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

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter is a very lovable book and the series is all the more engrossing.

Here's the synopsis:

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school--typical 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 seven different ways wither her bare hands, 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?

This book was extremely entertaining to me. The idea of a kick-butt girl who could save the world in a moment's notice but has no clue when it comes to normal boys and normal dates, fabricates the perfect quirky romantic novel.

The characters are easily loved as they are easily able to disable the toughest of alarms and locks. The cover gives a simple but memorable design of what's inside the book.

The best part of this novel was the suspenseful climax when Cammie and her classmates tackle their final exam. The girls are so real and pliable that you feel as if you could befriend them yourself (that is if you don't spill their secret).

Happy Reading! :)
