I just finished the last book in Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series UNITED WE SPY. The teen spy school books are bags full of fun with great thrills and I loved the final book. I would really recommend this series!
It also got me thinking about whether I could have got into spy school.
Reasons for and against me being a spy:
For: I change my hairstyle a lot and this would confuse the bad guys allowing me to follow them and you know take them down.
Against: I’m scared of bangs like fireworks and guns so I would freak out if anyone shot at me.
For: I have watched and read a lot of spy based shows and books so I know the lingo like ‘dead-drop’ and ‘run’.
Against: I fall over a lot, which would not be good in emergency situations.
For: I am quite tall especially in heels so I can spot people in crowds and reach things high up.
Against: I can’t speak any languages so could only spy in English speaking countries.
For: I am always early so would never miss a flight or rendezvous (I just wanted to use the word rendezvous)
Against: I don’t really enjoy exercise so I suspect I wouldn’t get far chasing a bad guy.
For: I am a writer so I’d be good at making up fake backgrounds and cover stories.
Against: I like staying at home. But maybe you can just spy online nowadays?
Would you make a good spy?
