Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Code Name Verity

Holly Alder, August 5, 2012

For those of you who aren't already familiar with Wein's masterful "Winter Prince" series, here's another chance to meet an author who not only writes exquisite prose, but whose stunning plot twists will leave you breathless. Her choice of protagonists for this book, girls who were teen air force pilots and international spies in the World War II, is surely going to put her in the running for the Carnegie medal! Don't miss this book!

A new classic in the style of Alice in Wonderland, but even better. A wonderful read-aloud for the whole family.
