Carter's first young adult novel, which has been optioned by Disney, "I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You", is a story about a girl who goes to a prestigious spy school and what happens when she falls for a normal boy who has no idea who she "really" is. It has been selected as a Texas Lone Star reading list book for 2007-2008. [ [http://www.txla.org/groups/yart/lone0708a.pdf Texas Library Association] ]

A sequel to "Cheating at Solitaire", "Learning to Play Gin" was released in November 2006. Because the books were released very close together, Carter has the distinction of releasing her first three books in under a year.

She also recently published the sequel to "I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You" which is titled "Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy". This is the second book of the Gallagher Girls Series and was released on October 2, 2007. It chronicles the second semester of Cammie Morgan's sophomore year and her self-assigned mission against the boys who have moved into her school. "Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy" was on the "New York Times Bestseller List" for 10 weeks.

The third book of the Gallagher Girls series, Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover, has not been released yet. The release date is June 9, 2009.

Ally is also at work on a new young adult series about a girl named Kat, whose family business is thievery.
