Book Review #399 - I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1) 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.
My Rating: 3/5
I had high expectations for this book as I had heard nothing but good things about it.
I found it really hard to read this book for any extended period of time. I found it really slow paced and the characters just did nothing for me.
The whole spy concept was the only positive I could find in this book. The whole idea of a spy school was fun and fresh.
I do intend to read the second book simply because I own it but if it doesn't improve then I don't intend to read any further into the series.
