Product description


`It's a compelling, uncompromising read which makes few concessions to the age group it's written for - either in subject matter or narrative technique. The bits about flight and women in the war are well researched and the terrifying, but exciting, atmosphere is good.' * The Independant * `This is a remarkable book, which had me horrified and totally gripped at the same time, and although it is billed as a Young Adult title, don't be put off - it is a very grown-up story.' * The Daily Mail * `. . . a rare young adult novel entirely about female power and female friendship. . .' * New York Times * `[It] does more than stick with me. It haunts me. I just can't recommend it enough.' -- Maggie Stiefvater, bestselling author of Shiver `This is a rich and rewarding adventure story with multi-layered heroines and complicated emotions. All 450 pages really do fly by. Expect to see Wein's name in the running for the Older Readers Category of the Scottish Children's Book Awards next year.' * The Scotsman * `If you want an original read that will challenge your perceptions about truth, lies, bravery and deception, this is one for you.' * Sugarscape * `. . . passionate writing with an utterly compelling story.' -- Manda Scot, Chair of the Historical Writers' Association `. . . full of convincing detail, heart-stopping emotion and tension.' * The Bookseller * `It has been a while since I was so captivated by a character . . . Code Name Verity is one of those rare things: an exciting - and affecting - female adventure story.' * The Guardian * `[a] tale of espionage, torture and female derring-do.' * The Times *

About the Author

Elizabeth is a member of the Ninety-Nines, the International Organization of Women Pilots. She was awarded the Scottish Aero Club's Watson Cup for best student pilot in 2003 and it was her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for Code Name Verity.
