Check out our list of the Best Spy and Thriller Books for Girls. Your tweens and teens will love these young adult spy and thriller books! All four are by Ally Carter, the New York Times Bestselling Author of the Gallagher Girls series. This post is from me, Kenzie, and I read all of these books between the ages of 11-13 and I absolutely LOVED them. They were so great that my Mom read them all too and she also loved them and couldn’t wait for the next Ally Carter title. I highly recommend them all and I think you’ll love these page turners too!
