Title
Gallagher Girl Series
Author
Ally Carter
Review
Cam the Chameleon is a spy in training. She attends a secret school just for the brightest and most cunning girls where the girls train to become the best spies possible. The Gallagher Girl series starts at the beginning of her school year sophomore year and continues on to the final days as a student. There is adventure, trying to solve the mysteries of her family and school, romance, falling for the most dangerous boys possible, and anything spy related, in other words danger and trouble. It’s a long story that’s exciting and interesting the whole time. It’s still a story I like to return to when I find that I don’t have anything else to read (and if I have time to spare).

An interesting take on the prosecution of a WWII Nazi criminal in Germany in recent years. A promising defender takes on an unsavory case & is mentored by the best. Suprising twists & turns make for an interesting read. Notes at the end shed light on changes in German law.
