Book Review: Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication date: 2010
Pages: 288
Series: Gallagher Girls, Book 4

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. In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth.as they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.
Things I Liked:
Again, I loved that Cammie’s life, and the conspiracies in her family’s past are prominent here. But I also loved that above all, the book is about friendships and relationships – and how tenuous they are as a teen spy. That theme appeals to everyone – even those of us not lucky enough to be in the CIA. Again, we have lots of action, lots of twists, but Carter still keeps Cammie’s humor and matter-of-fact personality intact, so this doesn’t become a major tense spy novel. And again, the writing, subject matter, and perspective on life are all maturing as both the characters and readers mature.

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