The SFWA European Hall of Fame: Sixteen Contemporary Masterpieces of Science Fiction from the Continent
Kathryn Morrow, James K. Morrow
Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein This book. Oh, this book. What to even say about this book. If you’ve read it you already know, and if you don’t…why haven’t you read this yet? Go get it right now.

The story of a friendship between a wireless operator and a pilot in WWII as told through the written confession of the one who is captured after their plan is shot down, this book starts by stabbing you in the heart and spends the rest of its pages twisting the blade. Such delicious agony.

Best accompanied by a box of tissues and a bottle of Scotch. And possibly salted caramels coated in dark chocolate.
