Transcript of Code Name Verity Novel Study

Friendship is everlasting, it extends beyond the limits of death and distance.
“It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.”
Julie and Maddie meet under unlikely circumstances, yet they immediately click together. From that point on, their lives are connected and are a part of each other.
They can take everything away - but never your spirit.
Julie was a prisoner of war in
Code Name Verity
, meaning she was interrogated and tortured, stripped of everything she held dear. They literally took everything away from her, but in the end, she was still fighting to her last breath.
“Must stop. This ink is amazing, it really doesn't smear, even when you cry on it.”
This quote shows two important themes and parts to the story.
Code Name Verity
is written like a diary, first in the perspective of Julie [Verity], then continuing on to Maddie's point of view. Some how, both these girls end up pouring their hearts out, their tears and heartbreak onto paper and this is what this quote represents.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
When Julie writes down her story for the Nazi-interrogators in hopes of her life being spared, the truth is not what they expect. It's heartfelt and complicated, a person's desperation and hope furiously written onto a few hundred pieces of paper and stationary.

Novel Study

Memories are the only things that don’t change when everything else does.
After Julie dies, Maddie realizes how important her memories with her are now, and so she keeps them close to look back and to relive them again.
"Please come back soon. The window is always open.”
This line is spoken by Julie's mother at the end of the book to Maggie, showing how much she knew Maggie meant to Julie and how much Maggie had become of her family. Being friends connects you to an even larger web of friends and kind people who will help you out.

Friends and favours are endless, and will always find a way back to you.
Throughout the entire book, all the friends Maddie and Julie make somehow find a way back to them to repay them for the kind things or favours they did. It's a continuous cycle and a theme of the book.
Flying will bring you to new heights.
Ever since the beginning of the book, Maddie had loved flying. When she joined the military to serve in World War II, it brought her new experiences, new sights, and untimely led her to meet her best friend Julie.
The End
By Emily
Friendship is a huge main core theme in
Code Name Verity
and this picture shows how tightly Julie [Verity] and Maddie are bonded together, even though one dies in the end and they are separated for the majority of the book. Even so, they both think of each other often and have an extremely strong friendship.
Other people may call you different names, but your one true name is the one you call yourself.
Julie [Verity] has several different names: cover up names for when she's undercover, nicknames, and names other people call her. She has so many, it seems like sometimes you can get lost in them, but in the end, Julie tells the name she thinks is truly her to a fellow prisoner before she dies, symbolizing how much it means to her.
"We are a sensational team."
A quote used frequently throughout the book, it just goes to show how much Maddie and Julie were connected. They worked together, laughed together, and became more than regular best friends.
“A part of me will always be unflyable, stuck in the climb.”
Following the events of Julie's death, Maddie is heartbroken and cracked. Even though they only knew each other for a short time, they were best friends and a part of Maddie was lost when Julie died.
