Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”-but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?
Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.
This is only the second spy series I have read and I am a fan. It was different from the Alex Rider series in almost every way possible.
I was a little dubious when I started reading this book, I was worried there was going to be to much romance in it for me, given the title, I was pleasantly surprised. The story was fun, exciting and all though some parts it was a little far fetched, overall it was very believable.
It’s all the details. There were so many small details that you would not miss if the had not been there but they gave the story so much depth, I was glad they were there.
I liked how it was written as a report. It was clever and the reader learned a lot about the characters this way.
Cammie was a great lead character, she was not too cocky but was sure of herself, knew what she was good at and what she wasn’t. I liked the dynamic she had wit her friends, how they all had their own personalities and strengths as spies.
Josh seems like the boy next door but has potential to be able to keep up with Cammie. Hope he’s in the next book.
I found the middle of this book a little meh, but enjoyed it overall.
4 out of 5 stars.
