Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity, #1)  by Elizabeth Wein

This is a wonderful heart wrenching book that anyone who likes historical fiction should read. I normally do not like to reread books, but I realized that I wanted to read it again when I saw other people reading it. It was so worth rereading and I did not think that the second time reading it was boring. This book is about friendship and World War II. In this book, two best friends Maddie and Verity have to learn about friendship and survival. Maddie is a pilot and when her plane goes down while flying her friend to France, she too gets stuck in Nazi occupied France. Verity is a spy and gets captured by the Gestapo in Nazi occupied France. Verity has to make hard decision about whether or not to confess to the Nazis while Maddie tries to figure out what has happened to her friend. This story is told first from the perspective of Verity and secondly from the perspective of Maddie. It is really cool the way that the stories are so connected and woven together despite them not knowing what is happening to the other. This would be a great book club book and leaves many things open to debate. I loved it the whole way through and could not put it down. If you just want a good story or like historical fiction this is the book for you.
