4 STARS: I Really Liked It
Cammie Morgan is back, and it’s clear that her life hasn’t calmed down since the events of I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You. At first, giddy anticipation is in the air. Gallagher Academy, Cammie’s elite spy school, is hosting a visit from the Ethan Frome Academy, a covert training center for boys. Soon after the boys’ arrival, though, everything goes dangerously awry when a series of security breaches are discovered at the academy. Worse yet, teenage agent-in-training Cammie is being blamed for the penetration. With the school’s top-secret status at risk, the Gallagher Girls have to work quickly to save their beloved school. Girl sleuths with nice asides on youthful crushes.
Wow! I guess I read that in a day! You’re getting a lot of Ally Carter reviews in a row because I’m trying to review books as soon as I read them. I’m on a spy kick at the moment and loving it.
Cammie is just too cool, what else can I say? I want to be like her and take a defense class or something. I have to say the boy interest in this book is more intriguing to me than the first one. Zach is at least as strong as her and mysterious. I wanted to trust him from the start but couldn’t decide if he was trustworthy, just like Cammie.
Again, I was laughing out loud! It was a flirty, funny, and exciting read!
