The first thing you should know about VERITY is how absolutely heartbreaking it is. It's the kind of book that induces ugly sobbing in the fetal position, even in a "never crier" like me.
I connected with Verity's narration so much, I wanted her to be real, to find a time machine to and come be my BFF. At the beginning of the novel, she admits to being a coward, to being someone who would give up all the codes to the enemy just for the comfort of getting her clothes back. But how reliable of a narrator is Verity? How much of anyone's words can we take at face value during a wartime operation filled with double agents?
It's a tense, intricate puzzler of a story with a bang of an ending. It will take a long time for my poor heart to recover from this one.
CODE NAME VERITY is available in hardcover now. Find out more about it at the author's website.
