I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You is the first book in the Gallagher Girls series. The series is about Cameron Morgan, a teenage girl who goes to a private school called the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. From the outside, it looks like an ordinary all-girls private boarding school. Except that it’s not. Because it actually teaches its students to become a spy.

Another thing that I like about this book is how the girls are not damsel in distress. They are smart and tough.

They also know their priorities, which is quite a rare case in YA books. Sure, there are times when she doubt it. But not to the point where she makes dumb decision, at least in my opinion, and I totally support that. All in all, I'm surprised at how much I like this book. If you're looking for a fun and fast-paced YA book, I totally recommend this book. As for the rest of the series, I'm looking forward to reading
