Ally Carter. CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY


Yay! I’ve been waiting to read this sequel for a while. We’re back with Cammie Morgan at her spy school, the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. Cam’s dealing with the fallout of breaking up with her boyfriend Josh from last semester and being debriefed at CIA headquarters when she hears the strangest news of all. There had been rumors, but now they hear that there is, in fact, a spy school for boys too, called Blackthorne. Apparently someone has decided it would be a good idea to have some of the boys come and stay at Gallagher for a semester. The girls aren’t sure what to make of this. Of course, it means dressing differently, acting differently, and who knows what else. Plus, can these boys be trusted? Cam and her friends are certainly going to investigate. This was just a much fun as the first book!

The first book, I'D TELL YOU I LOVE YOU, BUT THEN I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU, has been optioned for a movie (reviewed here April 2006). This doesn't mean that it automatically will for sure be made into a movie, but I sure hope it does. The company who bought the rights also made HOLES, one of my all-time favorite book to movie adaptations. So I have high hopes for this one!
