The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family from the Circle of Cavan--an ancient terrorist organization that has been hunting her for over a year. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and the dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home.

Once she returns to school, however, Cammie realizes that even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers. Cammie, her friends, and mysterious spy-guy Zach must face their most difficult challenge yet as they travel to the other side of the world, hoping to piece together the clues that Cammie left behind. It’s a race against time. The Circle is hot on their trail and willing stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.

Editor reviews

When a bruised and underweight Cammie wakes up in a convent in the Alps, she has no idea how she got there, but quickly finds out that her entire summer is gone-- and she can't remember it. She knows she ran away after Joe Solomon almost died, but doesn't know where she went or what she did. This is a problem, since the Circle of Cavan may or may not have taken her at some point and extracted information from her. Her mother and friends are glad to have her back, and Zach is now living at Gallagher Academy to keep him safe from his evil mother, but Cammie is having a hard time readjusting. She frequently blacks out due to her multiple head injuries, and occasionally shows some mad assassin skills that she didn't have previously! She and her friends try to figure out what happened, and whether or not the circle is still trying to kill her. Their research takes them to Italy, where it turns out Cammie made some startling discoveries. Can she follow all of the threads and get the answers that she needs... and still stay alive?

Good Points
Hard to write a review of this AWESOME book without giving too much away, but it was even better than the first four! The details of spying make me think that either the author is really good at research or has a background that she isn't telling us about. I love how supportive her friends are, how her mother and aunt are worried but not overly in her face, and how Zach doesn't doubt Cammie's abilities but checks up on her none the less. Also, the girl on the cover is not a stick. Hooray.

After Only The Good Spy Young, I had expected some more details and depth in Cammie's character...but it is a great book nonetheless!

The Plot thickens...even more!

After Only The Good Spy Young, I had expected some more details and depth in Cammie's character...but it is a great book nonetheless!

Good Points
The story moved along nicely, and the events that happened were executed in a way that flowed well. Also, a lot of the questions that had been haunting Cammie and Gallagher Girl readers had been answered... plus the ending didn't have too bad of a cliffhanger like the last one :)

I didn't like the idea for this story in the series, to be completely honest. I was expecting something more from Ally Carter but I still enjoyed this book. The characters were great, the action was okay with a very intense ending that almost made me believe that it was going to be the end.

Cammie finds her answers

I didn't like the idea for this story in the series, to be completely honest. I was expecting something more from Ally Carter but I still enjoyed this book. The characters were great, the action was okay with a very intense ending that almost made me believe that it was going to be the end.

Good Points
The chapters in Out Of Sight, Out Of Time were pretty short and I got through the book in a day. They travelled to a couple of places to help Cammie remember and that part made me laugh at the awkward encounters and sad when the worst happened. I loved the way Ally Carter made everything fit with the puzzle and how Cammie couldn't barely remember anything. I liked it because it surprised me at some points which is always great. The new characters' in this book were amazing and very deceiving. Dr. Steve surprised me not only because he had to protect Zach but also because he didn't want Cammie to get hurt by anyone.
