The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women lives up to its name. Not only does this exclusive boarding school teach advanced language skills and correct deportment; its students also master the arts of tapping phones, hacking into computers, and spying in public places.MY THOUGHTS:
At school, second-generation Gallagher Girl Cammie Morgan has impeccable credentials: She is fluent in 14 languages and able to kill an assailant in seven different ways. But recently life has dealt Cammie a card that she never anticipated: She has fallen in love with an ordinary boy who knows nothing about her exotic double life. A truly covert romance.
(summary taken from Goodreads)
An all girls boarding school for spies? Heck yes! How amazing does that sound?? I can't even tell you how much I adore this entire series but I guess reviewing this first book is a start! :)
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (abbreviated LYKY because, as cool as that title is, it's a little long) is so much fun to read! Everything about it just makes me smile. It has an awesome cast of characters, an amazingly original premise, and a romance that is so, so sweet.
Cammie "The Chameleon" is the perfect voice for this novel! The way she tells her story is always so much fun to follow, and some things just make me laugh out loud. And I adore all of the other characters, too! From her headmaster mother to her two hilarious best friends to the sweetest boy in the entire world (Josh!! ♥), I could read about them all day and never stop smiling.
So what are you waiting for? If you haven't started the Gallagher Girls series yet, you definitely need to! LYKY is such a blast to read! It's the perfect first novel to an awesome, giggle-inducing series!
BUY or BORROW?: Buy it! I love having LYKY on my shelf! :)
