Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover (Ally Carter)

Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover, by Ally Carter, is the third book of the Gallagher Girl series, and for now, the last. (I don't know if Ally is going to write a fourth book... I hope she does).

This book is more centered around Macey McHenry, daughter of U.S. vice-president candidate Senator McHenry. When Cammie visits her at the end of summer vacation, they are attacked, Cammie, Macey, and Preston Winters, the presidential candidate's son. On the roof of their hotel, Macey and Cammie, being the Gallagher Girls that they are, fought off the attackers (aka got lucky), but ended up with some injuries (broken arm, concussion). When Macey comes back to school, a member of the Secret Service comes with her. To class, to lunch, EVERYWHERE! She won't let her leave school grounds, even for a run!

While Macey is continuously taken out of school to attend rallies and parties for the campaign, Bex, Liz, and Cammie decide to follow and investigate. Many questions are asked, not all of them Cammie wants to know the answers to. Spies lie, thats what they do, but all Cammie wants is to find out whats going on!In this thrilling spy story, anything is possible.

Ally Carter really knows how to write to get your attention. Since these books are summaries of Cammie's spy-work (written from Cammie's point of view), Ally made sure to write how a girl in her junior year would probably talk and think.

The only problem I had with this book is that the majority of the many questions asked throughout the story remain unanswered. But, I'm almost sure she'll be writing a fourth, because there are many things left to uncover in Cammie Morgan's junior year at Gallagher Academy. I can't wait to read it (if IT exists, but thats classified :-) I definitely suggest this book!
