Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

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....

And so the plot thickens...

With each and every Gallagher Girls book the series gets better and better. In the first, we met Cammie and were introduced to her swanky boarding school and ultra-secret sisterhood of spies. In the second, the appearance of the Blackthorne boys rocked Cammie’s world, and sent her searching for answers about their past. In the third, Cammie’s training went from hypothetical situations to life-or-death with a revelation that changed it all. Now, with Only the Good Spy Young, nothing in Cammie’s world is what it seems and enemies lurk everywhere, shrouded by secrets.

As if that wasn’t enough to hook me, within the first ten pages Carter had my jaw-dropping. From then on there was no putting the book down. You couldn’t have pried it from my hands if you’d tried. Each chapter brought a new unexpected twist, a revelation I never could’ve seen coming. Carter found a way to make the already fabulous plot even better, and the stakes even higher.

The story was superb, the characters were awesome, the writing was the perfect mix of seriousness and humor – it was all amazing! The biggest testament to this is the fact that I literally spent the entirety of the book either (a) gasping in surprise, (b) gripping the book madly because I was so on edge, (c) screaming “NO!” in disbelief, or, in the case of the ending, (d) staring at the page with my mouth hanging open because I could not formulate any kind of response to what had just transpired.

Had I not been completely in love with the series beforehand, this book would’ve won me over hook, line, and sinker. It is by far the best Gallagher Girls yet. The next book cannot come fast enough!

5 stars!

  1. i don't normally read these books but based on your review i will. I sounds fun and light. :)

  2. Awesome review! I really need to read some Ally Carter.

  3. I can't find it in any bookstores near me. It's driving me insane. Based on everybody's reviews of it, I can't wait to find out what happens to Cammie and who the "double agent" is. I heard that it wasn't Zach, so Solomon was my second suspect, but then I heard it wasn't him either.
