Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure August – Ally Carter – I’d tell you I love you, but then I’d have to kill you (Gallagher Girls 1)

This was a somewhat disappointing start for action and adventure August.  The ideas were good but the story line weak.  I liked the setting of  an academy for young girls to become spies and the overtones of girl power/girls can do anything but the having the main character falling for a “regular guy”  was a cliché from all the TV shows it makes reference to (such as Alias and Buffy).  Despite this, I am tempted to read some more of the series to see whether the stories go beyond romance formula and move into the exciting action/adventure that we get hints of later in the book.
