Let me just say I am obsessed with spy books! Especially Girl-power spy books! And this series is just certainly that! This is the third book in her series, and I think their should be 5 more but I’m not sure! I love how this series is placed in a spy school that is for Exceptional young women. All the characters are extraordinary and so much fun to read! We are introduced to a new character-Cam's Aunt! Who is Strong willed, and always knows what is going on. She also has a kick-ass-girl-power side which is fun to see. This one wasn’t my favorite though! You know how when you read a series an author kind of sums up what was in the other books. ALLY Failed to DO this!! I had no idea what was happening at some parts, and it would have helped allot if there was a recap! I didn’t even remember some of the characters until the end of the book, which is so sad, because an author shouldn’t make that mistake. When a book is released 1-2 YEARS after the previous one-there should be a recap! Just my opinion!! Anyways sorry about the rant! But DJAGBHC just didn’t compete with my standards-sure it was fun and light, but defiantly not enough spy action or secret spy stuff!! There could have been so much more with the plot! Hopefully Carter delivers on the next one!!! Still make sure to check out this beach read!!4/5Suns(i was going to say three-but i still liked it)
