[tps_title]Verity, Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
There isn’t much I can say here without giving away too many spoilers, but I’ll say this: Verity is a very important female heroine. All of the heroines listed here (and then some) are all in their own way special, exceptional, and all other synonyms, but there is something so realistic in this character. She’s set in the WWII era, which everyone learns about in History courses, Social Studies 101, and even while reading Hemingway; however, I think that’s what makes this book so compelling, and the female heroine so reachable but inspiring. You’re able to connect a character with a very real and raw state of time and being. Verity, AKA Queenie, a British
spy young woman, has been kidnapped by the Gestapo circa 1943 on an obviously gone wrong mission. The novel is presented as a confession from Julie (AKA Verity AKA Queenie), but as you read on, there is a realization that not everything is as it seems, but the one thing you can count on is that Verity is a God among mere mortals.
She’s flawed, compelling, and possesses a token of gold within her heart that many readers will look for in themselves even before they reach the end.
There’s also another badass female named Maggie who’s just as fiercely amazing as Verity. Two uplifting and beautiful heroines in one? Go! Read it now!
You know the drill for the above clip by now, I’m sure.
