Elizabeth Wein’s wonderful novel Code Name Verity won the Edgar Award for the best young adult mystery/thriller in 2013. She also has a new book coming out, Rose Under Fire. I have never met Elizabeth Wein, but I loved Code Name Verity and can’t wait to read her new book.
Correction: I misidentified a plant in my April 28, 2013 photographs.This plant is called Spanish bluebells, which is a monocot. I said they were Virginia bluebells, which is a dicot. (The leaves in the photograph are vinca.)
