Goodreads synopsis: The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women lives up to its name. Not only does this exclusive boarding school teach advanced language skills and correct deportment; its students also master the arts of tapping phones, hacking into computers, and spying in public places. At school, second-generation Gallagher Girl Cammie Morgan has impeccable credentials: She is fluent in 14 languages and able to kill an assailant in seven different ways. But recently life has dealt Cammie a card that she never anticipated: She has fallen in love with an ordinary boy who knows nothing about her exotic double life. A truly covert romance.
My thoughts: I had such high hopes for this. First of all, the author is an OK native and went to my alma mater. Second, it’s a novel with teen girl spies. How can it be bad?
It wasn’t bad. It just didn’t hold up to the level of great I was hoping for. I’m a little bummed by that. The characters had such potential to be amazing, but they fell sort of flat. The plot was okay, too, but again, didn’t bring the level of awesome I hoped for.
I will be reading the next in the series, I’m sure. I just don’t see myself pre-ordering any of these or jumping in line to get them. Maybe you’d like them better, though. Has anyone read her Heist Society stuff?
