I can normally tell if I will like a book or not just from the first few pages. That was so not true with Code Name Verity. This is one of those books that just sneak up on you unexpectedly and then just hits you over the head with its awesomeness. The friendship and love between Julie and MAddie will break your heart and reaffirm your beliefs in the goodness of humanity at the same damn time. Chills. That is the one word description for how this book made me feel. "Kiss me Hardy!". So good!!
