I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls, #1) I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Book 92 of 100 for the 100+ Reading Challenge
Book 24 of 50 for the New Author Challenge
Series: Gallagher Girls (Book 1 of 6?)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cameron Morgan is a sophomore at a school for exceptional girls. The general public has no idea how exceptional they really are--because the girls are trained to be spies. When Cammie and her two best friends are out in the town on a recon mission for a class assignment, a boy named Josh notices Cammie. But he's a regular high school kid, and Cammie isn't. She wants a relationship with Josh, but it is strictly forbidden. Should she stay away? Should she lie about who she is?

I found this book so enjoyable to read. Disney has optioned this book for a movie, and I have to admit that it would really make a fun flick. You can't look too deep into a book like this. It's far-fetched and implausible. But the humor is great and the plot really clips along.

I think there may be a couple minor swear words, but the book is refreshingly clean considering the ages of the characters. I would recommend it for 6th grade and up. I've already started the second book in this series!

This book must be really good since you're already reading the second book. After reading the synopsis, I think the title's great too.
