I think this is such a great book for young girls, Cammie Morgan, the main character goes to an all girls academy for “exceptional young women,” really the school is for spies. Cammie is extremely talented and incredibly smart but doesn’t have a clue in the world when she meets a boy who has an interest in her. Carter pulls off the emotions and feelings that young teenage girls experience when they have a first crush, the uneasiness and the queasy feelings when boys are talking to you. It took me back to when I was that young and I could feel the pressure to impress and the nervousness that you might say the wrong thing, you get to experience those feelings through Cammie in Carter’s writing. You can feel the excitement when she first meets Josh, “I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t some inadvertent pinkie-brushing, which led to a tingly sensation.” I think this quote describes the rush of feelings that people experience when they are next to someone they have an interest in perfectly. I like Cammie because she is a believable and relatable character. I think this would be a good skill to master in my own writing because no one wants to read about characters that don’t have any flaws.
