Publisher's Summary

The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school - that is, it would be if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses, but it's really a school for spies.

Cammie Morgan is a second-generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year she's already fluent in 14 languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (one of which involves a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for a boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.

Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through town without his ever being the wiser - but can she have a relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her?

Cammie may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she's beginning her most dangerous mission - falling in love.

I wanted to love this, but it missed the mark.

The story was a little too focused on boys and romance for me; I wanted this to be a little more adventurous and a little deeper, but found instead that it was typical teen stuff, in a new setting.
I also found the narrator cloying... she worked hard to make her voice sound young, and while she settled in after a while, it didn't work for me. (The times when she portrayed adult characters, I found her voice much richer.)
all that said, I LIKED the story, I just hoped for something a little more.

AWESOME!

This is a great book for girls/teens! I listened to this before I gave my students the option to read the book. I liked the narrator's voices and what's best is that there isn't any inappropriate content in the book (which the exception of "hell" that was written once or twice). I would highly recommend this spectacular "spy" book!

Teen lit

Bought for a road trip with my 12 year old niece. I feel very silly, but I liked the 2 we listened to in the series. They were cute and sweet great tween books that aren't full of sex or violence. I was not bored or annoyed to listen.

Cute story

This is the second series I have read/listened to by Ally Carter. I LOVED the Heist Society novels and the first in the Gallagher Girls series didn't dissapoint. The book is humorous and witty. Despite the fact the main character is a fifteen year old spy in training, she still deals with real teenage girl problems.

Appeals to the teen girl I once was

Ok, so this book wasn't good as Heist Society, but I am fast becoming an Ally Carter fan! The Gallagher Girls are just great fun. Not only did I relate to the boarding school misconceptions, I whole-heartedly enjoyed the homage paid to Alias and other spy genre greats. I wondered if the main characters in both series would be similar, but Carter crafts them uniquely despite the similarities in their secret-filled lives. I enjoyed the light-hearted humor that kept potentially intense scenes from being taken too seriously. Unlike Alias, this is no "Project Christmas" creating super-human spies. No matter what the girls' special skills, they are all still just high school girls with high school girl problems. See you in sub level 2.

Great YA with it all-romance,mystery,action

I love this whole series. My first dip into YA fiction. Boarding school narrative with a twist- these girls are training to be spies. The townies think this is an exclusive school for spoiled rich girls. Our lead character acts on a crush on a townie and her suitemates help her. These girls have rigorous classes and exciting training exercises. Great book for middle schoolers and older.

good for youth

I love this author, but did not realize this is a great book for teens, not so much for adults.

Humor and excitement at the same time

I don't normally give reviews, but I thought this was far beyond the normal in both writing and the reading. Great entertaining

Fun, lighthearted girl series.

I liked this series. Was it the best thing I ever read? No. But it was entertaining enough to read in its entirety. Mindless and easy fun.
