Top Customer Reviews
Carter has created a cast of likable characters and breathed new life into an overdone teen literary genre by giving it a new, high-tech twist. The plot is not complex, but it is compelling - admittedly I steamrolled through this book in two days. Moreover, I am always glad to see books on the shelves that contain intelligent, independent young women destined to be extraordinary in a world that seems to encourage mediocrity. The "Gallagher Academy created everything" from velcro to duct tape line gets a little old and repetitive, yes we get it you are a bunch of spy geniuses, but all in all it's a nice breezy read with a good premise. The next book in the series is currently sitting on my nightstand, but this time I can say with certainty it will not take me a whole month to dive in.
Because The Gallagher Academy isn't exactly what it appears to be. It's an elite school, that's for sure, and the only boys who grace its grounds are the male teachers. After that, though, the similarities between The Gallagher Academy and every other elite boarding school in the world ends. Instead of math and reading, English and horseback-riding, the girls who attend this school take courses in Covert Operations, Ancient Languages, Countries of the World, Culture and Assimilation, and Protection and Enforcement. The Gallagher Academy is, in a word, a school for spies.
Cammie Morgan is a second-generation Gallagher girl--her mother, who also attended the school, is now the headmistress. Her two best friends, Liz and Bex, are both super-smart, and the best spies-in-training she knows (except for Liz's lack of coordination, but that's another story). Cammie has spent most of her life inside the walls of The Gallagher Academy, and now that another semester is starting, complete with new CoveOps teacher, hunky Joe Solomon, she's really looking forward to the new school year.
But then things start to get a little out of control. Mr. Solomon seems to know all about Cammie's missing-and-presumed-dead father. She meets a boy in town, Josh, who finally sees her, really sees her, like no one else ever has.Read more ›
Cammie was a decent heroine. She’s like royalty at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women (aka spy school for girls). Everyone knows who she is both because her mother is head mistress and because everyone knows how her father died on a mission. She’s a great student and as far as spy stuff goes, she’s called “the Chameleon” because she blends into the background when she wants. She’s developed this skill over the years and she’s become used to being looked over, around, and through even if she is notorious. But when Josh, a local teen boy, actually sees Cammie she can’t get him out of her mind. Thus Cammie and her friends set out to investigate Josh to ensure he’s who he says he is.
Cammie’s cluelessness about boys and regular teenage life is exactly what pulled me in for this book. This is where the humor came in and was the best thing I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You had going for it. At one part I literally laughed out loud. I just wasn’t expecting to laugh out loud which made it all the more funny to me. I wish that humor was just a bit more present throughout though. That probably would have bumped it up another notch for me because I do love a book that can make me laugh out loud.
Josh was endearing.Read more ›
