Oct. 11th, 1943—A British spy plane crashes in Nazi-occupied
France. Its pilot and passenger are best friends. One of the
girls has a chance at survival. The other has lost the game
before it's barely begun.
When “Verity” is arrested
by the Gestapo, she's sure she doesn’t stand a chance. As a
secret agent captured in enemy territory, she’s living a
spy’s worst nightmare. Her Nazi interrogators give her a
simple choice: reveal her mission or face a grisly execution.
As she intricately weaves her confession, Verity uncovers
her past, how she became friends with the pilot Maddie, and
why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane.
On each new scrap of paper, Verity battles for her life,
confronting her views on courage and failure and her
desperate hope to make it home. But will trading her secrets
be enough to save her from the enemy?
Harrowing and beautifully written, Elizabeth Wein creates a
visceral read of danger, resolve, and survival that shows
just how far true friends will go to save each other.
Code Name Verity is an outstanding novel that will
stick with you long after the last page.

I love suspense & this sounds like a great read. Haven't read your books before & would love to win the opportunity to. I'm always looking for new authors to read and add to favorite authors list at my favorite book store.
