I’d Tell You I Love you, But Then I’d Have to Kill You

Ally Carter

New York: Hyperion, 2006

ISBN: 9781423100041

Age:  13-17


Cammie Morgan is a sophomore at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young women.  Cammie may seem like a normal teenage girl, but she is really a spy in training.  Cammie, the chameleon, special spy skill is that she can blend into the scenery.   Cammie works hard at learning to be spy.  After all she is the daughter of a former CIA Agent and the headmistress of the Gallagher Academy. 

Cammie and her friends are excited about starting fieldwork in their sophomore year.  Cammie almost messes up her future career as a spy when she meets a boy (Josh) and falls for him.   She talks her friends into helping her to sneak out of the academy and track Josh down; so that she can “accidently” bump into him.  Unfortunately for Cammie, her “night” operation is found out.  Cammie learns the hard way what it means to be spy.  She can’t ever tell anyone outside of the academy about being a spy. 

“I’d Tell You I’d Love, but then I’d have to Kill You” is a hilarious action packed story.  I just couldn’t put the book down.  I had to find out whether Cammie and Josh will get together or not.   The themes in the story are about friendship, loyalty, making choices, and love.  The book was highly entertaining.  The cover would definitely attract teens with the photo of a teenage girl on the white background only showing part of the girl’s face creates a sense of mystery.  Teens will want to read the book just to find out what it’s all about.
