¶ … love you but then I'd have to kill you by Ally Carter offers a brief look at one of the most exciting and incredible occupations, spies. A young spy-in-training by the name of Cammie Morgan is stuck between a "rock and a hard place" as she attempts to live her life at Gallagher Academy and deal with a romantic awakening. Not only is her crush interest a boy outside of the spy world, but he's a regular, normal, average guy. The book does a great job of not only showing the explosive and genius level world of spies, but it also shows a young girl and her battles with love. The lesson learned from this book is how to be honest and truthful even when hiding an important secret. That is, reveal actual details from one's life rather than just maing up stories.
Cammie is a student from Gallagher Academy and the courses the girls there take are insane. From hacking the CIA to making explosive substances, anything under the roof of the academy is strictly confidential. However when Cammie meets a cute boy named Josh, a series of internal battles begin with her wanting to tell Josh the truth but also protect her status as spy and her academy.

(Carter 1) As the story progresses, Cammie makes up stories about her life and her family in order to keep Josh in the dark all while dealing with the hazards of being a spy. Much like it was guarded (the academy), Cammie used instances like going out with friends or hanging out with Josh to deny who she is or make up something new entirely. The school and the activities within are the first instance the reader learn a lesson: to keep secrets.
In the middle of the book, the reader sees the alliance actions, the 'missions' and all the different things going on with Cammie, Liz and her other friends. On page 150, Carter reveals the little things spy kids experience as they make their way around their double lives. "That's when Liz pulled out a notebook I'd seen her carrying…
