Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover by Ally Carter


When Cammie "the Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept a nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnapper's dangerous plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did.

Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can they keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth...


This series gets better and better with every book! When I read I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You I wasn't sure I even liked it. I was entertained and I thought it had potential but I wasn't sure I wanted to read the rest of the series. Then I read Cross My Heart And Hope To Spy and things got better, the characters were more developed and I was getting way more in to the story.

Now with Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover I am completely in love with this series. The Gallagher Girls are officially on my YOU MUST READ list.

In the third book Cammie and company continue to break the rules and venture beyond the safety of the walls of their school and their adventures make for an amazing read. This book introduced more characters that are captivating (Cammie's super spy Aunt Abby) and added more depth and layers to the characters I already liked (Macey gets better and better with every book).

As the girls in the book get older so do the spy missions and adventures. They are no longer going through boys garbage to see if he might like Cammie, now they are battling hundred year old grudges and Carter has me completely captivated.

My Favorite Quote

"Whatever the case, that didn't change the fact that a very cute, very mysterious spy by was either out to save us, or kidnap us, or date us. And I wasn't sure which one we were best equipped to handle."

The fourth Gallagher Girl book comes out TOMORROW and I can't wait to continue the adventure.

Here is the summary for Only The Good Spy Young

When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when she faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.

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.

In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth as they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past....
