"Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy"
Author: Ally Carter
Source: Library
Rating: 5 stars
After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world...for spies.Cammie may have a genius IQ , but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her best friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests--code name: "Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top-secret status at risk. Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart--and her beloved school--are higher than ever.

     Ally Carter definatly did the job on this one! I thought I loved the first one but this one is way better! Lots of girl power in here and teenage 'issues' that girls in particular can relate to. It started off very strong, but at chapter 8 or so...that's where I was hooked. As soon as one of the boys started appearing in the story (always around Cammie) I enjoyed the book more. Because it started getting interesting as the story progressed. Cammie is so likable and Zach is one of those boys that appear often in movie scenes (which I didn't mind at all). There were even parts that made me laugh (which is pretty hard :D)But sadly when I got to the end I was disappointed....that the book had to end! I can't wait to read the next one! I LOVED this book soo much! I STRONGLY recommend this book to anyone who might be interested in a.) love story b.) spy's and c.) action. I give this book:
