Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (and the Library’s Teen Films for July 15 – 21)

Code Name VerityHow do you confess to being a spy, and not really give away any information? That is the dilemma facing “Verity”, a very young British spy captured in Nazi occupied France. Forced to write a confession, she tells the story of how she and the pilot who became her best friend met and trained for the service. But who is “Verity”? And what is she really writing – a confession, or something much more? And what about the pilot? What really happened after “Verity” jumped out of that plane? This is one of those books that gets under your skin, and stays there. All the major characters are more than meets the eye, and a gripping, compelling story unfolds under the writings of “Verity”, and what happens after she’s done writing. Darkly moving, thought provoking, and unforgettable, Code Name Verity is a one of a kind experience. And, food for thought, the definition of verity is something that is true, as a principle, belief, idea, or statement: the eternal verities.
