[REVIEW] ‘Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy’ (Gallagher Girls #2) By: Ally Carter

**This is part of a series! It might contain spoilers for the previous book!**

Official Synopsis:

Cammie Morgan is back, and it’s clear that her life hasn’t calmed down since the events of I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You. At first, giddy anticipation is in the air. Gallagher Academy, Cammie’s elite spy school, is hosting a visit from a covert training center for boys. Soon after the boys’ arrival, though, everything goes dangerously awry when a series of security breaches are discovered at the academy. Worse yet, teenage agent-in-training Cammie is being blamed for the penetration. With the school’s top-secret status at risk, the Gallagher Girls have to work quickly to save their beloved school.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars


This was an amazing sequel to “I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have To Kill You!” I loved getting to see Cammie and her friends again, and it’s cool to see how the stakes keep getting raised, especially with the addition of new characters.

The timeline feels weird, since everything supposedly happens throughout an entire semester. It really feels like everything happens within a few weeks, not months, so that sort of threw me off.

I loved Zach ever since we first met him. I almost had to put the book down, I loved the elevator scene so much! (You know what I mean, we’ve all been there!) I was right there with Cammie, trying to decide whether or not to trust him. I would’ve liked a little bit more character development with him, but I imagine that I’ll see it in the next books, along with more information on the Blackthorne Boys. I don’t know why the girls were so surprised that there was an all boys school just like (or at least similar to) theirs–after all, they have a lot of Professors/teachers who are former male spies, and chances are they went to a school to learn how to become spies, just like the girls are.

I was excited that we got to see some of Cammie’s old friends from Roseville, but I won’t go too much into that so that I don’t spoil anything! I hope that we get to see them together in the rest of the series.

Cammie has been having some great character development, which is easy to see since I just finished the first book and got my hands on the second one (and the third one, which I’ll be starting as soon as I finish writing this review!) that same day.

Overall, this was a great sequel, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
