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

Typical all girls' school is actually a school for spies Capable of killing a man sopho Cammie I' 3755 stars You shouldn t judge someone until you ve walk a mile through an underground tunnel in her uncomfortable shoes I had a tough time deciding on the final rating of this book Most of the time my enjoyment was on the 4 star level but this book also isn t flawless and some parts begged for logical 3 star rating In the end I m going to give it lower 4 stars because it was so much fun and an amazing introduction to a potentially kick butt series I m very excited to continueOne of the things I enjoyed most about it was the setting of the secret spy school The Gallagher Academy iself the teachers and subjects I found myself wanting to know about each individual subject especially I m hoping we get to know much about the classes in the seuels If you can be still enough and common enough then it s really easy to be invisible Another pro of this book Gallagher Academy is an all girls boarding school so there was a lot of female friendship Each girl has her own distinctive personality and it was simply fun to follow Cammie and the girls attending espionage classes and taking on their new spy project involving The Subject of Cammie s interest Did you say something Macey I asked but she cut me a look that could kill She reached into her bag ripped off a sliver of Evapopaper and scribbled Can we study tonight Tell anyone and I ll kill you in you sleep It was a lot of fun Fast and easy read to get through uickly But at the same time the humour combined with some slightly serious elements which makes me hope for action intrigue and general kick assness in the seuelsThe romantic aspect of the book was just ok ish The romance wasn t the strongest point of the book which I stated above but nor was it a con either Josh alias The Subject was rather bland character Nice normal guy but very bland character overall That s why I like the first half and the very last part of the book than the second half The second half was a bit too focused on the romantic aspect understandably but it just wasn t my favourite Cute but ultimately forgottable aspect of the book for me Relating to that there was the minor thing that made me cringe How much the town kids disliked and dismayed the supposedly rich boarding school girls Like Josh s friend Dillon hated them so much he even lowered to publicly harassing a girl for no reason whatsoever Because she was rich and priviledged to him And I can also point out that he lives in a middle class american suburban neighborhood which the heroine described as very nice looking He is a privileged kid himself so don t even start me on that oneHim and the other guys in his group to not only disdain but outright mock and hate on the girls 247 was just such an unecessary element to the book Not prevalent throughout don t worry but it was not my fave Over the top unrealistic and fake and honestly nope But this is about the only real con I have about the book so safe to say it was a great ride anyway Women of the Gallagher Academy who comes here she asked Just then every girl at every table even the newbies stood and said in unison We are the sisters of Gillian Why do you come my mother asked To learn her skills Honor her sword And keep her secretsTo what end do you work To the cause of justice and light How long will you strive For all the days of our lives we finished and I felt a little like a character in one of my grandma s soap operas THE GALLAGHER GIRLS CASTCameron Cammie MorganCodename The ChameleonInfo Main heroine Her mother Rachel Morgan is kick ass headmistress of the Gallagher Academy Good at going unnoticed Rebecca Bex BaxterCodename The DuchessInfo Only Brittish student of the Academy Loves attention and danger Beautiful Good actress Elizabeth Liz SuttonCodename The BookwormInfo Studious Smart A clutz in the field Loves taking notes Macey McHenryCodename nonexistent yetInfo The newcommer Seemingly perfect Rich father Lonely Hard on the outside nice on the inside somewhere deep downOverall a great start to a fun spy series with boarding school setting girl friendship and lots of promise
