I'd Tell You I Love You but then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

GG1Cammie Morgan is not like other girls her age, and it's not because she's the daughter of the principal of the elite boarding school she attends to... but because said school, the Gallagher Academy, is actually a school for spies!

As a new year starts, Cammie is excited about seeing her best friends again - Liz and Bex - and start her new classes but soon two very unexpected things happen at the Academy. One is the arrival of Macy McHenry, a senator's daughter who has been kicked out of tons of boarding schools and has landed inadvertently at the spy school. And, then there is the arrival of Joe Salomon, a former spy who has come to the Academy to teach Covert Operations.

While on a Covert Operations assignment, Cammie meets Josh, a local boy who has no idea about what really goes on at the Gallagher Academy and who thinks she's just a regular girl, a delusion she really wants to keep him under.

I'd Tell You I love You but then I'd Have to Kill You
(what a long title!) is the first book in the Gallagher Girls series, and I found it to be fun but I also sort of expected more spy stuff to happen, however it was a good start to the series. Cammie and her friends are definitely the kind of girls I would love hanging with and, all in all, the book is fun. And I'm so very intrigued about Cammie and her family - what happened to her dad? what's up with Mr. Salomon? what will happen next? - and will be reading the second book soon.



  1. I really like this series. The spy stuff comes a little more in each book, but since they're still in school, it's more class stuff and personal stuff. I really hope Ally Carter continues the series after they graduate so we'll get to see them doing official espionage.

  2. This book sure sounds like fun; somewhat a teenage Charlies Angels. I'll definitely look out for this one!
