Review of Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter
Author: Ally Carter
Published by: Hyperion Book CH
Summary from Goodreads: When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her. Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. 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.
I always thought being a spy would be cool, however, after reading Only the Good Spy Young and hearing about Cammie getting chased by The Circle I think my mundane life is pretty great...at least people don't want to kill me.
Cammie, Bex, Macy and Liz have a mission. They need to find out who in The Circle is after Cammie and why. They are deceived, lied to and most of all underestimated...not a smart thing to do when you're working with teenage super spies. I really related to Cammie throughout the entire novel. She was confused and didn't know who to believe or trust. It doesn't help that Zach kept popping in and out of her life so much. That darn boy...it really helps that he's smoking hot though. I'd forgive him too.
This is an action packed novel with surprises and betrayal around every corner. At times I was laughing and other times gasping out-loud and "Oh no you didn't"-ing. This is a really cute series and definitely one to add to your TBR pile.
