Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Publisher: Disney*Hyperion
Pages: 265Series or Stand Alone: Book Four in the Gallagher Girls series
Summary: When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.
Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.
In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.

Since coming off of escaping a kidnapping attempt from a historical terrorist organization, Cammie Morgan has been spending her time in England with Bex and her superspy parents. A second attempt in London makes Cammie realize just how serious the danger around her is--and reveals someone that Cammie trusts to be a double agent working for the Circle. While everyone back at Gallagher Academy is tightening security around her, Cammie isn’t sure about the revealed double agent and must go off in search of answers she may not be prepared for.
This Gallagher Girl book certainly opened with a bang. A person Cammie trusts is revealed to be a double agent, working with the Circle towards Cammie’s capture. I always find it better to jump start these books with a big action sequence, especially one with known characters. This particular one created major trust issues and doubts for the rest of the novel. While there are always secrets in the Gallagher Girls books, I felt like this situation took it to a new, darker level.
I was happy that Zach was a bigger player in this one. I enjoyed hearing more about his past history. It was beginning to feel like the relationship between the two was becoming repetitive; I’m glad the new information kind of strengthened the relationship’s story.
Plus one for mystery! Cammie and her friends have to determine whether the double agent is actually a TRIPLE agent. Only the Good Spy Young is another good addition to Ally Carter’s series with a slight cliffhanger ending that will certainly drive people to read the fifth installment!

Rating: 4 - good!
