I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You is Carter’s first YA book. It takes place at The Gallagher Academy, which, to all appearances is just your typical all-girls boarding school. Except for the fact that it’s totally not – it’s spy school. Cammie is a sophmore at the school, comes from a family of spies, and is known as a chameleon as she has a tendency to become “invisible.” Until a normal boy from a normal neighbourhood spots her, that is.
This book was laugh-out-loud funny. Most books yeah, they make me smile and sometimes giggle, but this one actually had me outright laughing. The narration was just so amusing at parts. And, oh, the references to pop culture – any book that mentions Indiana Jones is seriously cool, let me tell you that much.
I’ve now begun wondering why on earth I never got addicted to Alias like so many other people seem to have done.
(On a side note, they totally did the binding upside down. When you take the cover off, the spine is completely the wrong way.)
