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 they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past
   My Review
Ever since laying my eyes upon the first book in the series I have been hooked and addicted. There is just so much to love about this series of books that it is hard to find something bad to say about them or to even begin hating them. Its everything that we as females admire and lust for, the books where the women are strong and yet are as girly as they ever need to be because they love there make ups and they love there teenage crushes on very cute looking boys, even if they do end up being baddies at the end of it all. Yes this series is indeed a fast packed moving lot, something that always has another reason for making you want to turn the page and read on, not wanting to put the book down for fear that you will miss something important. its the series of books that means you will always need and want the next one regardless of what is occuring because you find yourself holding your breath with the need to know what is occuring next. you dont just read the gallagher girls you see, you become a gallagher girl because you feel what it is that they are going through and you understand it. 

Yes the books are packed with adventure, crushes and normal teenage things. They have something within them that draws the reader in on a new level of adventure that somehow comes across as something that does actually occur on a day to day basis and is as real as you and I are. It seems to have this power of making you wish that it was real and like haryr potter where we were all wishing that we could be a witch or wizard, many of us young females, or even young adults, are now wishing that we could be a spy girl, doing all the things that cammie and her female friends seem to do. I think in many ways the author has worked hard to make cammie as realistic as she possibly could. She wanted her readers to clearly identify with the character and to understand all the reasons and actions behind the things that she does. I think this is why the pages are so addictive because you can see the work and the passion and care that has gone into making the book as detailed as possible without it becoming overdone and boring.

Though the books do have the negatives of them being somewhat predictable in places and a little repetitive in other places, they are still very well done to a level that I would actually rank them amongst the others on my shelf that I would read over and over again. The whole scenery of the novel just really seems to have a life of its own so that it becomes a scene within your mind helping you to identify and relate with the story more than you perhaps would have done otherwise. Cammie is a wonderful character that I have grown to admirem, however you can not help but find that your heart is torn between her friends and her family as well. Her aunt abby is surely the aunt that we all wish we had. Laid back, cool and a little bit fun around the edges. Yes shes the ideal aunt in everyones minds because she does what she needs to do without over doing it to much. I do feel that the series is reaching its end now though and that is kind of a sad factor to take in because you dont want it to end.

More secrets though were revealed within this novel that has left you thinking and its obvious that it is coming to its closing climax. Either her father is or isnt alive and something is going on with Joe soloman that he is now being protected by M16 who were the ones at the very beginning of the novel, after him and wanting him captured within there grips. Yes a lot of the plot was unveiled at the end of the book and yet you can see that it was merely the beginning of what was to come. I do feel that this book deserves every one of the five stars that I am about to give it. its just the sort of book that has me hooked that has me counting down the hours and minutes of when I can read again so that I can find out what is to play out next. a series I advise all young adults and females to read if you get the chance.

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing
