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

The title is intriguin...
The title is intriguing, and so is the concept: a spy-in-training at an all-girls' spy school falls in love with a normal boy, whom she can never tell her true identity. But this story failed to live up to my expectations. Cammie Morgan is a sophomore at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, which is a spy school posing as an elite all-girls' private boarding school. Her normal course load includes PhD-level chemistry, Countries of the World, and hardest of all, CoveOps, which is taught by a ridiculously hot but severe Joe Solomon. It's almost a good thing that the Gallagher Academy doesn't train guys to be spies, because in between work for her classes and trying to put up with her new suitemate, Macey McHenry, a rich delinquent-like wannabe rebel who takes pleasure in others' pain, Cammie has no time to worry about guys. That all changes when, in the midst of a failed Covert Operation, she is seen by Josh. She, Cammie Morgan, nicknamed the Chameleon for her ability to blend in anymore, is seen by a cute guy. Josh is a normal townie who lives the perfect suburban life. He believes that Cammie is homeschooled, has a pet cat, and likes the same things he does. What he doesn't know, however, is that Cammie is not who she says she is; she's fed him a web of lies about herself because she cannot tell him who she really is. Trying to keep up her relationship with Josh without her headmistress mother or Josh finding out her secrets while struggling to please Joe Solomon in CoveOps class is almost too hard to do. Something has got to give. What will Cammie choose: her love for a normal boy or her loyalty to her life's calling? This book makes for a quick and light read. More than a few times, the author seems to try too hard with her random humor, which doesn't succeed in making the story funny. That being said, there IS a decent amount of advice on guys that girls might like to read about.

Great!

This book is a must! It is exciting and a real eye catcher. I recommend it to anyone 13+. This book is AWESOME! I also recommend, "Cross my heart and hope to spy." It's just as great!

grandaughter loves it

My 12 yr old grandaughter had read one of the books in the series at school. She wanted this for her birthday and was happy to get it. I will probably order more.

I'm not very girly, but I loved this book!

I was reading the Alex Rider series (British spy whose 14) and after i finished that series i reeaaally wanted more books about spies. I saw this book and i just laughed at it, but i did buy it, haha. I read it and thought i was a really good story. The first book is girly but there is also enough action to balance it out. My favorite book in this series is book five, out of sight out of time. Her wwriting get darker throughout the series and its awesome watching everyone mature from silly girls to spies!

I was looking forward ...

I was looking forward to this book for quite a while now. I loved the title, loved the premise. I was a bit worried, to be honest, since i didn't like a different book I had read by the author. but this book was great! It was fast-paced, involving, and downright fun. There were some glitches that grated on me, but overall, it was a very enjoyable read. The only thing that bugged me was that my suspension of disbelief was tested to the limit pretty much on the first page. I think everybody has some issues they can't overlook for the sake of fiction. Mine is languages and linguistics. The notion that any girl could learn fourteen languages in a matter of four years is incredibly ludicrous to me. Annoyingly so. I love languages and have tried my hands (well, tongue) at more than a few of them. When I was a kid, one of my idols was this woman who was an interpreter for the UN-turned-TV hostess who spoke an amazing 10 (!!) languages. She grew up trilingual. And even she said that not all of her languages were that good. So yeah, that sort of rained on my enjoyment of the book. But it's still cute and fun, if a little over-built.
