Series: Book 4 of Gallagher Girls

When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.

Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide.  When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.

In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.

As always, Ally Carter delivers the action in her Gallagher Girl series. Only the Good Spy Young contains a great balance between the mental and the physical. We don't get to see much of Cammie's regular life, or life at the academy in general because the series-long mystery has sped up considerably.

Everyone is wrapped up in what's going on, as they should be. What is really going on though? How are things with Zach going to play out? Is Cammie really going to lose another important man in her life? Hasn't the poor girl been through enough already? Throughout Only the Good Spy Young much hinges on Cammie's father's past. Having to face that alone, without the added danger, could cause many to lose focus.

I loved the support from Cammie's mom and friends. I love how they understand that she can't always be sheltered and that it's gotten to the point where dangerous or not, she has to stand on her own. They can back her up, but they can't do it for her.

I'm not quite sold on the ending. It's leading us directly into the next book, but I'm rather wary of the places it may take the story. I didn't have the gushy love for this book as I've had for the rest of the series, but I definitely liked it and can't wait to get my hands on the next one.
