Book Description

17 Jun 2014 Gallagher Girls (Book 1)

Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses - but it's really a school for spies. Cammie Morgan is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.

Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through a mall without his ever being the wiser, but can Cammie have a normal relationship with a boy who can never know the truth about her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 14 Oct 2006
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

This is my Mother amazon account but she allowed me to write my review .
My name is Sophie Emmerson and I'am twelve years old .
When my Mother and I went into whsmiths I found this book and I wasn't sure but then I read the blurb and I fell in love with the idea of it being a boarding school for spies !
I have read all the Gallagher girls books and they are without a doubt incredible I will tell you now that when you start you can't stop !!
This first one is about meeting the characters and getting into the spy world and the book is written in cammie's perspective . To the outside world the Gallagher academy is a school for exceptional young women but dig deeper and you will find there is more than meets the eye inside the Gallagher academy .
This first book is very low key compared to the rest .
As it says on the blurb '' cammie's is about face her hardest mission yet falling in love !"
But like any relationship it has it's consequences as you will read / or have read its a large consequence !!
I'll say no more but if you haven't read it you should and if you have already I hope you liked it !!

2.0 out of 5 stars Um....yeah... 6 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Ok, so a LOT of people have raved about this series, and I mean a LOT. So I thought, ok, why not give it a go? I'm not what I was expecting, but it definitely wasn't this. I was disappointed, I couldn't lose myself in the book at all, I didn't connect with any of the characters, and when I finished the book I wasn't left feeling 'Yeah! I can't wait to read more!'. Instead I was left feeling 'Well, I don't see why this book is so popular'. The trouble is, the idea was all there. An exclusive school for teenage spies? That could've been great! Sadly, I found the book repetitive (the same thoughts and phrases repeated all the way through) and Cammie, the heroine boring and whiney. Perhaps the other books in the series are better? I may read them and find out.
