Goodreads Summary:
When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth...

My Review:

**spoiler alert**

Okay I've formed a theroy, somewhat. Since you don't really get to know much about Zack, he's still this huge mystery, I'm thinking he's a legacy like Cammie, but only all his relavtives, or some, are evil. Or just working for the wrong side. Hence his 'sources'...

Blackthorne is liek the opposite of Gallagher Academy, (no duh) but I don't think the guys there are trained to work in the CIA, FBI or those kinds of things, but trained to work for both sides. Like they get to choose where they want to go when they're done.

I keep thinking in one of the future books Zack is going to say his line: "I'm someone who doesn't have anything to lose."

And then Cammie will go up to him and be like Yes you do. You could lose me. OMG I know that's kind of dorky but hey, that's how it works in my head.

Also, what is up with Aunt Abby's comment. "Well, someone had to do it." Does this mean Cammie's mom was crushing on Mr. Solomon? Cause that's kind of weird....

Okay so the whole Circle of the Caravan has something to do with Cam's dad. I think it's connected to how he died, because after all, "Someone knows." That's why everyone was freaking out, including Mr. Solomon who said. "They won't stop until they get her."

I'm mean seriously!! Could Ally Carter have left it at the worst/best cliff hanger ever? I mean I love it!! I totally can't wait for GG4 too come out.

I'm really glad Macey's dad didn't win. That would have sucked majorly because then Macey would have had to go and live in the white house because they weren't going to be able to keep Abby as her only secret service agent. The plot would have gone all weird because then it would be back to the threesome we never read about.

Overall, this was a really good book. I deffiantly give it 4/5 stars and I reccomend it to everyone!
