Teen Review by Lauren. . .Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Cammie Morgan is in London with one of her best friends when, once again, the world goes dark. But this time the Chameleon isn't attacked by the secret terrorist group, the Circle of Cavan. This time, her teacher just wants a word. So why is everyone acting like he's the bad guy? Many secrets are revealed, but even more are kept.

Once she makes it back to school, Cammie has to deal with a weird MI6 agent/teacher and the extreme security measures suddenly covering her beloved school. But most of all, she has to decide what to think of the man who was both her father's best friend (and maybe his killer) and the boy siding with him (or her, or both?) She finds out much by following her mentor's advice to "follow the pigeons", but will anyone believe her in time to save her teacher, her school, and even her life?

The fourth installment in the Gallagher Girls series is one of those books you just can't put down. A lot of things in the beginning don't make sense until you read the end, but isn't that how a spy's life works? Sadly, you should be prepared for the cliff you are, almost literally, left hanging off of at the end, but that just makes you desperate for the next one. Only The Good Spy Young is a definite must-read.

It never fails to amaze me how popular Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series is. Glad you enjoyed it, Lauren, and thanks for the review. Still waiting for your copy of the latest Gallagher Girls book? Check out one of these:
