Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Club Rating: 3.5

This book is told by two women ....two women who are the best of friends.  One woman is a secret agent and the other is a pilot.  It all takes place in war time Nazi-occupied France.  The secret agent is captured and interrogated.  Her written confessions weave the history of a friendship between herself and her pilot Maddie.  Julie/Queenie/Verity and Maddy/Cathy  the pilot, The Interragor Von Ingle and the interrpretor was Ingle and Jamie was the brother were the main characters but, this was a plot driven book (not character) .  It really highlighted the role of women in WWII.
