STATUS: TGIF! I’m still troubleshooting issues from yesterday. Fingers crossed that everything will be resolved by Monday.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? FEEL SO DIFFERENT by Sinead O’Connor

Yep! You only have to wait a few more short days before you can get your next Gallagher Girls fix. Ally Carter’s long awaited sequel CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY will hit shelves next week.

After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester at school. But that’s easier said than done when you’re a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world…for spies.
Cammie may have a genius I.Q., but are still a lot of things she doesn’t know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, exactly why is her mother acting so strangely?

Despite Cammie’s best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests–code name: Blackthorne. Then she’s blamed for a security breach that leaves the school’s top-secret status at risk.

Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie’s name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie’s heart—and her beloved school—are higher than ever….

“The characters still succeed in keeping readers interested in the unexpected “missions” around every turn. Purchase this one for fans of the first book.”
–Sarah Krygier, School Library Journal

“If you have the security clearance, come join the Gallagher girls on their latest humorous mission, where you just might learn a little about boys, life, and spying.”
–Book Divas

    This kinda reminds me of Harry Potter, only it is spies instead of wizards…

    May it sell as many copies as HP did!

    I have a question, though. What is this trend lately of headless people on book covers? It’s kinda creepy.

    I loved the first one and can’t wait to read the sequel. BTW, I’d love it if you blogged about pop culture references in novels sometimes. I noticed that LOVE YOU, KILL YOU mentions Buffy the Vampire Slayer a few times. Does something like this date the book unnecessarily? I wondered just because Buffy is now off the air and has been for some time, so when I was reading it, it got me to thinking about how, especially with teens, fads come and go so quickly–and publishing moves so slowly–so is it a risk to write about what is hip while you’re writing the book, knowing that it may be over by the time the book is published? Just wondered. I enjoy your blog btw.

    My 14 year old just caught a glimpse of this book cover and lost her ever-loving mind. Turns out she read the first and has been eagerly anticipating this one.

    Thanks for posting this. Conversation starters with a teenager are always appreciated.
