Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication date: 2008
Pages: 288
Series: Gallagher Girls, Book 3

Summary from goodreads:
When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them. As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe? Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth.
Things I Liked:
I loved that this is where we start delving into the more serious aspects of Cammie’s life as a teen spy. It’s neat that as Cammie matures, the content matures a bit as well. But Carter still keeps Cammie’s humor and matter-of-fact personality intact, so this doesn’t become a major tense spy novel.

Things I Didn't Like:
It’s a good thing all of the series is out now, because you’re left hanging a bit. So make sure to get the next book ASAP.

A Karissa Review
If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I'm guessing if I ever get to these I'll struggle with the first ones. I'll enjoy the maturing.

    1. Yeah, probably. They are a lot more fluff in the beginning, but they are all super short, so you could probably sit down with all of them and pound them out in a few days.


Love it when you comment!
