Book Review: Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

UK Cover (Which I got!)
Warning: This review contains spoilers about previous books of the Gallagher Girls series. 

At First Sight: Waking up at an alpine convent was not how Cammie Morgan thought her summer would end, and the fact that she can't remember exactly what she did in between leaving the Gallagher Academy at the beginning of summer and waking up in the convent in the early fall, isn't helping at all.

A spy with amnesia makes everyone nervous, and Cammie's family and friends aren't the exception. Particularly because even being back at the academy, surrounded by everyone she loves isn't helping her feel any better, any more like her pre-Summer self. 

Cammie knows that what she was looking for was important, and that she was really close to finding it and that she really, really needs to know what "it" was. 

But most of all, she needs to know she'll be herself again, someday.

Second GlanceOut of Sight, Out of Time is the fifth book in the Gallagher Girl series and I got to say that this series is still has my full attention. 

This book is a little different from the others though, mostly because there aren't as many 'fun' moments in it, it goes to darker places than the previous books. But I like that, as Cammie and her friends grow up, they start to realize that spying isn't a game they are playing, that there are real consequences to their choices - good or bad - and that sometimes saying you're sorry isn't enough. 

US Cover (not a fave)

Also, this book is MOSTLY all about Cammie, I really felt like Liz and Macey fell a lot to the background, as did Zach, but not as much as the other two. The one who didn't was Bex, but that was mostly because she was being a bitch though roughly the first half of the book - and I really didn't like her in this book, she's quick to believe the worse of the people she loves and that irks me. 

Anyway, plenty of characters that I love are back - like Abby and even Agent Townsend (who grew on me a lot). 

Bottom Line: While Out of Sight, Out of Time is far from being my favorite book in the series, I think it was needed to move things forward and I'm really looking forward to reading book six.
