Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Code Name Verity

susan ramirez, January 19, 2013

Verity is a British spy, captured and tortured in German-occupied France before completing any part of her mission. She is in Scheherazade's position now, spinning out her story for a man who will kill her when she's done, or when it fails to interest him. Unfortunately, all he's interested in is intelligence that will help the Germans win the war. All Verity wants to talk about is Maddie, her best friend, the pilot who went down with the plane that brought her behind enemy lines. Fortunately, she's really good at storytelling.
