    Out of Sight, Out of Time – Ally Carter

    “‘Where am I?’ I heard the words, but I wasn’t sure I’d said them. The voice was rough, too coarse to be mine. It was as if there were a stranger in my skin, lying in the dark, saying, ‘Who’s there?’ ‘So it’s English is it?’  As soon as the young woman moved to stand at the end of the bed, I could see that she was beautiful. She had an Irish accent and strawberry blonde hair in a shade that could never be anything but natural.”  When Cammie wakes up in a strange room, surrounded by strangers, she has no clue how she got there. Things soon get even…

    Only the Good Spy Young – Ally Carter

    *** Please Note that this book is the fourth in the Gallagher Girls series and whilst I have taken every care not to include spoilers, there may be some present for the first three books. *** “‘Targets acquired, ten o’clock.’ My best friend’s voice was as cool as the wind as it blew off the thames.

I could see the night getting darker – the lights grow brighter – and my best friend’s confidence was almost contagious.

    Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover – Ally Carter

    *** Please Note that this book is the third in the Gallagher Girls series and whilst I have taken every care not to include spoilers, there may be some present for the first two books. ***“‘We’re moving.’ The man beside me spoke into the microphone in his sleeve, and I knew the words weren’t for me.  The August air was hot and thick with the smell of sea salt and bus exhaust. The roads were packed for miles, and everywhere I looked I saw shades of red, white and blue. Everywhere I turned, I felt the eyes of trained professionals staring, seeing, recording every word, analysing every glance within a…

    Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy – Ally Carter

    ***Whilst I have taken great care not to spoil any of the story in this review please take note that this is book 2 of the Gallagher Girls series so therefore may contain a few spoilers for book 1.*** “’Just be yourself,’ my mother said, as if that were easy. Which it isn’t. Ever. Especially not when you’re fifteen and don’t know what language you’re going to have to speak at lunch, or what name you’ll have to use next time you do a ‘project’ for extra credit marks. Not when your nickname is ‘the Chameleon.’ Not when you go to a school for spies.” Cammie has just gone through…

This translates to her being a a spy in training… or in other words, a Gallagher Girl. Nicknamed the Chameleon because of her impeccable skills at going unnoticed on missions, she’s not shocked when her two friends are seen but she’s not during a practical operation for her class; or at least shes not seen by…
