For those that enjoyed the first two in the series, this is a must-read. Little is shown of the girls' junior year classes, for much of the story takes place outside of Gallagher Academy. With the introduction of Aunt Abby, the reader catches a glimpse of what Cammie's dad was like and a fresh look at Mr. Solomon and even a bit more of her mom. There are many loose ends at the end of the story, which will make the reader beg for the 4th book immediately. But, overall, a fun adventure with plenty of action and suspense to keep you turning the page. A solid read -- 'B' rating.

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter (Gallagher Girls #3)
The third in the Gallagher Girl series finds Cammie helping to save her friend Macey from an apparent kidnapping attempt while at Macey's father's political convention. (He's the vice presidential candidate.) Enter Cammie's elusive Aunt Abby (a Gallagher Girl herself) who's been pegged to be Macey's Secret Service protection while back at school. Little does Cammie know that there's much more to the kidnapping attempt than first meets the eye. And why does Zach seem to show up at just the right moment again and again?
