Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy by Ally Carter

As you may recall, I absolutely loved I'd Tell You I Love You but Then I'd Have to Kill You, so when my copy of Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy finally arrived at the library, it jumped to the top of my reading pile*

To refresh quickly -- Cammie Morgan is a junior at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women -- or really, a boarding school for aspiring spies. In the first novel of the series, she goes to town on a class assignment and meets a normal boy. They start dating... chaos ensues... if you haven't read it yet, get thee to a library immediately!

When the second book begins, Cammie is returning to school after winter break (and after the rather traumatic events of the last semester). But something secret is going on -- an entire wing of the school has been closed off, and the teachers are whispering behind closed doors. And then, Cammie and her friends make a discovery -- that there might be another school just like theirs, but for BOYS!

Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy is just as fun and cute and wonderful as the first book, and I will definitely be recommending it to teens in the library. (As a side note, whenever I put I'd Tell You I Love You but Then I'd Have to Kill You on a display, it disappears almost immediately). My only teeny-tiny complaint is that we're probably going to have to wait another whole year for the third volume. *whine*

*Actually, it never really made it to the pile -- I started reading it on my lunch break!

I totally loved this book as well! It is positively adorable, and was so hard to put down once picked up. Loved it. :)

I am glad that this series is doing well. It's cute, it's fun, and it's truly G-rated.

You know... I didn't even notice that they were G-rated until you said that. Which means that teens probably won't notice either... but I'm sure their parents will appreciate it!

I love this series and it's is G-rated. i was alittle confused on the ending of Cross my heart and hope to spy, though. I can't wait for the next in the series.

I loved this book !!!!!!!!!!!!! Is there going to be a third one?

Sara said...

Me too!! And yes, there's going to be a third one... if you check out Ally Carter's blog (see the link in the post), you can get more information. (I think the last I read, she was working on revisions, but I'm not absolutely sure)

I was wondering in Cross Your Heart And Hope To Spy is Josh still her boyfriend?

Sara said...

No, Josh isn't Cammie's boyfriend anymore (and of course, he doesn't remember any of the spy stuff)... BUT he does make a few appearances, and the door is definitely left open for them to possibly get back together, so we'll have to wait for the third book to find out!

I think the third book comes out june 9, 2009. I really hope Zach is in it, he is so cute, I love him, lol. I hope he goes out with cammie.They would be a better match because well, he's a spy too.
