Macey McHenry was a new student at the Gallagher Academy in the beginning of I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You, and the Gallagher Academy was the last chance she had of attending a prep school. The main reason Macey decided to stay was that her parents would not know what Macey would truly be learning. Initially, Macey was not accepted into the Academy because of her attitude, illustrated by the fact that Bex puts her in a headlock without being punished by the other girls. Macey ended up being accepted because she is a descendant of Gillian Gallagher. She took the fourth and final place in Cammie’s dorm, minorly upsetting the other girls because of their loss of space (including their bean bag corner) and Macey's general behavior. She is more accepte after she helped Cammie, Liz, and Bex decode Josh’s boy behavior due to Macey's greater experience with boys in exchange for tutoring in her subjects, which she needs if she wants to catch up to her real grade level.
- "Her hair might have been stark black and bluntly cut, but it was also thick and shiny, and it framed a face that belonged on the cover of a magazine."

Macey is described as having long, athletic legs, wearing high-end clothes, having a diamond nose stud at least a carat and a half, and having thick, shiny black hair as well as very bright blue eyes. She was once described as being so gorgeous that she was stopped on the streets of New York to be offered a chance to be on the cover of Vogue.
Macey is intelligent despite not doing well at other schools, and is accepted at the Gallagher Academy due to the fact she is a descendant of Gillian Gallagher. At the very beginning, she is bitter toward the other girls but later becomes friends with them. She is also great at giving out boy advice. Macey allegedly hates horses because, according to her mother, Macey fell off a horse and broke her arm when she was younger. She has many different aspects of her personality and changes it to fit the people she is with. She is able to be her true self around her friends, but everywhere else her personality varies. While her father was running for vice-president, her cover to the Secret Service (as well as everyone running the campaign) was of a snotty, stuck-up, bratty girl. In front of the voters, she is a happy, cheerful, and innocent girl. After the election, Macey basically drops both covers. She is also short tempered.
Macey was a student at Gallagher Academy. She intelligently and speedily caught up to the senior class and was at level with Cammie and her roomates. Rachel Morgan explained to the girls that because of Macey's status, it will allow Gallagher Girls access into closed societies that would otherwise be shut off from them. However, at the end of United We Spy, Liz makes a speech saying, "Maybe she is someone who chooses to give back, to serve her life protecting others as someone once protected her." That alluded to the fact that Macey became a Secret Service agent.
Her father, James McHenry, is a senator, (which Macey claims is as dangerous as being a spy) and her mother, Cynthia McHenry, is high class and sells beauty products, (most which are only legal in Switzerland). Macey is also one of Gillian Gallagher's descendants.
- "The Circle of Cavan is after my sisterhood, Zach. Not yours. They're hunting my friends. They're sending Gallagher Girls down laundry chutes, so don't show up here and lecture me about what's at stake." He drew a breath as if to speak, but I knew better than to let him. "If Ioseph Cavan's followers want to settle the score with Gillian Gallagher's great-great-granddaughter, then they're going to deal with all of us, and that doesn't necessarily include you."

Macey is one of Gillian Gallagher's descendants. She helps Cammie in her quest to find out some answers, as do Bex and Liz. Turns out that they want Cammie because they believe she knows information that her father told her.
Macey secretly dates Preston Winters during Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover, although in Out of Sight, Out of Time, it is said they hadn't talked since Preston moved to Rome, and she seems eager to move Preston away from his bad father. It is unknown if she still harbors feelings for him.
Cammie and Macey start off at the wrong end at first, but after they begin to intrepet Josh's boy behavior, they slowly develop a friendship. This friendship includes Bex and Liz.
