When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth

It's been a year since Macey McHenry, a direct descendant of Gillian Gallagher, the founder of the Gallagher Girls Academy, and being the daughter of a soon to be vice president of the United States, she's used to being in the spotlight. Whether she likes it or not. Inviting Cammie to Boston so watching her father accept the nomination for vice president more less boring, with appearances' and statements she has to do, but things go wrong when up on the roof they get wrapped up into a kidnapping plot. Macey's used to attention, but she doesn't like this. A narrow escape leaves both Macey and Cammie with bruises, a broken bone and a serious head injury, but it also leaves them changed, and everything's quite not the same anymore.
