Review: I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Released: March 20, 2007
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Rated: YA
Series: Gallagher Girls, Book 1
Buy: Amazon
The Gallagher Academy for exceptional young women is fairly typical all-girls school--that is, it would be if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses, but it's really a school for spies.
Cammie Morgan is a second-generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year she's already fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different way (one of which involves a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for a boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.
Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and trackhim through town without his ever being the wiser--but can she have a relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her?
Cammie may be a elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she's beginning her most dangerous mission--falling in love.

What I thought

I don't know why I kept putting off this series, I loved the Heist Society series and I knew this would be just as great or even better. This was a really fun story. I love the idea behind it and I was quickly drawn to the story and to the characters.

I loved Cammie and her friends Liz and Bex. I wasn't so sure about Macey at first, but in the end I came to love her as well. It was interesting to see Cammie going through spy school and finally meeting her first boy. I felt so bad for Cammie, since obviously she couldn't tell him who she was and what she does. It really made you feel for Cammie and her not so normal upbringing.

This was a great, light read that kept me entertained. It's well worth reading.
