Hey,

I am looking for some books that invole spies, heists, espionage, CIA, FBI, and ect.. I do not want a mystery book though. I would also like if the main character was a girl. I have already read the Speciliast series, the Gallager Girl series, Heist Society, and Love Undercover. If you know any young adult books like this that I have not already mention, I would be happy if you were obliged to tell me. Please and Thank You

I second Yan's nomination, The Agency books are really good. 

Also there's a series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes called The Squad.  I haven't read them but they're about cheerleader spies.

the squad series (only 2 books) was a lot of fun.  and that brings to mind the Shannon Greenland series, though I'm drawing a blank on the titles right now...but there are 4 in the series....  reads similar to the squad series

I haven't read any of these books, but you might like the Fearless series by Francine Pascal.  Here is the summary of the first book.

Last summer, a chance encounter with a sympathetic CIA agent gave Gaia Moore precious insight into her parents' history - and their decades-long feud with her uncle. But Gaia remains unaware of which Moore twin is truly her father. That one piece of information had seemed the most vital key in understanding her own identity. Until now. Trapped in an institution for enemies of the Agency, Gaia finds herself, once again, playing reluctant saviour to various colourful patients. And before she can help herself or them, she's going to meet someone closer to her than she ever imagined. And he's going to blow her world wide open.
