The Gallagher girls are back with another semester of adventure, surveillance, and romance. The book begins right where the first left off, with Cammie, aka the Chameleon, upset about being forced to end things with Josh. She's been debriefed by the CIA, and things seem to be moving back to the normal routine, well as normal as things get in a private school that trains girls to be spies. Unfortunately, the girls at Gallagher Academy are about to face something that they never would have expected...boys. I thought it was a fun addition to the story, and made all of the relationships a bit more complicated. I'm interested to see how Zach, the guy-spy equivalent of Cammie, evolves as a character over the rest of the series.
When comparing Cross my Heart and Hope to Spy with the first book in the series, it didn't quite live up to the first book. I think that's because I was hoping for a bit more growth from Cammie, and to learn more about her father. I didn't deduct much in terms of the rating for this, because I'm sure that these things will be addressed in the remainder of the series.
