Review of Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy - Ally Carter

Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy- Ally Carter

From Goodreads- After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world...for spies.
Cammie may have a genius IQ , but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?

Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her best friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests--code name: "Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top-secret status at risk. Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart--and her beloved school--are higher than ever.



Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy is the second book in Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series, and it was just as entertaining as the first book. Bez, Macy Liz, and Cammie are all back from vacation and ready to resume classes at Gallagher's when they start getting the feeling something just isn't quite right. Of course, the girls just can't let it go, so they decide to use some of the skills they have acquired, and find out whats going on.

I really enjoy this YA series, partly because of the characters, which are so well-rounded, and partly because of the basis of the series, girl spies. The spy hijinks are in full force in this book with a added bonus that I really don't want to give away, so I'll leave it out of my review. ;)

At first I was a little disappointed that I didn't get much of Josh in this book, but I quickly got lost in the girls tomfoolery, that I forgot all about my displeasure of no Josh.

Ally Carter's writing style is very simple, and easy, she really does write for young adults. My 11 yr. old daughter is reading this series with me, and it is really holding her attention. What more can I ask for. I've asked her to write the final word, so here she goes....

Final words, this book is cool. I've told my friends about it, and I totally want to be a spy now. Read it.

Rating: 4/5
