DON'T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER is the third novel in the Gallagher Girl spy series.
Cammie is invited to Boston over summer break to join Macey and her family for a political convention where Macey's father is to accept the Vice President's candidacy. Both girls are excited for a fun time.
What they didn't bargain for was a kidnapping attempt. On first appearance, the kidnappers seem to be after Preston, the son of the Presidential candidate. But after replaying the attack in her mind, Cammie is positive it was Macey they were after.
After the kidnapping attempt, they return to school and Macey is put under tighter Secret Service protection. But due to the secretive nature of the Gallagher Academy, the agents selected have to be carefully screened. Cammie is thoroughly shocked when the head of the detail shows up and it's none other than Aunt Abby.
Cammie hasn't seen Abby since her father died, and has so many questions for her. But there are other things that need answered, as well. Namely, why would anyone want to kidnap Macey? So begins junior year for Cammie and her close friends Macey, Liz, and Bex.
When Macey has to attend campaign functions, the other girls find cunning ways to sneak out and accompany her. To confuse Cammie even more, she encounters Zach from the previous term at not just one, but multiple locations. What is up with that?
As with the previous books in the series, DON'T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER has much intrigue and spy technology throughout. Ms. Carter suspects that there may be up to six books in the Gallagher Girl series, and DON'T JUDGE A GIRL BY HER COVER does a lot of development for future installments. There is a lot of action and bruising that occurs in this story, but more than anything it sets up a lot of background information for forthcoming novels.
