I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Back Cover Blurb:

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. (TAKEN FROM AMAZON)

Basic plot line: Cammie is a teenage girl, but not just any teenager girl. She is a legacy of two super spies for the US government. She goes to a super cool all girls school to train her to be a spy just like her parents. She is super smart in just about everything…except boys.

She meets a boy, a wonderfully handsome and super sweet boy, on a class assignment into town. The problem? She can’t tell him who she is. She has to sneak around to see him. She has to compromise her position at the school. But is it worth it? Cammie thinks so.

How long it took to read: It took me less than a week to read.

Characters: Cammie is a teenage girl in love and super smart and can kick any one’s butt who tries to harm her or anyone else for that matter, what’s not to love? Her best friends are all great supporting characters, well written and are not one note like so many “side kicks” get written as. They help their friend when they need to and they tell her when she has crossed the line. And the boy? Oh yes, I really liked him.

Take it or leave it: Take it. It was a new take on an old forbidden love story and I enjoyed it.
