Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
This book is a perfect blend of heroism, adventure, and friendship. Though it takes place during WWII this is more of a historical fiction piece than a war novel. The story focuses on a captured spy for the British crown nicknamed Queenie or Scottie (we don’t learn her real name until almost halfway through), and the story of her friendship with a female pilot named Maddie while she is writing her confession to her Nazi captors. There are plenty of twists and heart-wrenching moments in this book; it is a veritable roller-coaster ride.
