While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
SQUEE!! I just finished the audiobook of Code Name Verity, which I downloaded as part of this summer's Audiobook SYNC. This was the title I was most anticipating, and I was not disappointed. Other reviews I've read are mixed, but I'm in the camp that found Code Name Verity to be bloody brilliant!
I don't know what I can say without spoilers, other than all is not what it seems in war-time Britain and France. I liked the artistic decision to use two narrators, one for Verity and one for Maddie. I loved how the repeated allusions to Nelson and to Peter Pan wove through the story. While the story of Maddie and Verity does not end well, I was riveted throughout the twists and turns (and cried at the end).
On to the companion volume: The Hiding Place, the memoir of Corrie ten Boom.
