Cross my Heart and Hope to Spy – Ally Carter

This young adult novel by Ally Carter is a delightful, fun read. Cammie Morgan attends a school that on the outside seems like a 200 year old mansion. Inside, however, is a maze of twists, turns and rooms that unveils as a school to train future spies. Classes aren’t just geography and world cultures, but also classes in Covert Operations with surprise “pop quizzes.” While she has been attending this school for a while, her life is turned upside-down when this all-girls school suddenly has the unthinkable happen. Fifteen boys are invited to attend the school. Suddenly, Cammie has to figure out how to maintain her spy appearance with boys who may be better spies than she is. This is the second book in the series and continues to follow the same sort of twists and turns as the first book, I’d Tell You I Love You, But then I’d Have to Kill You.
