Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy by Ally Carter
Before returning to her school, the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, for spring semester, Cammie Morgan stops at CIA headquarters for interrogation. The agents question her about Josh, her ex-boyfriend, referred to as the “Subject.” Since Cammie’s school is a training ground for spies, with a cover story of being an exclusive boarding school for rich, snobby girls, the agents want to be sure Cammie and the school have not been compromised. After the semester starts, Cammie and her roommates overhear her mother telling the Covert Operations teacher something mysterious. The girls learn that boys from Blackthorne Institute, a training school for boy spies, will be going to school with them for spring semester. How they move from competing with each other to carrying out a cooperative mission becomes a real challenge, complete with suspicious behavior from many sources. This is the second book in the Gallagher Girls series, with humor and action aplenty! I am especially enjoying getting to know all the characters and look forward to seeing what happens in the next three books in the series.
