I’m very excited to be on the United We Spy blog tour today! My review will be up on Thursday, but for now I have a post all about one of my favourite characters in the Gallagher Girls series, Bex Baxter.
Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.
Why do I like Bex? I think that’s a very good question. I’m going to try and answer this question as best I can today in this post.
Bex is certainly a very memorable character. She was one of the first characters that popped into my head when I was asked to write this post and my favourite secondary character from the series.
Bex really adds humour to the books, with witty lines and her so-cool attitude that makes me want to either be her, or be friends with her. And she’s English, which makes her all the more relatable. We could even talk about the weather!
Bex is also extremely loyal to her friends. It’s a quality that I greatly admire because it’s not always that you find someone who would do anything for you. If anybody is in trouble, you will find Bex rushing to their side. Where can I buy a Bex?
My favourite Bex quotes:
“The only way Bex would miss this would be if she were unconscious. And tied up. And in a concrete bunker. In Siberia.”
“Most little girls in England grow up wanting to marry
a prince. Bex grew up wanting to kick James Bond’s butt and assume his double-0 ranking.”
“‘Well…” [Liz] said, stumbling over the obvious, “Bex has always been kind of rules-optional.”
“Bex was a natural born spy.”
“Bex was the bravest person I knew. I’m not exaggerating when I say that. It is the honest truth. And I knew a lot of seriously brave people.”
“Bex had spent six hours on a private jet, but her cappuccino-coloured skin was glowing, and she looked as if she’d walked out of a skincare commercial.”
You’ll notice that a lot of these quotes are written in third person and I think this demonstrates the point that Bex is dearly loved. Her parents care about her, the Gallagher Girls do and readers love Bex, as shown in this post here. If you haven’t read these books yet, you need to so that you can find out for yourself just how much of a bright character Bex is.
Have you read the Gallagher Girls books? What did you like most about Bex?

Great Post, I’d love to be part of this tour. I couldn’t agree more, Bex is so cool. She’s loyal but she has the cool-fierce attitude that we can’t help but admire. I’d love someone like Bex as a friend.

GAH, I really need to read some Ally Carter awesomeness. Here books sound fun and mysterious at the same time.
Fantastic post, hon! <33

I love this series as you know. I can’t wait to read this book when it comes out. I for one my favourite character has to be Zach and of course Cammie. I’m sucker for the protag characters unfortunately. Great post Lucy! Looking forward to your review later in the week. 🙂

Reading this has made me want to dive back into the Gallagher Girl’s books! I’ve only read the first one, but I will get around to the rest soon! I forgot how much fun the series was so I’ll definitely need to start reading it again.
Great post Lucy 🙂

I was really happy to see this post, because Bex is one of my favorite characters (she’s actually my favorite Gallagher Girl too)! I love how she’s funny, dramatic, confident, and so supportive of her friends. 🙂 The 2nd quote you used was one quote that really made me adore her character; I’m excited to see what she’s up to in GG #6!
