Code Name Verity Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
'I have two weeks. You'll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.' Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, Code Name Verity is a bestselling tale of friendship and courage set against the backdrop of World War Two. Only in wartime could a stalwart lass from Manchester rub shoulders with a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a special operations executive.Â When a vital mission goes wrong, and one of the friends has to bail out of a faulty plane over France, she is captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war.
The story begins in â€˜Verityâ€™sâ€™ own words, as she writes her account for her captors. Truth or lies? Honour or betrayal? Everything theyâ€™ve ever believed in is put to the test â€¦ Elizabeth Wein is a leading voice in young adult historical fiction.
Her novelÂ Rose Under FireÂ wasÂ nominated for the Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the Costa Award 2014. Fans ofÂ The Book ThiefÂ and Carmen Reid'sÂ Cross My HeartÂ will love this. Look out for Elizabeth's other booksÂ Black Dove, White SwanÂ andÂ Rose Under Fire. Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania.
She is married with two children and now lives in Perth, Scotland. Elizabeth is a member of the Ninety-Nines, the International Organization of Women Pilots.Â 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 her bestselling, award-winning novelÂ Code Name Verity. â€˜A remarkable bookâ€™ Daily Mail
