Book Review #53
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter
Rating: three stars (out of four)

You thought regular high school was tough, well Cammie is going to Gallagher Academy, an all girl school for spies.  By sophomore year she is fluent in over ten languages, can kill a man seven different ways and hacks into the CIA for extra credit.  So falling for a boy shouldn't be so stressful, not when you are a spy-in-training. Having a relationship with a boy may be the toughest mission Cammie may try to undertake. 

A lesson that I learned the hard way, or more like the I'm-delusional-because-I-didn't-make-sure-way was this: if you are reading a book, make sure it is not a Sequel.  That being said, I read the sequel to this book first, not realizing my mistake until I looked up the author later.  I really enjoyed this book, it had all the elements of a spy book, but without any gore and major violence.  This book was also remarkably clean.  A lot of books written for teens nowadays usually have to put in a couple obnoxious things, just so they can be "cool" and it was really refreshing to have absolutely nothing in this book that was objectionable.  I thought this book was great and I'd definitely recommend it.
