Cammie Morgan is back, and it’s clear that her life hasn’t calmed down since the events of I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You. At first, giddy anticipation is in the air. Gallagher Academy, Cammie’s elite spy school, is hosting a visit from a covert training center for boys. Soon after the boys’ arrival, though, everything goes dangerously awry when a series of security breaches are discovered at the academy. Worse yet, teenage agent-in-training Cammie is being blamed for the penetration. With the school’s top-secret status at risk, the Gallagher Girls have to work quickly to save their beloved school.
I can’t stop thinking about this series.
It’s so addictive I’m truly scared I’m not going to be able to ever forget it and I have this feeling that it’s ruining the ‘espionage’ YA genre for me, because I don’t think I’ll ever find a book/series of that genre as good as this one.
But you know what? I don’t care anymore.
I love this series and I’m going to love it with all my heart. I can say this, even though this is only the second book, since this is a reread for me: The Gallagher Girls is in my top 10 favourite series of all time.
The narration, let me tell you, is one of the things you’ll like most. We’re told that the characters are super intelligent and incredible spies, but honestly, we don’t even have to be told that; we can see it through their actions, ways of thinking and processing information and their passion.
They want to save the world and they’re willing to sacrifice so much for humanity.
So, reader, are you ready for more action, intricate romance, peculiarly developed mystery and fun? Come on, let me hear you say it. HELL YEAH.
