Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
Cammie Morgan and her best friend Macy cannot seem to get a break, even if it is summer and school is closed. She and her friends go to the top secret Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, where young girls are trained to excel at spy tactics and undercover operations. While in Boston, campaigning with her father for the upcoming presidential elections, Macy and the presidential candidate's son are attacked by highly trained professionals, who do not seem surprised in the least at the girls' uncanny ability to fend them off and fight on their own level. It seems that the girls' training may not be as top secret as they had hoped, and Cammie is determined to protect her best friend as well as the school that she loves, no matter what rules she has to break in order to do so. In yet another fun and upbeat adventure, the Gallagher girls prove once again that they are up for anything. Ally Carter's light and engaging writing style will appeal to many young female readers looking for an adventure story about girls who are not afraid to fight their own battles. Both parents and teachers will rejoice in a teen novel that revels in adventure with just a hint of romance that younger female readers will be able to enjoy. Look for another book in the series coming soon! Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta

Macey's father is accepting the vice presidential nomination for his party, and her friend Cammie is invited to the celebration. After prepping for the official announcement, both girls and Preston Winters, the presidential nominee's teenage son, head to the next item on their schedule. Arriving on the rooftop, Cammie realizes that something is not right a split second before they are ambushed. Cammie gets Preston to safety but Macey's arm is broken, and Cammie suffers a head injury after pulling Macey into an air shaft. Waking up in Mr. Solomon's safe house the next day, Cammie is certain that their attackers meant business. Cammie and her friends are determined to protect Macey no matter what, and they are willing to break all of the rules if necessary. While in disguise, Cammie spots Zach talking with Mr. Solomon, leaving her to wonder if she really understands what is going on. Can the friends find and then fight their enemies if they are not sure who is on which side? The joy of reading the newest Gallagher Girl adventure is offset only by another mysterious, cliffhanger ending. These girls remain the most awesome, kick-butt teens ever, but now readers are also getting a glimpse at what makes them vulnerable. Cammie's family story, both past and present, is deepened with the appearance of her Aunt as Macey's personal Secret Service Agent. A few more tidbits about Zach's story are thrown in to keep Cammie—and the reader—guessing. This reviewer loves the series, enjoyed this book, and is struggling to wait for the next one.

School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—Move over Nancy Drew! Cameron Morgan attends a secret spy school for girls, Gallagher Academy, which has been training female spies since the Civil War. During summer vacation, Cammie goes to Boston to see her best friend Macey, whose father will be accepting a vice presidential nomination. When three masked figures drop out of a helicopter and attempt to kidnap Macey, Cammie and her friend fight off the attackers and barely escape alive. They go back in school to begin their junior year, but no longer feel safe. Cammie is determined to figure out who is after Macey, so she teams up with their other two roommates to solve the mystery. Ally Carter's third book (Hyperion, 2009) in the Gallager Girls series is read by Renee Raudman who creates recognizable voices for all of the characters. Although her southern accent is a little over the top, her British accent is spot-on. Fans of the series will enjoy this audibook and eagerly await the next title.—Samantha Larsen, West Jordan Library, UT
