Book Review: Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Only the Good Spy Young
Author: Ally Carter
Publication: Hyperion Book CH (January 3, 2012)

Description: Millions of fans love the Gallagher Girls series, and this fourth volume delivers non-stop intrigue, danger, and action that no one will want to miss.
When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn't realize was that she would have to face off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her during her junior year. When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.

Now the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth as they discover that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.

My Thoughts: In each Gallagher book the stakes get higher and the action darker. The action is this story is non-stop. Everyone is determined to protect Cammie from the Circle of Cavan who wants her for some unknown purpose. 

Mr. Solomon is outed as a double agent who has been working with the Circle since he was a boy. Cammie, Macey, Bex, and Liz can't believe that could be true but all the adults are telling them that it is. That sort of betrayal is especially hard for Cammie to accept because he was her father's best friend. She is determined to find out the truth about him no matter what it will take.

The mysterious Zach makes another appearance and some of the mystery about him is revealed. I liked the relationship between Zach and Cammie. I really like the relationship between Cammie, Bex, Macey and Liz. Each of them has strengths and foibles too. Cammie's voice is perfect for this story and I love her PRO and CON lists which range from teenage trivial to life-altering. 

Fans of the Gallagher girls won't want to miss this one and will be eager for the next. 

Favorite Quote:
I didn't have a clue what my official title was or should be. International terrorist target? Teenage girl? Spy in training? Person who really, really wants to know what is going on?
I bought this one for my Kindle. You can buy your copy here.
