Our wonderful teen reviewer, Neeka discusses everyone's favorite girl spy in training:
I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
From Ally Carter comes the Gallagher Girls series. These girls go to the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. To others in their town, it’s just a school for rich girls. But if you have a high enough clearance, you know there’s more than meets the eye. You see, the Gallagher Academy is a training school for spies. Cammie and her best friends Liz and Bex are sophomores at the school where hacking into CIA databases earns you extra credit in your classes.
Cammie meets Josh, a super-sweet, super normal boy who is totally oblivious to what really lies behind the stone walls of the Gallagher Academy. Josh can never know the truth about Cammie, but she really likes him--and he really likes her. So what’s a girl to do?
This series is absolutely fantastic. The writing is light and funny--except for a mood change in the writing due to some very dramatic events in books 5 and 6. The characters are lovable. There are six books in the series, beginning with I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You, and ending with United We Spy, that follow Cammie and her friends through their last three years at the Gallagher Academy. Read it. It’s one of those books that you’ll love more and more as time passes. And it’s being made into a movie!
It’s just a fun book, and I love it.
