The Gallager Girl Series by Ally Carter
If you're looking for a nice fluffy read for a 12 year old girl (or for yourself!) this is a great series. Not high on intellect, but full of humor, adventure and mystery. Cammie and her three best friends and roommates all attend an elite school called The Gallagher Academy. However what the outside world doesn't know is that it is actually.... a secret training school for spies! Cammie and her friends must deal with the trials of teenage life such as first love and making friends all while conversing only in Arabic and learning how to subdue a villain with a spaghetti noodle.
All four books in the series are fun and engaging and they get better as the series progresses. After the first book the series takes on a more overarching storyline bringing in new characters, reveling long lost secrets and incorporating adventures outside the walls of the school. Cammie, or The Chameleon, as she is called is forced to face some unpleasant truths, decide who she can trust and discover the answers to questions about her past and future.
