My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Cammie attends Gallagher Academy, a hoity toity private girls’ school in Virginia, whose students are scorned by the locals for snobby elitism. Little do the locals know, Gallagher trains tween and teen girls to follow in a long line of elite secret agents working around the world. Did you know Lincoln survived a previous assassination attempt? That’s because it was foiled by the original Gallagher Girl.
This book is the first in a series of 5 (so far) Gallagher Girls novels and they serve their purpose: quick, easy, fun chick-lit with female leads who can scale 12′ walls and engineer spy cams in basic accessories. In this outing, Cammie creates an “independent study” project for her covert ops class: dating a local boy! Through her adventures she learns lessons about friendship, espionage and the meaning of family.
