Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover (Gallagher Girls, #3)
Roseville, Virginia (United States)
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....
I am so glad that I decided to contine with this series and to read on, because it seems to me that as the series progresses, it becomes stronger, better, more advanced with drama and adrenaline. I love the way that the author develops her sense of mystery when it comes to the characters within her book, because it means you are left never really know what has occured, why, how, when or what. your left just pondering on and on, turning the page over and over again. There just seemed to be a whole lot more going for this book than there was with the other ones adn I think that is why I am now starting to get on with the series, because the story is developing so much more. Cam is still my favorite character, but I also like Liz because I love the fact that she reminds me of Hermione from harry potter, how shes a book worm, but has all the common sense for the plans as well. It does seem like the characters are based off of those within the ahrry potter series, but at the same time you can see that there is a world altogether different too, a world that juset isnt the same because there is a different set of adventures here. Do I think the sseries could make it to seven in total, no probably not. very few books can do that, and when you find a series that can you know its somewhat amazing because it has yet to get boring.
I love the fact that despite finishing the book, you are still left with this huge sense of mystery, wondering what has occured, why and how. there is obviously and clearly so much more to learn about the characters within the novel, and yes, that is something that is bound to keep the reader going because you do want to learn about them, like cams mother for instance, or zach, or macy. there is just something between the lines that has you wanting and wishing you could jump in so you could read on further without this need to have to wait for the actual next book to be in your hands. Yes, in my words this is a series that I would promote to anyone if they have patience for it to get better. Its a young adult novel clearly meant for the young teens, but at the same time I myself as an adult appreciate it, and I think that many others will as well. she is just an amazing talented author and I would love to see more books written by her in the future.
