Publisher's Summary

After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world...for spies.

Cammie may have a genius I.Q., but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?

Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests - code name: Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top secret status at risk.

Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart - and her beloved school - are higher than ever.

THE BEST PREQUL

**NO SPOILERS ABOUT THIS BOOK IN THIS REVIEW :)**

ABOUT THE BOOK: Last semester, Cameron Ann Morgan made her choice to give up her first boyfriend and her first kiss, Josh. She also decided to leave the possibility of having a normal life to become a spy. Now all Cammie wants is to have a normal semester with her friends, sisterhood, and her mom the headmisstriss of her school. The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. Cammie hears of her mom and Mr. Solomon talking about a super-secret thing called "Blackthorn." Cammie and her friends have no idea what that means, but they intend to find out. Which leads them into meeting a set of spy boys. And one spy boy will change Cammie's life.

MY REVIEW: OK, so I have left a review for the first book in this series :). I really like this book much better. The writing feels a little better, I really feel that Cammie, her friends, and the other spy's in the series are real. I now REALLY want to meet Cammie and go see her school in Rosevill, Virginia (but I can't because this is just a book and not real:( THIS NEEDS TO BE A MOVIE) Anyway, Cammie and her friends grow up and learn more and more each second. The writing is beautiful, the narrator's voice is amazing. Not whiny like last book (which I love.) I love watching Cammie grow up and dive deeper into the secrets of the life she lives and learn about everything.

NARRATION QUALITY: So, I put a review in the last book as well, I feel it sounds as if the narrator has grown up so much. I really enjoy this narration quality much better than the last book.

BLUSH FACTOR: There is some kissing in this book, I still wish there would be less blush factor and more spy work.

RECOMMENDATION: Anyone can listen/read this, but I recommend this book to teens and young adults (12+).

Thanks for reading my review!

More Fun Gallagher Action

The Gallagher Girl books are good, clean YA stories with teen girl protagonists attending an all-school for training to be spies. The characters are all more capable in at least one area than would be generally believable, but that is true for most YA series and does not detract as their insecurities, misunderstandings and emotions are right for the tween years. The expanding depth and maturity of the characters is in line with both the characters' aging and a growing awareness of the world typical of the age level. An enjoyable listen for those wanting strong heroines or fun spy stories.

Gallagher girls are at it again

Great story - couldn't put it down. Ally does ac great job of keeping the story moving while providing enough details. Often I found myself remembering those first boyfriend's and all the emotions they brought.

Teenage girl spy novel

I first read this novel as a teenager and decided to listen to the series all the way through here on audible. I was definitely surprised at the things about this book that I had forgotten or were brought to life by listening to it rather than reading it.

Definitely a series that teenage girls and their friends could get together to listen to as a group.

Great Read

Started purchasing this series for my preteen boy before I realized this is a girls' series. As I purchased the books, someone had to read them, right? So, I did. As an adult, I love being able to listen and "escape" to an easier time of life. Good story line by Allie Carter and excellently performed (not read) by Renee Raudman.
