Things quickly go south when Macey is summoned to the hotel roof to shoot a PR piece with the presidential candidate's son. But instead of cameras, attackers descend from a helicopter and swarm the girls, commanding, "Grab her." After a narrow escape, Cammie and Macey find themselves at a top secret hideout owned by the Gallagher Academy. and thus begins Cammie's junior year at spy school.
Cammie doesn't need her genius IQ to see that the kidnapping attempt has changed everything, especially now that Macey is a major celebrity, and the school has been besieged by news crews. More disturbing, Cammie can't shake the suspicion that her mom and Mr. Solomon know more about the attack than they're letting on. After all, why weren't the attackers surprised to find themselves in combat with two teenage girls who handled themselves like seasoned pros?
But these suspicions won't stop Cammie from jumping at the chance to join Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. Before long, the girls are using their espionage skills at every turn, as Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth . . .
Fabulous! Absolutely, fabulous! I mean it's about a spy school, how much cooler can a book get? This book was very well written. It was definitely had more action and adventure than the previous books. The suspense built up much more rapidly, and the humor was still very there.
I adore the characters in these novels to no end. I love being in Cammie's head--she's strong and sarcastic, and also a fantastic spy. Throughout this novel, Cammie seems to gain more confidence, and you can always see the wheels turning. Liz has always been the braniac, but in this one she seemed much less vulnrable and stood her ground. Macey was, well, Macey, but you get to know her a lot better in this one.
As I mentioned earlier, this novel has a lot more action than the other books in this series. But, the downside to that is, there is very little romance, probably because the need for action overpowered it. So, while i really enjoyed the action, i was sort of missing the previous subplots of underlying romance.
With a kick and punch Ally Carter never seems to lack, Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover is a great book to just whizz through. The many plot twists kept you hanging on, and left you hungry for more. It leaves you with more questions than answers, which is both good and bad. I swear, this series just gets better and better.
This series would be fantastic for fans of Meg Cabot, the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson, and Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, all of which are hilarious and have kick-ass herioines/female main characters.
