Code Name VeritySpy's worst nightmare Her Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice reveal her mission or face a grisly executionAs 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 Do you remember when The English Patient came out Or rather do you remember when the Seinfeld episode about The English Patient came out Elaine goes to see it and HATES it and is either shunned or dragged back to the theater to rewatch because everyone else loves it She ends up getting sent to Tunisia by her boss J Peterman because the movie was filmed there Cameo by Holly the waitresswitch from True Blood playing a waitressI'm usually Elaine in these situations so I worried a little bit after reading glowing review after glowing review of Code Name Verity However this book held my attention from the beginning and I want to send all the Elaines to Ormaie for inspirationSomething that I see authors and filmmakers struggle with is how to portray a strong kick ass female who can hang with the boys and still retain her femininity One way is to sexualize them a la Angelina Jolie and another way is to claim they are the fiercest assassin of all time and then have them fawn over pretty dresses See she's tough but girly Yes I read Throne of Glass just before Code Name Verity Elizabeth Wein however makes it look so simple with her portrayal of ueenie Little details like neatly arranged hairpins and well maintained fingernails say so much than a ball gown and it keeps you within the context of the storySpeaking of the story it's set during World War II when most of the men are off fighting Still given the current state of YA I fully expected a love triangle to somehow get shoehorned in I did get a love story but not the one I dreadedexpectedIt's like being in love discovering your best friendThe friendship between ueenie and Maddie two people from different backgrounds who wouldn't have met under ordinary circumstances is one that I loved reading It's the bond between two soldiers who contribute to the war effort in their different ways whether it's aviation or language proficiency The story jumps from present to past but I loved seeing how their relationship evolved One discussion that struck a nerve with me was when early in their friendship they talk about their fears In your 20s the looming milestone is 30 When people asked me what I was going to do for 30 I would say Ugh kill myself It's the vanity and arrogance of youth of privilege of safety ueenie is the same until that privilege is no longer in her control She saysI am no longer afraid of getting old Indeed I can't believe I ever said anything so stupid So childish So offensive and arrogant But mainly so very very stupid I desperately want to grow oldueenie is one of my favorite characters ever up there with Evanjalin from Finnikin of the Rock Her intelligence and boldness comes through the page and Wein's writing exemplifies the principle of show don't tell I loved this story of war camaraderie and sacrifice I loved ueenie's mother who left the windows open in her house in the hope that her children would be home soon because this is also a story about faith ueenie and Maddie have to have faith in each other and faith in the strangers on whose help they depend This was one of my favorite books of 2012 and one I highly recommend I have told the truthRating 55 stars This review appears on Young Adult Anonymous No Elaines were harmed in the writing of this review
