Unfortunately, I’d Tell You is nearly impossible to get through. The story is slow (how can that be? Ally Carter is writing about teenage girl spies!) and the love story takes forever to progress. There are very few surprises along the way and the characters are caricatures—stereotypes that no one really fits into. It’s not just me; my students usually end up abandoning these books as well. I wish that we had only added one book from the series to the wishlist and that the $20 that were spent on the other two could be spent on extra copies of The Hunger Games or the Angela Johnson novels that keep “disappearing” as quickly as we buy them.
