I'd Tell You I Love You, But then I'd have to Kill You by Ally Carter

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You
by Ally Carter

Genre: Espionage
Published: 2006
Paperback: 284 pages
Rating: 5

Inspiration: The 3rd book in the series, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover, is going to be released in June and this looks like a fun spy series.

I started reading this along with my current read because I wanted to participate in the Gallagher Girl book discussions hosted by: Cecilia, Kate, Reyna, and Katie. Find out more info about it here.

Description from author's site:
The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school teaches advanced martial arts in PE, chemistry always consists of the latest in chemical warfare, and everyone breaks CIA codes for extra credit in computer class. So in truth, while the Gallagher Academy might say it's a school for geniuses what they really mean is spies. But what happens when a Gallagher Girl falls for a boy who doesn't have a code name?

Cammie Morgan may be 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 Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for 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, and track him through a mall without him 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 doing something riskier than ever—she's falling in love.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: honeypotness
Such fun antics occur in this tale of girls-in-spy-training. We get to struggle with Cammie as she starts to deal with questions of loyalty and love in her world.

I'm hooked and will continue with with series!
