The story follows the young Cameron (Cammie) (Chameleon) Morgan, who attends Gallagher Academy For Exceptional Young Women, a school for gifted girls (which is actually a school for spies in training). She faces her fourth year of real spy training. While on her first mission, required for the Covert Operations class, she meets Josh, a normal kid (which she is definitely not), who notices her, despite her reputation as a "pavement artist." She does not tell him who she really is and where she goes to school. Soon Josh and Cammie develop a steady relationship with Cammie always sneaking out of the school to see him at night. Cammie does this with the help of her three roommates/best friends, Rebecca "Bex" Baxter, Elizabeth "Liz", and Macey McHenry. Cammie lies to Josh many times about her cat (Suzie), her dad being an engineer (he really died), her mother being a good cook (she is not), being home schooled, having sisters, and living in exotic places (Mongolia & Thailand) When her cover is blown after Josh and Josh's best friend, Dillon, attempt to break into Gallagher Academy, so Dillon can prove to Josh that Cammie is lying to him and does go to Gallagher Academy. Josh and Cammie break up. Once Josh walks away, Cammie is "kidnapped" by her teacher for her CoveOps final. The Gallagher Girls have to rescue Cammie; Josh attempts, unsuccessfully, to save her, and is let in on the secret of the Gallagher Girls. But as he is leaving, he tells Cammie, "Oh, tell your mom thanks for the tea." Showing that Cammie's mother may or may not have given Josh a special kind of tea to forget everything about the secrets of the school, or she might have just given him regular tea. The story ends with Josh leaving the mansion and telling Cammie, "I guess I'll see you around."
