A nice blend of fun chick lit and cool spy gadgets. Cameron Morgan goes to Gallagher Academy- a top-secret, all-girls spy school. She's happy and confident about her future career as a spy. Then one day Cammie meets Josh. He's cute and she really likes him, but there's one problem: she can't tell him about her top-secret life, so she makes up a cover story. But how long can she lie to Josh? The more she sees him, the harder it gets. This was a fun book and I look forward to reading more about the Gallagher girls.
I had seen these books advertised around for a while but was never really interested in reading them. However, I was reading the description a couple of weeks ago on Goodreads and realized that it really sounded like it would be a really fun read. And I wasn't wrong; this book was really fantastic in a completely fun, adorable way.So, Cammie Morgan is a student in a typical, prestigious, private, all-girls school called The Gallagher Academy. Or, at least, it WOULD be typical, except that this is a school for female spies. While on an assignment for her Covert Operations course, she meets a boy named Josh, and that's when Cammie's well-planned, well thought-out world completely changes. She can't tell Josh anything about herself, because of where she goes to school and who she'll be in the future, so what follows is basically Cammie living two different lives: her real one, and the one she creates for herself when she's with Josh.First of all, all of the spy stuff in this book was awesome. I loved all the backgrounds for the teachers, and the lessons in their classrooms, and the little asides about various accidents that the girls have had while learning to be spies. However, the big draw of this book for me personally was just that the whole thing had a really fun, totally cool vibe about it. I loved Cammie. She has such a quick wit and sense of humor, and there were some serious laugh-out-loud moments in her narration. She just seemed very real to me, and I loved every second of her. Her interactions with Josh were absolutely perfect; this is truly a book that describes that feeling you get when you meet your first crush and are starting out in a relationship. Honestly I can't find any other word to use to describe Cammie and Josh except for "adorable". The whole thing just made me want to draw hearts all over it.
The beginning to one of the best book series I have read, The beginning was great, the middle was great, and the ending was even better which is saying a lot considering how great the whole story is. Surely something everyone has read, and if not will have to read soon.
This book is a quick and a fun read. This book is about a girl named Cammie who goes to an all girls school for spies. At this school, the girls learn all about being a spy and what the line of work entails. They take classes such as covert operations, advanced encryption and they learn to speak fourteen languages. This book has something for everybody. It has adventure, suspense, romance, best friends and typical high school drama (if you're a spy). I would definitely recommend reading the entire series. In my opinion each book is just as great as the last. Also as you read each book of the series the plot thickens as new characters are introduced and more information is revealed. Right now there are five books in the series and soon to be a sixth.
