Hey it’s Alexa, and we’re back to book reviews! This one, however, is quite a bit different than any I’ve ever done before. To be honest, I wasn’t going to review this story. Frankly, it hurt me, and I didn’t really like that. But the review I intended to post just wasn’t working for me, … More Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (Alexa’s Review)

Alexa, here! So this week’s world comes from an older book I picked up at my library. It’s technically a contemporary I guess, though the copyright date says 1993, and what you call a twenty-two-year-old realistic fiction, I’m not entirely certain. But anyway.
