Code Name Verity is the story of a friendship between 2 women during World War II: upper class Scot and debutante Julie and working class Maddie. The two halves of the book tell the tale of how they meet, become friends, join the war effort, and are shot down over France during a rather unusual mission. Julie is captured by the Germans and Maddie dies in the crash. The first half of the book is Julie’s confession written on paper that varies from sheet music to unused recipe cards. She gives her captors what they want in return for her clothing and slightly better treatment. At the close of her section, it appears that the story of Julie and Maddie is over.
