‘Smart, sassy and seriously fun' SUNDAY TASMANIAN
Welcome to the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, where students kickbox in PE, disarm bombs in science and are awarded extra credit in computing if they manage to crack CIA codes. Gallagher might claim to be a school for geniuses, but it’s really a school for spies.
Fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man with a stick of uncooked spaghetti, Cammie Morgan figures she knows a thing or two… until she falls for a regular boy who thinks she’s a regular girl.
She can tap his phone, hack into his computer and track him through town without his ever being the wiser. But can she play girlfriend to someone who can never know the truth about her?
ALLY CARTER’s bestselling Gallagher Girls series continues with Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy.
The spy game isn't just a guy game, as witnessed by Carter's diverting entry into the flurry of teen espionage novels flashing loads of girl power. Unfortunately, Raudman sounds like she's straining (and sometimes squeakily so) to sound younger than she is and her intonation is a bit off, giving her reading a falseness that's hard to overcome. Cammie is a sophomore at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women a place that lives up to its name, as Cammie knows 14 languages and is a skilled killing machine. Of course, Gallagher girls become the most elite spies, and Cammie fires ahead on that career track (as was her mother, now the school's headmistress) until romance with an ordinary guy, no less threatens to derail her progress. Despite any shortcomings, aficionados of this burgeoning fiction genre will be tempted to give this title a go. Ages 12-up.
This book is pretty good, but kinda outdated. That's ok tho, considering it was written over a decade ago! Four stars!
i love ally carter so much, can't wait for the fifth gallagher girls book to come out !
Personally I really enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down! Ally carter is one of my favourite authors and she writes amazing books. I really enjoyed the intense and exhilarating moments in this action and romance packed novel. You could picture every moment in your head and the text was easy to understand. I enjoyed tagging along with the characters (jammie❣️) on their emotional journey through secrets, espionage and teenage love. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series and I recommend this Novel to teenage girls searching for adventure. Also, I personally believe the Gallagher academy forgot to mail me their letter of attendance 2 years ago (if ya know what I mean)!
