Review: Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover (Gallagher Girl # 3) by Ally Carter

Summary:When Cammie "the Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept a nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnapper's dangerous plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did.

Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can they keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth...

Review: Ally Carter does it again. Can someone please explain to me how an author can write four previous books and not disappoint at all? Ms. Carter's writing style, characters and plot are just as wonderful and engaging as the previous two books in the series!

The plot with a touch of danger and a lot of mystery and a sprinkle of romance, is well written and flows perfectly. There was research brought into this book as well as heart and soul.

Cammie was once again a great protagonist. She's strong, intelligent, and independent. But she's also vulnerable and I liked that in this book. With so much danger, even with a spy, there so much a 16-year-old can take. In the other books, we never really see the sad, angry, hurt side of Cammie. In this book, we see it all. The other characters were just as wonderful and I loved the appearance of some of them in particular.

With another great book, Ally Carter skillfully writes the story of a girl growing up to be a spy, but more importantly, a young lady. She shows the importance of family and a safe place to be, and just how powerful belonging to a place is.

Grade: Go to fullsize image I loved it!

Cover: A+, This one follows the same context as the other books: Cammie, not seeing the model's face, Gallagher Academy Uniform. I love that it's red, blue, and white because Macey's dad is running for VP!

Overall: A great read. If you've read the first too, read this one. Other wise, GO AND CHECK OUT THIS SERIES!
