This book is hilarious. I loved reading about all of the spy gadgets that the Gallagher Girls have, and what goes on in Gallagher Academy! I’ve always loved books and movies about spies and assassins, and this book is exactly what I was looking for! The girls of the Academy study different kinds of subjects – all spy-related, of course – and they have to speak a different language at lunch every day. Each girl speaks over thirteen different languages, and can take down a fully grown man (probably).
The book focuses on Cammie Morgan, the headmistress’s daughter, as she decides that she wants to get to know Josh – an ordinary townie – better. This is obviously a big no-no, and could jeopardise both Cammie and the school’s cover. But, she goes along with it anyway!
I loved Cammie, although we don’t really get to see that much of her own personality, as she is constantly surrounded by her group of friends and/or Josh and/or teachers. There are other books in this series (I don’t think it’s ended yet, right?) and so I hope to see more of her character as the series progresses.
I loved this book, and thought it was such a fun, and light read – I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something that will make you laugh!
