Here's the thing about covert operations: bad things happen when you least expect them. The enemies don't give you a head's up. And they never let you stop to put on comfortable shoes.
A spy-in-training, Cammie Morgan has a cover for every occasion. But what happens when she is forced to break it to save her best friend, Macey? Cammie and her friends are determined to hunt down the group that threatens to tear their secret sisterhood apart. This time it's personal.

Rating: 4/5

This is the third book in the Gallagher Girls series and, yet again, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Another exciting semester, making for another great read.

The Gallagher Academy's new term brings a mystery. Someone is after Macey and to protect their best friend, Cammie, Liz and Bex take it on themselves to do some digging, but wherever they go things never seem to add up. Someone knows a lot more than they're letting on, but who? And why does mysterious spy-guy, Zach, keep showing up?

My favourite character remained the same. Zach. He's just such an intriguing character - you just want to find out who he really is. He has a tendency just to disappear and whenever he did, it was so frustrating! He wouldn't let anyone in on anything! Of course, Cammie the Chameleon (quite a fitting name for this novel since a big part of it is the art of disguise) was still a very enjoyable character. I also felt sorry toward her because nobody would tell her anything, if I were in her situation, I'd be annoyed and upset too!

The only criticism I have is the action... again. Did everyone get what I meant when I said action action in the last post? Well I'm meaning the type of action in the Alex Rider novels (if you are a fan of them, you should try the Gallagher Girls series). The scene near the start of this novel was quite action-like, so if there was just a little more like that then it would be one mark better! Also, the twist near the end I thought was quite predictable... but that didn't change my opinion on the book at all, if anything, it added to the book! It let us into what the next book would focus on!

Overall, this was another very pleasurable read by Ally Carter and I definetly recommend reading this series! Great characters, another good story-line and generally... just great!

Happy Reading,
