I’ve been a fan of Ally’s Gallagher Girls series for years now, and I adore her Heist Society books as well. Thing is, it’s actually pretty hard to find action-packed YA with a fun premise and amazing characters, but I’m going to make things easy for you! Here’s my list of books you have to read if you’re an Ally fan.
- The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. September’s must-read and an all-round fab book, The Fixer has the whole state secrets and prep school thing going on. Gallagher Academy, meet Hardwicke.
- Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor. Prep schools again, and our intrepid protagonist sticking her nose where it should not be stuck! Bonus of swoon-worthy boys.
- Also Known As by Robin Benway. Another book featuring a teen spy! Definitely reminiscent of I’d Tell You I Love You era Cammie who had no real social skills. Also Known As is super cute and fluffy!
- Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein. Considerably darker and more psychological, but I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to step up the creep ladder from Gallagher Girls.
- Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz. No spy schools here, but bonus of Brit! Kidding. But Alex Rider is actually well-written and engaging. Plus you can watch the movie with adorable foetus Alex Pettyfer.
