One thought on “Recommended Read: Code Name Verity

  1. This is one of those books that I had an IMMENSELY hard time getting through, for both plot development and personal reasons. If it weren’t for my book club (FYA San Diego) assigning it, I don’t think I would have picked it.

    If I hadn’t slogged through the first half, I never would have made it to the amazingly well done second half. That said, I definitely recommend it!
