I don't normally review books on Amazon, but this one is special. Code Name Verity is sure to stick with me forever. The plot is essentially about two women fighting in World War II. However, as the story goes on, readers really come to understand that this is a story about friendship. Immediately after reading, you will want to call up your best friend and maybe go out to lunch or something. It may take you a few pages to really get into it, and at some points it may seem a bit tempting to just give up, but KEEP READING! Make it all the way to the end! Trust me, it's worth it. You will laugh and you will cry while reading this book, and once you finish, you'll want to experience all over again. This is one of those books where you can only read it for the first time once. Know what I mean? I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is beautifully written and has a wonderful meaning to it. READ IT!! NOW!! I can almost guarantee, you will fall in love with it just as much as I did.
Oh, and if you're planning to just buzz through Code Name Verity overnight, you've got a surprise coming! Take at least a good week to read this book to really absorb everything and the sheer brilliance of the characters. So what are you waiting for? Try it out for yourself.
