Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy

Spies are the ultimate actors. After the Blackthorn boys move to the Gallaher Academy, Cammie and her friends must find out if cute, spy-boy Zach can be trusted.

When the Blackthorn boys move into the school, Cammie and her friends discover that the only thing harder than spy school is girl stuff—how to fix your hair, how to apply make-up, and how to dress for a dance. After all, the Gallagher Academy may have taught them covert operations, but it has not taught them anything about the opposite sex.

Cross My Heart Hope to Spy has less action than the first book; however, it is still an entertaining story. The story focuses on Cammie’s confusion about boys, especially the confusion on how to deal with a break-up. Even though the story lacks the action of book one, the same loveable characters are in book two and they help drive the story. Cross My Heart Hope to Spy has the perfect blend of romance and intrigue for all age groups.
