Description
(Winner of the 2013 Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Novel and a Michael L. Printz Honor Book; shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal) A Best Book or Best Young Adult Book of the Year for the School Library Journal, Horn Book Magazine, Chicago Public Library, Library Journal, BookPage, and a slew of other journals and reviews—Nancy Pearl, commenting on NPR, called it "one of the smartest, and best, novels of the year"—this young adult novel is a rare beast: a wartime spy novel almost entirely about women. Verity, a captured British agent facing torture and execution at the hands of the Gestapo, offers written "confessions" to ease her situation. But what she gives her captors is an endless looping maze of assumed identities and half-truths, at the center of which is the pilot who flew her to France and crashed, her best friend Maddie.

"A fiendishly plotted mind game of a novel, the kind you have to read twice."—NYTimes

"This is a remarkable book, which had me horrified and totally gripped at the same time, and although it is billed as a Young Adult title, don't be put off—it is a very grown-up story."—Daily Mail (London)
