Ally Carter is a graduate of Cornell University. Apart from the Gallagher Girls series, Ally is the author of two novels for adults, and a new series for young adults called HEIST SOCIETY (films rights recently bought by Warner Bros).
Gr 6-10-Cameron Morgan's junior year at an elite spy school is off to an inauspicious start. She's lured away from her friends, held hostage by a former teacher-turned-rogue, and given the cryptic message: "follow the pigeons." Cammie knows the Circle (evil terrorist operatives so secret many doubt their existence) is still after her. Gallagher Academy is now on a ridiculously high security alert and everyone, including teachers and friends, is suspect. Questions abound. Who can Cammie trust? Why does the Circle want her? And can she possibly have a relationship with super-cute double-agent Zach? Reading the first three books in the series is helpful but not necessary. There's enough background information to bring readers up to speed on Cammie's world and past adventures. Humorous, fast-paced fun.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
