Today I’m blogging about the last book from my list of Summer Reads; I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter. It’s a part of the Gallagher Girls series that includes four more books and the sixth and final book to be released this September.
The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a school that everyone in Roseville, Virginia thinks is for snotty girls whose parents buy them everything. The normal people in Roseville can’t see what kind of classes the students at Gallagher Academy take over the big stone wall that separates the school from the outside world. But if those people could see what they were learning in P.E., they would know these girls weren’t just regular preppy girls. They were spies.
Cammie Morgan, the headmistress’s daughter, is a student at Gallagher Academy and rooms with her best friends Bex and Liz. Soon a new girl joins Gallagher and the girls think Macey is just a beauty queen reading magazines, but Macey is spy material too and soon becomes part of Cammie’s group. The four girls go on adventures that may be breaking some of the rules at their academy, but only minor ones. Minor rule breaking, that is, until Cammie meets Josh.
Josh may be as normal as they come compared to the spy that Cammie is, but soon enough he steals her heart. The only problem with Cammie liking Josh is that she can never tell him who she really is. She makes up this whole story to try to cover up what happens in her not-so-typical family. Bex, Liz, and Macey jump in to help Cammie with all her boy troubles. It’s funny that a group of spies can crack a code but at times cannot figure out boys.
This book (and the rest of the series) has your teen romance in it, along with what it takes to go to the Gallagher Academy. I like the way Carter wrote the story with little side comments from Cammie as she tells what happens on each mission, even missions like deciding what to wear on a date with Josh. It was a really cute and very funny book and I can’t wait to read the last one!
