I'd Tell You I Love You ...

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

Every girl dreams of it when she's little ... being a spy, I mean. We invent secret missions to accomplish. We lie to our parents about what we're up to because it's classified information. We make up special moves that knock out our opponent in one blow. That's exactly what Ally Carter accomplishes in her book I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You.

Ally's book gives you a whole new perspective on the spy world. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You tells a story about a young girl named Cammie who goes to a secret school for training girls into spies. Cammie was raised into the spy business, with both of her parents being spies. Nicknamed The Chameleon, Cammie is convinced that she blends in with the rest. That is, until she meets Josh.

The Chameleon does not expect to fall in love. But her path crosses with an average boy while she's on a mission. Dating isn't normal for a spy in training. Josh has no clue about who Cammie really is, and she struggles to keep it a secret. She is forced to sneak out of school and lie about it.

Author Ally Carter

Ally Carter captures every little girl's dream of becoming a spy. From murderous events to fifteen different languages, your eyes will be glued to the page. And when you've finished I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You you will not have to be disappointed because there is a sequel out, Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy. But have no fear, it doesn't stop there. Ally Carter plans to continue with the series until Cammie's story is told. Reading these books will fulfill your dream of being a spy, and you won't even have to lift a finger, except to turn the page.
