Book Trailer: Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein

Today is the UK release day for Elizabeth Wein's latest YA historical novel Code Name Verity.  This book was totally different from anything else I've read and gives a fascinating insight into WW2 from the point of view of a female spy.  I'll be posting my review later today but in the meantime I wanted to share the book trailer with you.

I have two weeks. You'll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.

That's what you do to enemy agents. It's what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dirty work like mine - and I will do anything, anything, to avoid SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer von Linden interrogating me again.

He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do is cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I'm going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France - and Allied Invasion of Two.

We are a sensational team.
