Spotlight Series: Gallagher Girls

Ally Carter is the author of the best-selling Gallagher Girls series and Heist Society. She loved school so much she kept going...and going...and going...until finally she had to graduate. Now she has degrees from Oklahoma State University and Cornell University and a house and a job and other very grown-up things.

Her life is either very ordinary or the best deep-cover legend ever. She'd tell you more, know...

I fell in love with Ally Carter after reading her two adult novels, Cheating at Solitaire and Learning to Play Gin. I first picked up I'd Tell You I Love You, But I'd Have to Kill You not knowing it was a YA novel. I was immediately swept up in the idea of a school for teen girls, shaping them into spies. This is one of those series that cemented by love for YA.

Important Characters to Know
Cameron "Cammie" Morgan - aka Chameleon. Daughter of the headmistress. Very good at being unseen.

Rebecca "Bex" Baxter - aka Duchess. British. Very outgoing and up for any mission.

Macey McHenry - aka Peacock. Daughter of a senator and an heiress. Comes off like a tough girl.

Elizabeth "Liz" Sutton - aka Bookworm. Genius, but clumsy. Parents are unaware what type of school she attends.

Zach Goode - Student at the Blackthorne School for Boys. Possible boy spy. Seems to have some romantic interest in Cammie.

Josh Abrams - Civilian boy Cammie gets involved with.
