Only the Good Spy Young

by Ally Carter

Hachette Australia. Young Adult, Mystery. Paperback rrp $16.99

Reviewer – Barbara Brown

Ally Carter is the teenage girl’s equivalent of Ian Fleming. In the Gallagher Girls series there’s everything a spy-in-training could want. Espionage, gadgets to shoot, blow up, even invisible ink!

Cammie Morgan is starting her junior year at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. The Gallagher Academy is no ordinary school. It is a school to train female spies. And Cammie is no ordinary student. Her mother is the Headmistress of the school and her father has been missing for many years, presumed dead. Both parents were high ranking spies and Cammie is now being pursued by a secret sect. Cammie, ‘the Chameleon’ is having trouble hiding.

When one of their own is thought to be a double agent, Cammie’s life is in far greater danger. Who can she trust and where can she get the answers to the puzzles everyone is keeping from her?

Fans of the Gallagher Girls won’t be disappointed in the fourth book in the series, newcomers you will love the action and thrilling storyline and everyone will be eager to read the first three books. The good news is there is definitely a fifth story imminent but the bad news is I can’t tell you why. It would spoil the story. Suffice it to say Cammie is still in danger and is putting all her friends, family and the spy boy, Zach, at risk.

The Reading Stack has also reviewed Ally Carter’s I’d Tell You I Love You but then I’d Have to Kill You, Cross my Heart and Hope to Spy, Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover and Heist Society. Heist Society has been long listed for a 2010 Inky.
