The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school teaches advanced martial arts in PE, chemistry always consists of the latest in chemical warfare, and everyone breaks CIA codes for extra credit in computer class. So in truth, while the Gallagher Academy might say it's a school for geniuses what they really mean is spies. But what happens when a Gallagher Girl falls for a boy who doesn't have a code name?
Cammie Morgan may be fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti), but the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for 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, and track him through a mall without him ever being the wiser, but can she have a regular relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her? Cammie may be an elite spy in training, but in her sophomore year, she's doing something riskier than ever—she's falling in love.

My Thoughts
I was seriously dying to read this! I wanted to read it real soon but somehow or another I'll pick up another book and completely forget about it. You know those type of books that put you on edge, stun you and completely knock you off your feet... yep you got it I'd tell you I love you, but then I'd have to kill you is just that type of book! How glad I am that I finally read you!

Cammie Morgan may just seem like your typical teenage girl. She attends school, has many friends and falls helplessly in love. But there's more to her than what meets the eye. Attending a school for spies is definitely out of the ordinary. With so many challenging missions, how was Cammie to know stopping herself from falling in love would be the hardest.

A book full of kiss-ass girl spies? Yes. Yes. Yes. This book is amazing! All the characters are really fun. I particularly liked Bex. Just her British ways and how she helped Cammie with her boy problems. Well, these problems are in fact really major in the 'spying world' and so everything unfolds as we get to see how crazy like could get in Gallagher Academy.

I'd tell you I love you, but then I'd have to kill you is oh so perfect! Especially since whilst reading it, it was so easy for me to imagine everything happening. I applaud Carter's writing. And especially the hilarious bits! Just hilarious! They're really small things that the characters over think and analyse that make you really laugh out loud. I LOVE IT.

I'm certain that I will carry on with this series. I can't wait to read Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy! You can't help but adore the titles of the books too! Ally Carter is an author that you simply can't miss. You go Ally Carter!

  7. So glad you picked up a copy of LYKY! Ally Carter is an amazing writer. As Reading Angel said, her Heist Society books are also really good. And the GG series only gets better (and more confusing, but also full of more awesome boys) as it continues.
