REVIEW: Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter

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.

Holy crap, Zach is so amazing! Even though he wasn't in this book nearly as much as I'd hoped he would be, he has totally won me over. I am not only completely Team Zach, I am anti-Josh. He sucks. I hate Josh. It's official, I have, for the first time ever, changed teams after the first book. OMG.

Macy, on the other hand, who I've always liked, was just kind of whiny until the very end of the book. I'm glad that the real Macy is back, but those 200 pages without her were torture. She and Preston are so cute together! Preston, the presidential candidate's son, is the most adorably dorky little guy ever :)

This series has the best pacing ever, I must say. There's never a dull moment, but I wasn't overloaded with actionactionactionaction. There was also some downtime for me and Cammie to just think about everything that had happened so far. Yay!

Okay, so I feel really pathetic admitting this, but I actually cried off and on for most of the end of DJaGbHC. It was just so shocking and emotional, I couldn't help it. This is definitely the best book in this series so far, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next!

So if you haven't already, I highly suggest that you pick up a copy of the first book in the series, I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You, as soon as possible. The entire series is fabulous, especially Book 3! I can't speak for the fourth book, though, since I haven't read it yet.
