Code Name Verity What's Up With the Ending?

By Elizabeth Wein

What's Up With the Ending?

The very end of Code Name Verity is a letter from Julie's mother to Maddie. Structurally, it mirrors the letter at the end of Part 1, which is from SS-Sturmbannführer Nikolaus Ferber calling for Julie's execution. The final letter also mentions Julie's death, assuring Maddie that she did the right thing. It provides significant closure for the text, letting us know where Julie and Maddie's stories—and Maddie's Eterpen—end up. Further, readers can take consolation in the fact that Julie's mother feels some of Julie lives on in Maddie.
