I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls)
3 journalers for this copy...
Book #1 in the Gallagher Girls Teen series:
The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE, the latest in chemical warfare in science; and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes computer class. So in truth, Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but its really a school for spies. Cammie Morgan is a second generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year shes already fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve 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 an ordinary boy who thinks shes an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through a mall without his ever being the wiser, but can she have a regular relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her. Cammie may be an elite spy in training, but in her sophomore year, she's beginning her most dangerous missions, she's falling in love.
I bought this used paperback at a library book sale in Woodstock, Georgia.

My Review: I read this book awhile ago, it's a fun teen/spy story. I'm interested in reading more in this series. I love the main character, she's smart, sassy and funny.

I pulled this from the Variety bookbox. I love YA books, and as soon as I'm in the mood to read them again (in a memoir mood right now), I'll read this.

This was a fun book to read. I liked the back-and-forth of all the spy/covert ops storyline and the girls being regular teenagers. The author used a lot of imagination. I read this and watched Ocean’s 8 in the same day, sticking with a “girls under cover” theme.

This sounds like a fun, lighthearted read, so I nabbed it from the bookbox.

As I had anticipated, this was a good light read for a time when I just needed to read something that didn't require too many braincells to be active. It definitely isn't a hard-hitting story, with shallow, silly characters, highly contrived plots, and a basic premise that requires an extra-large dose of suspension of disbelief. This is solidly in the "dramatized teenage life" genre, with only a thin veneer of spy-story. Honestly, there was pretty little I could point to and say I liked about it, but it was engaging enough to get me to finish it, and the breezy writing means it was very quick to finish.
