Quote: "Some people think the key to strength is knowing how to hit - how to shift your weight, time your blow, land the punch just right. But that's not it. As I stood peering through the crowd at my mother and the man who had taken me out of the safety of the mansion, I knew real strength is not hitting when what you want to do most is kill."

Review: I am a huge fan of Ally Carter. Heist Society is my all-time favorite book. Ocean's Eleven and St. Trinian's are my favorite movies. Covert Affairs is my favorite TV series. You see the pattern? I love things having to do with spies and thievery.
I don't know when this obsession started, but I know for as long as I can remember, I wanted to be in the CIA. It's so.... interesting. And they make it look pretty easy. And usually most of the partners are very attractive...
BUT BACK TO THE BOOK: Only the Good Spy Young starts off with Cammie, the MC, her best spy friend Rebecca "Bex" Baxter, and Bex's parents who work for the CIA and M16. : (HOW AWESOME IS HER FAMILY????) There, Cammie is under careful surveillance and guarding, since last book she got attacked by a group called the Circle. Then, (they're in LONDON, might I add) her Covert Operations teacher, Joe Solomon, tells her "follow the pigeons" and then jumps in the Thames. Cammie then learns her teacher is a member of the Circle. Then they return to their SPY SCHOOL (sigh) and try to uncover Joe's secret message and clear their teachers name.
In Only the Good Spy Young, Zach(Cammie's SPY BOYFRIEND) tells Cammie the true motive behind Blackthorne, which is the boy spy school. We also discover what the Circle is ....( a group of people who trained all their lives at schools like Gallagher Academy and Blackthorne, and then became bad spies. And not bad like they're not good at it, bad like they're bad people.) But we still don't know what they want, or why they want Cammie.
Overall: Only the Good Spy Young is an amazing addition to the Gallagher Girls series, and I seriously cannot wait for the fifth installment. Maybe then we'll get some answers about Cammie's dad, Zach, Joe Solomon, the Circle, Agent Townsend, etc.
