Review of Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover Ally Carter
Are there really schools out there that teach you espionage? If so, where can I apply? The whole idea behind Gallegher Academy is amazing. It is a boarding school that teaches young women how to be the deadliest spies in the world. Sure it would suck not having boys at your school, but I think I'd get over it after learning how to decapitate a man with a nail file. (Ok yuck, I could never do that...I'd make a horrible spy.)
In this third novel of the series we get to see a little bit more of Macey. I loved seeing this different side of Macey. We've seen the stuck up rich girl side, and now it's nice to see the sweet vulnerable side of her too. Don't worry Cammy, Bex and Liz are intigral to the story line too.
The girls have little adventures and episodes throughout the novel but the ending is explosive. You won't see it coming (well maybe you will, but I didn't...jeez I'm really killing my spy girl career here). With kick butt spy girls, secret societies and a presidential election you won't be disappointed.
