I’d Tell You I Love You, but Then I’d Have to Kill You

book coverI’d Tell You I Love You, but Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter. Narrated by Renee Raudman Hooray for fluffy teen chick lit mixed with adventure! Fifteen-year-old Cammie Morgan goes to the Gallagher Academy in Virginia. It poses as a boarding school for bored rich girls, but really, it’s a top-secret spy school. She’s the daughter of the principal, has good friends, speaks all twelve required languages fluently, and is starting her first year of Covert Operations. On her first assignment, she meets a boy. A boy who actually notices Cammie, nicknamed the Chameleon for her ability to go unnoticed. Smitten, Cammie begins her first practical cov ops experiment in order to date him, secret identity and all. Romance! Adventure! Close calls! It’s a fun book (with one sequel and another on the way), and seems as if it would make a very fun setting for a role-playing adventure, for those interested in such things. The audio book narrator had a kind of breathy teen voice that worked well for scenes on how she didn’t know the language of boy, but seemed a little overdone considering that Cammie was a whole lot more self-aware than most teens her age. I got over this as I listened to the book, and highly recommend this for people interested in a zippy teen romance/adventure.
