I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have To Kill You
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.

This Blonde’s Review:
I won’t give the description of all three books since they do give away a little of the one before it. I am still counting it as a review of all three books since all three are bound together in my mind and I just finished the last two in the last two days. I love Cammie. She is such a great character, as are all of her friends. I love that the girl spy can have the same boy problems. Well, almost. Cammie and the girls have their own special skills to bring to the table when trying to learn about the suspect, I mean Boy. Cammie is the Chamaeleon. She can blend into any scene, but is that really what a girl wants with a boy? And what happens when that boy can see her even when she is using all of her skills to blend in? Through the series with all of the adventures they get into, these girls are still just girls. Ally Carter makes these girls seem like they could really exist in a top-secret spy academy somewhere. Where they develop their skills, trust each other, and know to use their individual talents to get their guy.

I love this series and can’t wait for book 4, Only The Good Spy Young, to be available in June 2010. There are going to be 6 titles in this series, and I wish I could sit and have a Gallagher Girl marathon and read all of them Now. I’ll just have to mark my calendar! If you enjoy a great young adult girl book about friends with a little fun spy action thrown in, be sure to pick up the first in this series and get started.
