I had heard a lot of great reviews of Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, but I wasn’t sure if I would want to read it. I don’t often read historical fiction, especially not war fiction. Also, the cover kind of freaked me out. (I know, I know–don’t judge a book by its cover. But everyone does it!) But since I’d heard so much about Code Name Verity (and observed Abby ignoring everybody at lunch so she could read more of it), I decided I might as well jump in and read it myself. And I’m super glad I did!
