Code name Verity
By Elizabeth Wein

I am so looking forward to getting this book from the library. No vampires or fantasy, no dystopia but instead, a good solid read set during World War II. Two best friends (young women) are separated. One is left to bail out of a faulty plane over France. She is then captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war.
“Truth or lies? Honour or betrayal? Everything they’ve ever believed in is put to the test… ”

This trailer is perfect. The music, the colours, the whole format has wonderful appeal. The story is intriguing and I do confess to enjoying gritty realistic war stories.
