Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it's really a school for spies. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real "pavement artist"-but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she's on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.
(Summary from Goodreads)


I think this book is amazing. The title maybe a little violent but trust me, there is absolutely nothing violent about this great book. The story is a good combination of romance and action suitable enough for young readers. I love how she is really asking the help of her friend because she is totally clueless on things outside the academy. This book is the kind of book which makes you linger in a page for a long time, making you absorb everything you are reading. The book itself is exciting and leaves you at the edges of your seats and when you think you're on the right track, you turn for a very unexpected twist. This is not a very predictable book and I find that most exciting in books. I recommend this book for girls who are looking for a good laugh and a bit of romance in life. This book is absolutely kid-friendly and does not have too much big words so you can easily understand what you are reading and what's going on in the story. This book is generally for 10-12 year olds but everyone can enjoy this superb bestseller.
