In I'D TELL YOU I LOVE YOU, BUT THEN I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU, readers were welcomed to the Gallagher Academy, an all-girls school that is known for its emphasis on academics. What outsiders don't know is the school is actually training the young ladies to become spies. Gallagher Girls are trained in the martial arts, taught "real" history, learn political secrets, and are multilingual.

The second book, CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY, the second book in the series, picks up shortly after the first book. Cammie Morgan and the other Gallagher students know how their school operates and are used to it being an all-girl campus. When guys from the Blackthorne Institute come to share their studies and their teachers, some of the girls get distracted while others get suspicious. Cammie is a bit of both camps. She appreciates the fact that the guy spies are smart and savvy, but she doesn't trust them. She kind of got off on the wrong foot with Zach, one of the spy-guys, and she can't stop thinking about Josh.

She also thinks her new schoolmates are hiding something -- and they might not be the only ones. Old photographs and overheard conversations make Cammie question her father's schooling and spy work. Will she ever find out what really happened to him?

When push comes to shove, the Gallagher Girls are here to save the day - and maybe have some fun along the way. CROSS MY HEART will please fans of the first Gallagher Girls novel. All of the books have a fun mix of spies, lies, and romance that pleases tweens, teens, and adults. Make sure to read the books in order:

Seriously, Ally Carter has out done herself with "Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy"!
I started reading the book around 7 or 8 PM and stay up until 12 PM finishing it. I could not put it down even though I told myself many times, "Put down the book. It will be there tomorrow." It was just too addicting.
"Cross My Heart..." picks off where Ally Carter's first book "I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You" (now called LYKY) ends. After a hard winter break, Cammie's back at Gallagher Academy. She's still hurting from a break-up she did not want to happen and worried about CoveOp, her most challenging class. Loads of action happens during the 250 or so pages. I wish I could tell you more, but I'd ruin the entire book for you guys.
My mind is still reeling from finishing the book. It leaves you with some answers but even more questions.
If you haven't gotten a hold of the book yet, GO NOW!!!!

So... We are back at the Gallagher Academy, a secret spy school for girls, and we are reunited with all together almost-perfect spy, Cammie Morgan. Cammie's mother is the school principal, her father died on a secret mission, and a new teacher (Mr. Solomon) seems to be a little too familiar with Cammie's family. We start out the book with Cammie being tested to make sure that she will stay away and not communicate with "The Subject" aka Josh. Through the begining of the book we are taking part in weird happenings at the academy and then we are trying to find out what BLACKTHORNE really is. Once we find out that Blackthorne is a secret spy school for BOYS (thanks to Cammie's EXCELENT spywork) we also find out that the Blackthorne boys are coming to Gallagher and we don't know if they are there to stay. Cammie is introduced to a Blackthorne boy named Zach who seems to take a very strong interest in Cammie and becomes VERY suspicious. Cammie runs into Josh on a mission with Zach and leads him to believe that Zach is her Boyfriend. Bex, Liz and Massie all come back and are better friends then ever! Altogether, in the end of the day... it's a TRUE spy ending that you don't want to miss out on. Will Cammie be with Zach again? Will Cammie go back to Josh? Does Josh REALLY not remember Cammie's BIGGEST secret? We won't know FOR SURE unless we read this and it still keeps us guessing and waiting for Gallagher Girls book three to come out! Have fun!
I loved this book and i hope everyone else will too! Be sure to read it, the worst that will happen is that you won't like it ( yeah right!) and you can just put it down! This book deserves its five stars! I was worried that it wouldn't be as good as the first book but i was proven wrong! For ANY age.
I hope you enjoyed my review! Check out my others!

Like the first book about the Gallagher Academy For Exceptional Young Women (I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You), this one is absolutely fantastic. There's a lot of action, laughs, covert ops and spy lingo. Of course, there are boy issues to sort through too. Cammie's a really great character: fun, lovable and relatable. I loved this book, and can't wait for the next one (there is going to be a next one, right?)!

(Ignore the cruddy title)
My friend lent me her copy the 1st of the Gallagher Girl books last year, and I absolutely LOVED it!
So, when I heard the second one was out, (With out my knowlegde, too!) I HAD to have it...But I had no money. My birthday was fast aprraching so I used a chunk of my Birthday money to buy this rather than waiting to recive it as a gift or something.
I anxiously, (did I spell that right?) awaited the book's arival, and was so excited when it FINNALLY got here.
I dove right in, and I got exactly what I expected. (In a good way, not the I already know where this book is going after the 1st chapter kinda way)
My conclusion is that 'Cross My Heart & Hope to Spy' is as good as, if not better, than 'I'd Tell you I love you, but then I'd Have to Kill you'
I CANNOT wait for the next Gallagher Girl book comes out, (& this time, I'm pre-ordering)
