I’d Tell You I Love You, but then I’d Have to Kill You
This spy series by Ally Carter is all about discovering who you are. Also known as The Gallagher Girls Series, Disney optioned this story, so we’re excited to see if they take it to the theaters or Disney+. This story follows Cammie through all the trials and tribulations of going to spy school and speaking multiple languages and boys. This series is lighthearted and fun and weaves a secret too big to believe through all the books in this series. We also love Ally’s Heist Society if you speed through the series and need another fix.
