Book Trailer of the Week– Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

This week’s book trailer of the week is for Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.  This trailer is really amazing, and captures the essence of this equally amazing novel.  Set in 1943, it tells the story of two young women.  Both girls are breaking the boundaries of their gender during the war.  Queenie is an expert wireless operator, and Maddie’s talent for flying planes finds her on some dangerous runs.  At the beginning of the novel, we find that Queenie has been captured by the Nazis and accused of being a spy.  She is forced to write about how she came to be captured, as a confession for the Nazis.  What Queenie reveals, however, is the friendship that developed between her and Maddie, in some of the most difficult and trying times of the war.  Later in the novel, perspectives change and Maddie tells the rest of the story and reveals what really happened when Queenie was captured.  Click here to find Code Name Verity in the Library!
