UKYA Book of the Year: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Nominated by Brigid Coady:

images“A heartbreaking but affirming adventure story about female friendship. Set in World War 2, from its first line is ‘I AM A COWARD’ it hooks you in and doesn’t let go.

“I can’t say much more about the plot without giving it away. Let me say this, I have bought copies as Christmas presents for two of my best friends and my mother. You MUST read this book!”
