Only the Good Spy Young was by far my favorite in this series so far. Cammie finds herself not knowing whom to trust or what to believe, and it seems that nothing will ever be the same again. This one was full of twists that I didn't see coming, and I found myself basically racing through to see how things were going to play out.Also, it reminded me even more of my love of "Alias" with lots of double/triple agents, child trained mercenaries, and a cast of characters that won't stay dead. ;) Loved it!
This is the 4th book of the Gallagher Girls series. Cammie is at it again! At the end of the 3rd book she realized that the Circle is after her. Follow Cammie as she learns who her real friends are and who she can trust. She and her friends learn that they have been deceived by several that are close to them.
Cammie Morgan is a Gallagher Girl, one of an elite group of girls training to be spies. She has been training for a dangerous life as spy for years. But now, a junior at the Gallagher Academy, she is facing serious, life threatening danger. It’s not just classroom lessons and theory anymore. In a previous book, Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her. That’s when her life turned upside down. I could go into more detail than Amazon does, but I don’t want to spoil it for those who not have read the book.Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.Somehow I went straight from book one to book four. Even though there were some missing blanks along the way Carter does such an excellent job of storytelling that I was able to keep up with the general plot in book four, even though I have not yet read books two and three. This is what I like to call a smart girls series. Cammie Morgan is a strong female character with the brains and courage to carry the story all on her own. However, she doesn’t have to go it alone. Her roommates, her crush, and her teachers all combine to make this an interesting and well developed story. Each of the characters is amazingly strong and talented. Though I was able to pick up the storyline fairly easily without having read books two and three, I highly recommend that you read the books in order.Other books in the series include:I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls) Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy (Gallagher Girls) Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover (Gallagher Girls) Only the Good Spy Young (Gallagher Girls)Recommended for grades 6th and up.Rating: 5 of 5
Holy crap this book had me enthralled. I mean the last book had a slight cliffhanger but it has nothing on the ending here. The whole book kept me glued to the pages from cover to cover and howling in anguish when I realised I'll have a long wait for the next book!Cammie, Bex, Liz and Macey have all grown as a result of the events of <i>Never Judge a Girl By Her Cover</i> and the attitudes and actions in this book reflect this. When Cammie's world is turned upside-down she no longer knows who to trust aside from her family and her friends.
