Featured Book

Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein

Miss Nicole’s First Staff Pick!

code nameCode Name Verity is a young adult book with a great appeal to both teens and adults. In 1943, a British fighter plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France. One of the passengers is captured and she buys time  by writing out her story of the war focusing on her friendship with the plane’s pilot.

This book is so well developed and carefully crafted, with a twist that I didn’t see coming. It’s been on multiple Best Book Lists and was a Printz Honor Book.

Check it out!

And don’t miss the companion novel Rose Under Fire.
