Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter - Review

The Gallagher Girls are back and better than ever in their fourth adventure. They are older, a little battle-worn, but every bit as much fun.

Picture the scene: best friends on vacation skating on the moat around the Tower of London. Idyllic. But these are Gallagher Girls and one of them is being chased by an ancient terrorist organization. So even though there are operatives everywhere she looks (and she looks), even though her friend’s parents are two of the best spies she knows (and she has high expectations), she is pulled onto a bridge by someone she no longer knows whether to trust, told to follow the pigeons, and her world begins to unravel.

All this leads to Ally Carter’s best adventure to date, full of suspected double agents, back story, daring exploits, covert ops, and even a little romance (yes, Zach is back- but can he be trusted?). You learn a lot more about Cammie’s background, much about the strength and tenacity of the Gallagher Girls, and the power of friendship.

If you can’t tell, I adore Ally Carter and the Gallagher Girls. She can’t write quickly enough for me - especially after an ending like that!

This is one of my favorite series. And I want it to be a movie.
