Publisher Comments:

After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world . . . for spies.
 
Cammie may have a genius I.Q., but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?
 
Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests--code name: Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top secret status at risk.
 
Soon, Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart--and her beloved school--are higher than ever.

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You," Carter delivers more spy-girl intrigue and romance, as trouble crops up once again for Cammie Morgan, a CIA legacy-student at Gallagher Academy, the world's premier academy for spies.

Synopsis:

After the excitement of the fall, all Cammie Morgan wants is peaceful semester at school. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world...for spies.

Despite Cammie's best intentions, trouble crops up quickly. Cammie, Bex, and Liz learn that the Gallagher Academy is hosting guests from another spy school — a school that is known to the world as the Ethan Frome Academy--a secret spy school for boys. After her fiasco with Josh last fall, Cammie isn't sure she's ready for daily encounters with boy spies - especially after she meets Zach — an incorrigibe cutie who everyone thinks is just perfect.

Cammie is right to be worried about their new guests. Soon after the boys' arrival, she's blamed for a series of security breaches that leave the school's top-secret status at risk. And the perfectly crushable Zach is her prime suspect.

The Gallagher Girls will need to use all their skills to investigate the Frome Boys. Even though they're confident about their guy-spying (as if they haven't done it before ), the playing field is level this time, and the stakes for Cammie's heart-and her beloved school- are higher than ever.

Cross my heart and hope to spy by Ally Carter

Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews


Cammie Morgan is back, and it's clear that her life hasn't calmed down since the events of I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You. At first, giddy anticipation is in the air. Gallagher Academy, Cammie's elite spy school, is hosting a visit from a covert training center for boys. Soon after the boys' arrival, though, everything goes dangerously awry when a series of security breaches are discovered at the academy. Worse yet, teenage agent-in-training Cammie is being blamed for the penetration. With the school's top-secret status at risk, the Gallagher Girls have to work quickly to save their beloved school. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)


Just like the first book, this one was action-packed and also was full of laughs. This isn't a series I read in public due to the hilarity, I would end up disrupting those around me by bursting into laughter all the time.


We meet some new characters in this one. Zach is from Blackthorn the spy school for boys. I loved how unsettling he can be. I really felt bad for Cammie when she first meets him, without spoiling anything it was a lot of fun.


Liz, Bex and Macey are back with Cam in the same fun way that they were in the first book. (As well as the 3rd.) Cam's mom drove me nuts though. I really wanted her to answer some of Cam's questions. There is one big question I really want to know the answer to, but I have a feeling it will not be answered until the last book.


The characters were developed a lot more in this one then they were in the first one. The dialog was just as good though, I have no idea how Carter can come up with all the jokes she does, she must laugh all the time while writing her books. I love being able to pick up the GG books knowing that I'm in for a fun and funny read.


These books are good for all ages, from 10 year olds up. I'm in my late 20's and this is one of my favorite series. If you have not met Cammie and the gang yet, you should pick up a copy and met them today you will be glad you did!
