When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth.


This review contains spoilers if you haven't read the first two books in this series. 

My Review:
This is a great addition to the Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter. The main focus is no longer on Cammie, but we are still told a great story through her eyes.

It's all about Macey. Who is she really? It has only been one year since she started at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women and she is already a brilliant spy. We finally get to know Macey. She isn't just the boy decoding, rich girl. She can switch back and forth between the new spy Macey and the old snippy Macey in a blink of an eye. She is truly exceptional. So, is that why people are after her?  You will have to read to find out....

The big question everyone is probably asking is, "Does Zach make an appearance?" I'll get to that, but isn't he so swoon worthy? I sure think so. I mean, who didn't think it was cute when he pointed to himself and said, "Spy," every time Cammie asked him a question about how he knew something.  But, the answer is he is often mentioned by Cammie. She thinks he is following her, or at least hiding around every corner out of sight.

This was a great book! I don't think I will ever get tired of these spies. Let's just hope no one gets hurt....

Oh, before I finish this review, I want to share my favorite line from this book. You ready for it? Here it is...."And that's how a chameleon was saved by a peacock."
