When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.

Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.

The Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth.as they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the
I never buy books mid-series. If I don't have the first one I get thefollowing  books from the library because I like my collection to be equal and organized. (That's about the only thing organazied in my life). But when the 4th Gallagher Girl book came out, I simply had no choice but to purchase a copy. Every copy of Only the Good spy Young was either out or on hold with a waitlist of fifty people in every library within sixty miles of my house. So I surendered to my craving of this novel and bought a copy.

Upon opening the pretty pink cover, Ally carter waste's no time starting her novel with action - and a certain bad boy. When a rouge spy is revealed, Cammie's life is thrown even more around and the sudden truths are giving her whiplash. No longer the "cameleon", Cammie must learn to step from her comforting covers to her newfound place in the spotlight. In this new installment Cammie and her friends learn more than they ever could imagine about trust, faith, and the truth.

Darker than it's predessesors, Only the good Spy Young shows our favorite characters in new lights. Relationships are put to the test and also grow stronger than ever before. Cammie herself grows dramatically in the novel, no longer the seemingly sweet school girl, Cammie steps into her new role of determinded spy with as much grace and expertise as any Gallagher girl can. Though the usual funny wit and humor are more subdued in this novel, they are still there, as is our favorite mysterious spy boy - Zach.

Yes, Zach. He's back, just when we all want him the most! His relationship with Cammie in this novel was my favorite out of all of them. His true feeling for our heroine shine through much brighter than any of the other novels and we also get to learn more about his past - and unsettling present.

Although this novel was not my absolute favorite in the series, that didn't stop me from reading this book cover to cover into the wee hours of the morning. And with that I can say, please Ally, give me more!
