Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Only the Good Spy Young (Gallagher Girls)Cammie had always thought that attending a spy school was a little fun. But now that Cammie is in constant danger from the threat of an ancient terrorist organization intent on bringing the Gallagher girls down, everything is different. Ramped up security measures at school seem to have taken the very spirit out of these proud buildings. There will be no more discovering secret passageways or sneaking out now that Cammie’s life—and all those around her—are at stake. All that Cammie wants is the truth, but when you don’t know who to trust, the truth is hard to come by. In the end, when all other options have been exhausted, will Cammie have to find all the answers on her own?

Only the Good Spy Young, the fourth and I hope not final installment in Carter’s Gallagher Girls series is by far the best one yet. Like Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover, this novel has much more spy danger than girly romance. Readers are thrust into a more sinister world of double agents and harsh betrayals as Cammie tries to navigate her worsening situation. Gone are the days of sneaking around town tailing unsuspecting boys, and even though some readers may miss them, most will enjoy this new turn of events even more. The plot and action are superbly written with many exciting twists and turns, and Cammie’s character continues to grow realistically. Her fear over what will happen to her and her determination to find out the truth show her to be strong and brave. I was absolutely thrilled by Only the Good Spy Young and I cannot wait for the next book in the Gallagher Girl series.

Fans of earlier installments in the Gallagher Girl series will not want to miss this latest one, nor will those who enjoyed the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz and Model Spy by Shannon Greenland.

Rating: 4.5
