Out of Sight, Out of Time
With more than a million Gallagher Girls books sold, a legion of fans have fallen in love with the "New York Times "best-selling spy-girl series, and the fifth book delivers the most nerve-wracking, high-stakes adventure yet.
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 that 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.
   My Review
I Have to say if that is the last book in the series then I am sad to see it end because by all means it was amazing in every meaning of the word. There was always something going on in the series but I think by all means and methods the last one was my all time favorite. Something struck me though when I finished reading it and that was the very fact that it seemed to have something very similar to it in the style of the vampire academy series. And yet both series stand out in a very unique way but an engaging and thought provoking way. In this novel we see Cammie at perhaps her weakest point, a point where she remembers nothing at all and we are left to know nothing at all. It is almost as if the author wanted us to feel her amnesia, and to share her knowledge of amnesia. This in many ways was a very thought provoking essence to the book because it meant that we had to gain a better understanding of what it was that cammie was going through, meaning that we got to ride through the emoitons with her to understand everything it was that she was feeling and the fact that something quite serious had clearly happen and did that therefore mean no one she knew and thought was good for her could be trusted at all?

I felt cammies heart ache when she thought zach and bex were together as you kind of hoped that they would work out for one another and be the couple that they so seemed to be throughout the novels, but the author sed a very clever technique of making you see what cammie saw, especially when it seemed that bex had a chip on her shoulder when it came to cammie. I do admit that her friends and her family for that matter, treating her like a child that knew nothing was interesting because it seemed to automatically make you wonder what was going on, what was occuring and what was so wrong that they did not want to share it with cammie. I suppose though that once finishing the book you actually gained an understanding in that they wanted cammie to actually unfold what it was that had happened so that they could work out who the real criminals and traitors were.

I was pleased to see that Joe soloman was actually ok though because I did gaina  sort of crush over him throughout the book. He had that cute sort of handsome teacher feel about him and yet you could see him being the sort of father like teacher as well, the teacher who is there for you regardless of what occurs and what goes on. This was an interesting concept and is one that I am sure many others have enjoyed about the novel, and the series for that matter, but in true honesty you can not say that it was a bad book at all!! there was everything that you wanted in the novel in that there was adventure, power, possesion and adrenaline. it made the heart race and it made you think about all the things that were occuring. This is the sort of series that I will happily more than once, read over and over again. It was progressive in so many ways and it was just a wonderful series, a great series that was progressive and advanced. it deserves nothing less than a five star rating in my opinion. 

The author has done an amazing job and I look forward to reading her next series of books as soon as they become avalible in my local library. She clearly has a talent when it comes to writing and has a lot of imagination in what she wants to write. in my opinion she is the next J.K,Rowling and she is the sort of author you know you will not be disappointed by because a lot of hard work has clearly gone into making her books the best of the best.

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing
