Book 3 of the ‘Gallagher Girls’ series
“We’re moving,” the man beside me spoke into the microphone in his sleeve, and I knew the words weren’t for me. The August air was hot and thick with the smell of sea salt and bus exhaust. The roads were packed for miles, and everywhere I looked I saw shades of red, white, and blue.
Memorable Quote: The only way Bex would miss this would be if she were unconscious. And tied up. And in a concrete bunker. In Siberia.
Favorite Characters: Macey and Cammie
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 the 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 kidnappers’ 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 the Gallagher Girls 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..
I love Ally Carter, and have ever since my hands landed on the first Gallagher Girl book. This third installment doesn’t disappoint. It’s action packed-these girl spies barely have time for their beauty sleep. There’s also a bit of romance, because of course the book wouldn’t be complete without it. Zach again makes an appearance in this book.
The Gallagher Girls are great. Liz, Bex, and Macey-Cammie’s best friends-are each unique and interesting, each having their own area of expertise in the spy world. I think the teenage spy thing, although not an altogether new idea [I've read the Alex Rider books, which are also amazing] is refreshing from all of the vampire/werewolf/etc. books out there today.
So, I loved it. I was hooked from the first few pages, and the ending! I only began to suspect what was going to happen a few pages before it actually did, and I’m still shocked. I really need to get that fourth book now…
Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover gets 5/5 stars. I definitely recommend it!
