I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, 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.

Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”-but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her? 

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.

So, so cheesy, but in a really good way! I didn’t think I would enjoy I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You, but it was a quick read that kept me entertained.

You need to know going in that this is about teenager girls who are in a private spy school and one of them falls for a teenage boy, who knows nothing about who she is and the school that she attends. This isn’t going to be a deep read.

I found that the novel did have a bit of a Harry Potter vibe with the private boarding school with really cool classes about learning how to be a spy. It made me really want to go to the school, even though I would be horrible at being a spy!

3 calculators out of a potential 5. It’s a fun light read! I’m excited to read the rest of the series!
