Code Name Verity is a complex novel of young female pilots in World War II packed with torture, treachery, intrigue, and wartime violence with an intense friendship at the core. While a bit slow to start, this one’s worth sticking around for.

It's one of those books you have to fight your way through, then all of the sudden you turn the page and you are hooked. Couldn't put it down for about the last 1/3 of the book. Worth getting through!

Elizabeth Wein's book Rose Under Fire comes out in the US on September 10, 2013! Here's the description: While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrck, the notorious womens concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate thats in store for her? Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling "Code Name Verity," delivers another stunning WWII thriller. The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.

An absolutely beautiful novel about courage and friendship. I would rank it in the top 10 of YA novels that I've read in my life.

Loved this book. Waited and put off reading it for too long, I'm glad I finally got to it. What a joy to read. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read it.

Beautiful book, just beautiful. I find it also defines the first person narrative, showing how it can be tailored to the character's needs. Loved Maddie and Julie. Brilliant characters, brilliant book. Also shows another side of the war - very interesting.

This story is wonderfully told. It does not fall back on paranormal activity or mental disorders to hold the audience's attention, but witty writing and good plot development. I was happily, pleasantly surprised by this novel about a spy who gets caught during WWII.

"'Fräulein Engel, you are not a student of literature," he [von Linden] said. The English flight officer has studied the craft of the novel. She is making use of suspense and foreshadowing.' _ Golly, Engel stared at him. I, of course, took the opportunity to interpose with pigheaded Wallace pride, 'I am not English, you ignorant Jerry bastard, I am a SCOT.' _ Engel dutifully slapped me into science and said, 'She is not writing a novel. She is making a report.' _ 'But she is employing the literary conceits and techniques of a novel.'" Pg 57 ( _ = new paragraph)

"So then we had a genial argument about Orwellian socialism. He (v.L.) disapproves (obviously, as Orwell spent five months battling the idiot Fascists in Spain in 1937), and I (who don't always agree with Orwell either but for different reasons) said that I didn't think my experience as a scullion exactly matched Orwell's, if that was what v.L. was getting at, albeit we may have found ourselves working in similar French hotel basements for similar rates of pay (Orwell's somewhat higher than mine, as I seem to recall he was given an allowance of a couple of bottles of wine in addition to raw potato peelings)."

“It’s awful, telling it like this, isn’t it? As though we didn’t know the ending. As though it could have another ending. It’s like watching Romeo drink poison. Every time you see it you get fooled into thinking his girlfriend might wake up and stop him. Every single time you see it you want to shout, You stupid ass, just wait a minute and she’ll open her eyes! Oi, you, you twat, open your eyes, wake up! Don’t die this time! But they always do.” ― Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity
