In this third installment of the Gallagher Girls series, Cammie Morgan is back with her friends and about to start junior year in the private spy school, Gallagher Academy. Before going back to school, Cammie decides to visit her friend, Macey, on the campaign trail with her father who is running for Vice President of the United States. When they are unexpectedly attacked by skilled kidnappers, Cammie realizes how much danger her friend is in and worries about keeping her safe. Abigail Cameron, Cammie’s aunt, is brought to the Gallagher school in order to protect Macey and keep anyone out who might blow the academy’s cover of being a snooty prep school for wealthy girls. Meanwhile, Cammie can’t help but think about Zach, who left her at the end of the last book to go back to his spy school, Blackthorne. She feels like he is always on her mind for no apparent reason. Is she paranoid or a very perceptive spy? Can the Gallagher Girls manage to keep Macey safe during this crazy and very public election time?
This series is a lot of fun and many students eagerly awaited this third installment. They were not disappointed in the quality of the story. The election added an interesting new spin on the girls’ spy training because they were actually in real danger many times during the course of events and had to act as real spies would act in order to create new and adventurous plans to protect themselves. The characters are just as interesting as ever and the story kept a brisk pace. The only complaint I heard was that it went by too quickly. All in all, a fun ride.
