I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You (Gallagher Academy) Publishers Weekly,Set in a spy school for girls, this entertaining novel centers on 15-year-old Cammie, the headmistress's daughter, who must decide if she is cut out for a life of secrets. Though the plot takes a while to unfold, fun details and characters will keep readers engaged (Cammie and her friends speak 14 languages, take classes in Covert Operations, can rappel down buildings and plant tracking devices). But when Cammie, known as the Chameleon for her ability to disappear in public places, is spotted by a cute boy named Josh in the middle of the town fair, she begins a new mission: learning to be an ordinary girlfriend ("All these years I'd thought being a spy was challenging. Turns out, being a girl is the tricky part"). Cammie soon leads a double life, and must decide which one is right for her. Readers may find some details familiar (Cammie lost her spy father during a mission; her CoveOps teacher is a handsome, intense man who seems to get along too well with her mother) and wish that rich, bratty Macey, a new recruit who is "capable of cracking the Y chromosome code," had been developed more fully. But the author escalates the tension well, leading to the night of the final exam, where Cammie finds herself blindfolded, kidnapped and facing off against the retired spies of the facultyand also confronting Josh. Readers will eagerly anticipate the next installment. Ages 12-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

If you are looking for a

If you are looking for a refreshing Young-Adult read, with college unlike any other - this is the perfect book for you. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You is the first book from the Gallagher Girl series, where we meet girls that go to a school for spies, and nobody except them, knows it. The Gallagher Academy is a typical all-girls-school, except, instead of normal subjects, they learn advanced martial arts and chemical warfare studies, they have exams where they need to spy, or go unnoticed, or steal. We meet Cammie Morgan, who happens to be the headmistress's daughter, and when she goes on a mission and gets noticed by a boy - everything changes and her life is suddenly everything but normal. She knows how to kill a man in seven different ways, and she can speak fourteen languages, but when a cute boy comes and says hi - she is definitely not trained for that. What's worst - he thinks she's just an ordinary girl, and she is falling in love with him. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through town without his ever being the wiser - but can she have a 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 mission - falling in love. I loved the writing style, and I loved something new and refreshing - it is a plot that I haven't read before, and I really enjoyed it. Sometimes when it felt a bit childish, I would remember I am not thirteen anymore, but even now at twenty-one, I got lost into this silly world of spy girls and the drama and love life of Cammie. I liked Cammie - she is the type of girl that you would love to have as a friend, because she always makes you giggle with her silly comments. I also liked how brave and honest she was - not always honest though... Sometimes, she was too whiney for her own good, and making little things out of nothing, but then again, all teens kind of do that all the time, so it's acceptable. I loved her friends - they were such a team, and always covering their backs. I loved how, even despite all their differences, they manages to fit right in and have their own impact to the group friendship. Overall, quite an enjoyable read and I would definitely recommend it to you guys, if you love anything YA, or fantasy, or spy girls, or college related. I enjoyed this book, and I wish I read it way sooner. I can't wait to read the rest of the series as well. Thank you to my friend and author, Michael Kott, that send me this book after recommending it to me, as Ally Carter is one of his favourite authors, and he enjoyed this book as well. Check out his book Piasa - it is amazing!

Wow!! As soon as I starte

Wow!! As soon as I started reading this book I was enjoying it. I found myself laughing. This is a story about Gallagher Academy which is a school for girls. It is different then your usual private school. These girls are geniuses and being trained to be spies. I loved the fact that this book is about girls in grades 7 on. The main girls are the girls in the Sophomore class. Cammie who is known as the Chameleon, because people don't notice her, is the one who meets a normal boy and 'falls in love'. The town near the school thinks the school is for snooty girls. So they usually don't socialize with them. I enjoyed the girls using what they have learned to look into this 'normal' boy to make sure he wasn't a spy. I know I will be continuing with this series.

Sigue leyendo para encontrar la reseña en españolThe first thing that I noticed about this book is how funny it is. It's told from the point of view of the daughter of the headmistress of the spy academy and we don't only see what happens to her, but also her thoughts. This is one of the funniest parts, because she has a very sarcastic mind.One of the things that I liked most about this book is that, leaving aside what they teach them, it's a very believable book. There aren't any super secret missions or anything of the sort, other than practical classes and assignments, but even those stay more or less realistic, so there's no actual getting into foreign embassies or anything of the sort.Cammie's main problem is that she's been taught lots of things, except for one: What to do when a boy is interested in her, which is exactly what happens during one of her practical classes in the nearby town. It was really amusing how the girls approach this situation. They start treating the boy as a covert mission and apply everything they've learned to the situation.I also loved all the pop-culture references. Things such as Lord of the Rings or Buffy made the dialogue much more natural for the girls ages.I would recommend this book, and the series in general, to anybody who wants to have a good time reading.-----------------------------------------------------------------------Lo primero que noté de este libro es lo divertido que es. Está narrado desde el punto de vista de la hija de la directora de la academia para espías y no sólo vemos lo que le pasa, sino también sus pensamientos. Ésta es una de las partes más divertidas, porque tiene una mente muy sarcástica.Una de las cosas que más me gustaron es que, dejando a un lado lo que les enseñan, es un libro muy creíble. No hay misiones súper secretas ni nada parecido, aparte de clases y trabajos prácticos, pero incluso ésos son más o menos realistas, así que no hay nada de infiltrarse de verdad en embajadas extranjeras o cosas parecidas.El principal problema de Cammie es que le han enseñado muchas cosas, salvo una: qué hacer cuando un chico se interesa por ella, que es lo que pasa durante una de sus clases prácticas en la ciudad vecina. Fue muy divertido ver cómo abordan las chicas la situación. Tratan al chico como si fuera una misión encubierta y ponen en práctica todo lo que les han enseñado.También me gustaron todas las referencias a la cultura popular. Cosas tales como El Señor de los Anillos o Buffy hacen que el diálogo de las chicas sea mucho más natural, teniendo en cuenta su edad.Recomendaría este libro, y toda la serie en general, a cualquiera que quiera pasar un buen rato leyendo.

A cute story about a teen

A cute story about a teenage girl at spy school who is trying to navigate through learning to be a spy while having her first crush. It was nice to read a story where the 15 year old protagonist acted her age (minus the whole spy tidbit of course). There was nothing particularly thought provoking nor any major drama/issues, but it was a good, light read. It is easily recommendable for all ages who enjoy reading about first crushes with a spy school backdrop.
