Description-

  • Step into Cammie Morgan's world of intrigue in the first book of the beloved New York Times bestselling Gallagher Girls series
    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 it's 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 she's 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, she's on her most dangerous mission — falling in love.

Ally lives in Oklahoma where she is hard at work on her next novel.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books dAcRiTiC - I really like this book, but once you get to the third one, you just get SO bored of it. Cammie's like,"I can't keep going because my dad died! Oh Zach, what's going on! Joe Solomon is OH-SO great!" Wouldn't you get bored of that being said 50 times each word per book? And besides, they aren't really that adventurous. More like mystery. But the movie is a completely different story. It was AWESOME! Overall, I'd give THIS book a 4/5 stars!

    Set in a spy school for girls, this entertaining novel centers on 15-year-old Cammie, the headmistress's daughter, who must decide if she is cut out for a life of secrets. Though the plot takes a while to unfold, fun details and characters will keep readers engaged (Cammie and her friends speak 14 languages, take classes in Covert Operations, can rappel down buildings and plant tracking devices). But when Cammie, known as the Chameleon for her ability to disappear in public places, is spotted by a cute boy named Josh in the middle of the town fair, she begins a new mission: learning to be an ordinary girlfriend ("All these years I'd thought being a spy was challenging. Turns out, being a girl is the tricky part"). Cammie soon leads a double life, and must decide which one is right for her. Readers may find some details familiar (Cammie lost her spy father during a mission; her CoveOps teacher is a handsome, intense man who seems to get along too well with her mother) and wish that rich, bratty Macey, a new recruit who is "capable of cracking the Y chromosome code," had been developed more fully. But the author escalates the tension well, leading to the night of the final exam, where Cammie finds herself blindfolded, kidnapped and facing off against the retired spies of the faculty—and also confronting Josh. Readers will eagerly anticipate the next installment. Ages 12-up.

    Gr 7-10 -Cammie Morgan, 15, is a student at Gallagher Academy, a top-secret boarding school for girls who are spies-in-training. She studies covert operations, culture and assimilation, and advanced encryption, and has learned to speak 14 languages. Her troubles begin when she falls for Josh, a local boy who has no clue about her real identity. Keeping her training secret forces her to lie to her new love, which leads to comic complications. Subplots include Cammie -s relationship with her mother -the headmistress at Gallagher -and her grief over the loss of her father, who died while on a spying assignment. The teen -s double life leads to some amusing one-liners, and the invented history of the Gallagher Girls is also entertaining, but the story is short on suspense. The stakes never seem very high since there are no real villains, and the cutesy dialogue quickly becomes grating. However, the novel has been optioned for a film and will likely attract readers who enjoy lighthearted, frothy tales and squeaky-clean romances. Unfortunately, it lacks the warmth and appeal of other teen books turned into movies, such as Meg Cabot -s "The Princess Diaries" (HarperCollins, 2000) and Ann Brashares -s "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (Delacorte, 2001)." -Miranda Doyle, San Francisco Public Library"
