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

"Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class.  The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies. 
Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea 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, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”—but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her? Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission—falling in love."

Plot: The plot is pretty straight forward and simple. Cleverly written and a nice innocent YA plot. I would have actually preferred it to be a little longer though, so that it could build a little more story around the whole plot. Cause I did feel like the end was speedily wrapped up.

Characters: I found Cammie to be a cute, funny and an age appropriate character. The other characters though were not as well written as Cammie, which kind of makes sense since Cammie is the main character, but at the same time doesn't cause they are kind of key roles to the story.

Pros: Easy, Fun, Cute and FUNNY. I enjoyed Cammie's sarcasm and I like how the book was written like it was a spy report.

Cons: Ended too quickly.

Final Thoughts: I sped through reading this book and the whole time I was smiling and laughing to myself. The whole idea of a Gallagher Girl being behind almost all the famous world events or stopping many was pretty cool and the realism in the fact of how teenage girl react and over analyze boys is historical.. even more when you have girls who are spies. I will most definitely read the whole series and recommend you do too!
