Opening Lines: “Target’s aquired, ten o’clock.” My best friend’s voice was as cool as the wind as it blew off the Thames.

Favorite Characters: Mr. Solomon, Zach, Bex
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….
This is my favorite Gallagher Girls book so far. It’s obvious that Cammie has matured from the first book, which is both good and bad. Good that she’s growing up and bad that she’s gotten far more serious and spends more time fighting for her life then attempting to date a ‘normal’ boy.
I like these books because the Gallagher Academy is like the Hogwarts for spies. Full of secret passageways, different traps, and a whole lot of secrets, the Academy just seems like a fun place to live in [when, you know, you’re not fighting for your life].
Cammie and her friends are both funny and smart, each with their own set of strengths and weaknesses. I especially get a kick out of Liz-supergenius, but not so great when it comes to field work.
Only the Good Spy Young builds on what was left from Book 3, Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover. The plot thickens as Cammie races to figure out what [and who] the Circle is and what exactly it wants with her.
I loved this book! I give it 5/5 stars.
