5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 14 Oct 2006
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Welcome to The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, an all-girls school located just outside of Roseville, Virginia. Anyone looking at this elite private boarding school would see just what The Gallagher Academy wants you to see--a preppy school for privileged girls, complete with a guardhouse and stone wall to keep the curious away from their precious charges. And they'd be right, of course, and yet they would be so very, very wrong!

Because The Gallagher Academy isn't exactly what it appears to be. It's an elite school, that's for sure, and the only boys who grace its grounds are the male teachers. After that, though, the similarities between The Gallagher Academy and every other elite boarding school in the world ends. Instead of math and reading, English and horseback-riding, the girls who attend this school take courses in Covert Operations, Ancient Languages, Countries of the World, Culture and Assimilation, and Protection and Enforcement. The Gallagher Academy is, in a word, a school for spies.

Cammie Morgan is a second-generation Gallagher girl--her mother, who also attended the school, is now the headmistress. Her two best friends, Liz and Bex, are both super-smart, and the best spies-in-training she knows (except for Liz's lack of coordination, but that's another story). Cammie has spent most of her life inside the walls of The Gallagher Academy, and now that another semester is starting, complete with new CoveOps teacher, hunky Joe Solomon, she's really looking forward to the new school year.

But then things start to get a little out of control. Mr. Solomon seems to know all about Cammie's missing-and-presumed-dead father. She meets a boy in town, Josh, who finally sees her, really sees her, like no one else ever has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good 2 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot is really twisted and different from most spy books. From the mission reports to the everyday life, every bit of it is so different. I really enjoy it and would recommend highly that you read the whole series. Cammie will capture you and show you that being a spy happens in everyday life and even then it can shock you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fresh idea, just not my cup of tea 23 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
While I enjoyed reading something different to my comfort soon, I wouldn't say this book gripped me in any way. If I'm being honest, I think given its target audience I was never really going to connect 100% to the characters because I'm not a teenager anyone as much as I wish still was, and though they may not have acted like it all the time, there was moments when they were typical teenager girls. I was never a typical teenager girl worried about boys and make up so it's very unlikely I would have been able to connect to the books back then either. But this is not Ally Carter's fault.

Like I said, I enjoyed the thought of an exclusive spy school as it was different from the rest, but I've never really been into spy book or films, in fact I've never even watched the James Bond movies so while it was a change, it didn't leave me dying to read the next. For me, and you could think I'm completely wrong, but this book focused too much on a love story and not enough on the spy side to it. I think being the first in the series it would have been better to have the love interest maybe closer to the end if not in the second book once everyone has gotten used to the idea of the school. Instead we were introduced to the school, the teachers, learnt some of the history of the school and then Cammie meets Josh and it almost feels like everything else is forgotten.

As far as the character's go, I've already said I couldn't relate to most of them, but that doesn't mean they weren't likeable. I really liked Cammie's friends Bex and Liz. I loved how they were loyal and really protective of Cammie.

Maybe i'm biased as a reader reviewing the first book when i have read the whole series and LOVED IT! But honestly i cannot praise these books enough. I fall right into the category of the 'target audience' though never really felt like it was overly cheesy or that the romance came in too much.

You can relate to characters, laugh at them because this book isn't short of humor and i never predicted the outcome EVER. In the end, this book isn't about a normal girl, it's about a spy girl who thinks slightly differently, who is a SPY. I enjoyed reading the spy, information type stuff just as i enjoyed the 'girly' romance.
Honestly these books shaped my early teens years and if i don't say so myself i've turned out pretty amazing!!

By VICKERY
Format:Paperback
I thought this book was a very easy and gripping read as I read it within a few days. I found the undercover/secret life of the main character extremely interesting and it made me think about what I would think and do if this happened to me as I am the same age as the girls in the book. I love the themes mystery, secret and romance all jumbled up together and some of the scenarios are extremely relatable to, however I did feel that something was missing, maybe a bit more reality.
Overall I loved this book and continued to read the rest of the series, I have also already recommended it to friends.
