Publisher Comments:

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class.  The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but its really a school for spies. 
 
Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks shes an ordinary girl.  Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”—but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her? 

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, shes on her most dangerous mission—falling in love.

Synopsis:

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns–and the heroines who use them all

Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to it–without calling too much attention to themselves.

Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

Okay, I read book 3 a few years ago. I just now went back to read book one. All I can say is why did I wait so long? Seriously, book one was just as much fun and just as funny as book 3. I love Cammie! This is one of those books where I wish the characters were real, I'd love to hang out with the girls and learn some spy moves.


Macey is a hoot! I love her character so much! I think that the GA would be an awesome place to walk around in, right up there with Hogwarts! I am glad that all the books are out now so I don't have to wait for them to be published.


The dialog is the best part. I love how Cammie is always on her toes and her quips are pure genius. If you haven't yet read this series, I would strongly recommend this series. It's a lot of fun and super funny. You will love the girls and the school. Pick up a copy today!

I give this book four stars because throughout the book I wasn't all that engaged. I did not like the ending very much and was a bit confusing.
