This book is about

Cammie Morgan returns to the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women – really a spy school – in this sequel to I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have To Kill You. She thought last semester had been difficult, between going on the biggest undercover mission of her life and starting Covert Operations (aka CoveOps) with a brand new (and hot) teacher. Now everyone and everything she thought she knew is becoming less clear. Her mom, the headmistress, and her CoveOps teacher are acting really suspicious, moreso than usual (they ARE spies, too). Then special guests visit Gallagher and security breaches threaten the security of the school. Cammie finds herself in even more trouble than last semester, so what does she do? She goes undercover with the help of her friends to reveal the secrets surrounding Gallagher Academy.

On a scale of 1 to 5 (1=HATED it, 5=LOVED it) I would give this book a


I loved/hated this book because

Cammie’s first-person point-of-view really tells her candid feelings about everything that is happening – from boys to her relationship with her mom and friends to dealing with her MIA – and presumably dead – father. She makes some very good points. It was really exciting to read and I could imagine all the missions she went on. Really fun to read – I couldn’t put it down!
