Book review: Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

Not If I Save You First
by Ally Carter

I have to admit, I haven’t read any YA in a while, but the storyline of this book reminded me so much of the movie and TV series Hannah that I just had to read it. And I was so glad I did! It sucked me in from the very first page and wouldn’t spit me out until hours later when it was time for me to cook dinner.

This is a wonderful romantic suspense YA with a strong heroine with a smart mouth. She’s funny and sassy and very cute. And she can throw a hatchet like it’s nobody’s business.

The boy she grew up with has changed because of what happened to them both in the prologue, but he really grew on me and showed his passion and earnestness as the story went on.

This is not a Christian book, but it’s clean.

It’s incredibly compelling and entertaining, and it made me go look for more Ally Carter books to read. I can’t recommend this one enough!


  1. I love all of Ally Carter's books! And I too was reminded of Hanna in this one! The Gallagher Girls series is my favorite of hers.

    1. I'll have to look up the Gallagher Girls series! I really enjoyed this book of hers!

    2. The first book is I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You. Isn't that a great title? I also like the Heist Society books. They reminded me of Oceans 11 a little bit. :)

    3. That's a totally cute title! Thanks!
