Where do I even begin with this?
I finished this book in JUNE and it’s been over 7 months and I still can’t get myself to form words great enough to praise this MIND-BLOWING experience of a book. I was left emotionally wrecked after finishing Code Name Verity.
It was written in such a way that I felt every single emotion and hurt right along with them. I WAS A COMPLETE MESS. No matter how hard I tried to close the book and sleep I couldn’t because the writing made me so invested in the story and the unbreakable bond of Verity and Maddie. Their friendship was like no other and I became emotionally attached to them both.
Even after all this time I still can’t fully form the words to describe this book. I’m not exactly sure how I handled the end of the story, but I knew it involved ugly sobbing and a lot of ice cream. I wasn’t able to read another book for DAYS! Code Name Verity is most definitely one of my favorite books of 2012, if not one of my favorite books I’ve read so far.
Overall: 5 out of 5
"KISS ME, HARDY!"
