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 the 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 kidnappers' 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 the Gallagher Girls 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.

I like that we get to so more of Macey in this book and get to know her better. She's a awesome and funny character. I also really like Preston. I'm a total Pracey shipper.

And Cammie is, of course, still one of my favorite characters. She's still strong and smart and a really awesome spy.

I love Zach in this book (well, to be honest I love him in all the books). I like how he jest pops out of nowhere. Like I said before we don't see a lot of Zach in the book, he's probably is in, like, five or six scenes, but he's still as cool as ever.

I also really like Abby, Cammie's aunt. She's such a cool person and a really awesome spy.

I really like the part when Zach and Cammie were hiding on the train, and when Cammie runs into Zach and judo flipped him, and just like every GG book there are some really awesome quotes, I also like the ending.

I love this book. It's funny and just awesome! I definitely recommend it.

The third book featuring Cammie and the other Gallagher Girls was not much better than the other two. Cammie goes to Boston at the end of the summer to hang out with Macey. They get attacked. La-de-da. Again, lots of plot holes, not to say it's a bad book of course. Just compare it to potato chips rather than a meal. Slightly stale potato chips. If you're just dying to know what happens next, read it, but if you're not exactly sure? Don't. Another shallow-and-not-very-good-but-it-could-have-been book from author Ally Carter.

It was amazing. Just like all of the Gallagher Books. Suspense, Mystery, and a touch of Romance makes this book (and the series) worth reading. Check out Ally Carter's site (http://allycarter.com/) to update yourself with the Gallagher Series info. :))

Cammie Morgan is visiting  roommate Macey McHenry in Boston before they head back to Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies for a new school year.  It's a very exciting time for the McHenry's as Mr. McHenry has just accepted a spot as Vice-President on the ticket for the fall election.  Trouble is never far behind for these Gallagher Girls and an attack results in increased Secret Security presence at school, with Cammie's Aunt Abby in the forefront.  A former Gallagher Girl herself, she understands the secrecy behind the school's gates.

WOW! What can I say? Ally Carter once again writes a fascinating story continuing the Gallagher Girls story! I found myself reading straight through, unable to put it down! With each book, the series just gets better and better!

Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover is very well written, and in this book you see the girls and others grow more and more. Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover is action packed, and leaves you questioning the true intent of characters.

This is DEFINATELY a must read that leaves readers impatiently waiting for Book 4!

I swear, this series gets better and better. So I definitely wasn't disappointed with Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover.

The plot gets more interesting and it definitely has more action. I mean, a kidnapping attempt on the daughter of the governor, soon-to-be, VP of the US? Yea, action packed novel for sure. And not only is there an kidnapping attempt, who are the people behind it? And who exactly are they trying to kidnap?

The characters are definitely more well-defined. Cammie seems to be a lot more mature in this novel and her relationship with Zach is more confusing as ever which only adds an element of mystery and suspense to Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover. Cammie's best friends are, as always, her loyal sidekicks. So they're always a refreshing element to the plot especially with their obvious different activities and specialties.

The writing style is also a lot more flowing. There's definitely not as many parenthesis (I'm really against it, if you couldn't tell. So against it that in fact, I use them too! :) and if there were, it didn't bother me as much.

My favorite part is probably the disguises. I mean, you get to read about Cammie dressing up as a hooker! How amazing is that? It's totally entertaining and hilarious. Plus, you get a lot of advice in spy stuff too which is always helpful. :)

The ending is kind of a cliff hanger but then again, it shows that there's a definite continuation. If there isn't...I'm gonna sue! Hahaha.



Overall, I can't wait for the next installment of the series!
