Operative Watson, Gallagher Girl at heart, decides to write a book review before the book even comes out. Operative Watson is drinking apple juice. Operative Watson realizes that has little to do with this review. Except that this is what the Operative drinks when excited.

On the 10th of January, 1900 hours, Operative Watson refreshes Ally Carter's webpage for the 2,078th time, positive that this time the release date to the new book will jump forward two months. The Operative was wrong.

Recipe to make a perfect book

~ 10 cups of Zach

~ A whole bag filled of suspense and wonderful writing

Mix together thoroughly. Melt the pound of confusion and slowly add into batter, especially the first part. Sprinkle jealousy and anger within the first

           That above is how I felt when I read Out of Sight, Out of Time. Don't get me wrong, it was FANTASTIC. Ally Carter did the most amazing job on this book. Her books take forever to come out but every minute of waiting was worth it. If you don't believe me read the book right now. If you don't have it, go to your local library, and request it, so you can read it. My brain was on overload after reading

Before I get into this book itself I just have to say, Ally Carter= AWESOME. Seriously. I don't think any author does teen heroines quite like Ally Carter.

Now, I think it's a known fact that each book in the Gallagher Girls series is better than the last and this book is no different. There's action, there's an awesome plot, there are surprises and revealations, there's Rome, and, of course, there is romance.

But above all that I'd have to say my favorite part of this book (and the series as a
may ❀

So the rating since the last book remains the same, thank goodness, I dont think I can handle any more disappointment from this series (it used all its allotted disappointment slots too bad)

This book was probably better than the previous book in that the writing is much MORE fitting to the genre. No more whiny characters or terrible terrible humour (tho its still a bit cheesy for YA, but its a work in progress)

I found that this book focused more on Cammie and her internal struggles as well as

Alright, this review is going to have a lot of spoilers. So if you have not read this book yet, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW!!! (and read the book already!!)
So the beginning of the book, in my opinion, started very well. I liked how she woke up in a convent all the way out in the Alps. It really showed that Cammie had traveled A LOT over the summer.
And then the whole memory loss thing really started to effect the story. Because so much was missing between June and October. Everything was like crazy.
This fucking series, I swear to god.

The characters. The plot. The pacing. The absolutely everything.

If you haven't read it and you don't pick up the first book like right this second then we just can't be friends. I'm sorry but I don't make the rules.

why? because:
1) More mystery
2) More espionage
3) More answers
4) More Zach

The plot reeallly starts to thicken in this book! The ending was intense, like the last one :3
I am veeeery pleased with this book *claps hands together with enthusiasm*

I am taken aback by how much I loved it. During this Gallagher Girls binge reading I have been updating some of my friends in group texts and I didn't have any time to update them during this book, because I was too busy crying over EVERYTHING.

The friendships, plot, characters, family dynamics--everything gets bigger and better and I JUST COULDN'T GET ENOUGH. It was amazing and I am very eager to get to the final book.

I did guess some things beforehand though:

That. Was. AWESOME.

Ok. I need this book, like NOW. Wow. So, you know how everyone always says don't judge a book by its cover, read it first.....blah blah. Well, I kind of thought this series looked odd and not something I would enjoy. A friend recommended it, I found the second book at a book sale, and I read the first four. I can't wait fro the fifth book, and since its a good series it will hopefully be worth the wait!! I am SO glad I read these books, I didn't know what I was missing! So now, I am going to ...more
I want to read this book soooooooooooooooooo bad!! I love this series and I hate how the last book was left at a cliffhanger and I still don't know what has happened. Ally Carter needs to write waaaay quicker and focus on one series at a time! I am really disappointed with this author and I hope Gallagher Girls book 5 is really good and worth the wait!

I love the title and the cover!! It just makes me want to read this book more. I started off this series pretty much as soon as the first book

I am in love with this series. I can't help but binge-read the whole series to be quite honest. I am a bit obsessed with the drama and the plot lines and the characters. Ally Carter writes in a way that makes me want to be the characters or run from them. It's so unbelievable amazing. I keep thinking about it all even after finishing the book. And I can't shake the excitement of starting the last book.

I think this is my favorite book of Cammie. Though I love Cammie quite a lot, she was a

Finally, the book that's taken two years, unfortunately. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this was coming out, and then I saw it was still another year away. I was ready to slam my head on my desk. This series is amazing yet she focuses on the series that aren't as popular.

Which brings me to my number one complaint: Who leaves you hanging for two years on a cliffhanger like that?!

This book has so much promise, and will most likely be the second to last or third to last book in the

THIS BOOK WAS A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I have to admit i was furious in the beginning when it seemed Bex and Zach were dating, but then everything cleared up and i was like *sigh* (though i have to admit that i was getting pretty annoyed of Zach always asking Cammie if she was okay and how their conversations went from being witty banter to slightly less depth)

=) I LOVE the fact that Cammie's emotions are so raw in this one. I love how we get to see her mature and feel uncomfortable in her own skin

Ally Carters wildly popular Gallagher Girls series continues with Out of Sight, Out of Time, exposing readers a new, darker side of Cammie and the Gallagher Academy.

Over the course of the past two books, Carter has introduced more and more reality to Cammies life. At the start of the series, she was a sophomore at the prestigious Gallagher Academy, a school for spies. And despite her above average IQ and unique skill set covert operations she was just a teenage girl. She worried about boys,

Phase 5.

At this point, the Operative proceeded from a state of mild shock, to total. This phase of the mission was by far the most intense and most difficult to complete.

Overlooking Asset Morgan's state of being was vicious to the Operative's psyche due to Morgan's decline in her emotional state. The Operative wanted to wrap Asset Morgan in protective bubble-wrap and hide her in the most secure location she could find.

After reading this, I thought back on the first few books and got so nostalgic... Like, how is it even possible that everything was so light-hearted and happy at one point in this series?! This book was just... wow. It was so much darker than any of the other books, but it was seriously so good, guys. There was never a dull moment and I honestly wanted to cry a couple of times. I seriously cannot wait to read United We Spy and see how all of this ends!

6/1/12 Wow. Let me just say it was amazing. AMAZING. It was soooo good. I went out, bought it at Barnes and Noble, started reading it, and finished a few hours later. It was jam-packed with action and excitement and secrets...and, can you hear me hyperventilating with love? I sped through it, and had to know what happened next right away; it was that suspenseful. When I was done, I sat there for a moment, just thinking, "Oh my goodness, I think that was the best book I ever read," and I still ...more

The plot is getting decent.
Cammie was really freaking me out in this one, though. Still not sold on Zach and his kisses. Not really a fan of Townsend either.
When a certain teacher told a certain girl basically how to kill herself, I had to scream "I knew it!" Because, really, I never liked that guy.
Language was overall clean with a handful of 'bloody's and a 'heck'. Blood, killing, pain and blood. (But, again, the author's writing isn't detailed, making you feel like you're missing things.)

“Zach,” I said as I lay there “Where did you go? When you were looking for me?”
I shifted in his arms, looked into his eyes.
“Crazy.” His voice was a whisper against my skin. “I went crazy.”
“You know,' I whispered, 'some girls might think it's creepy having a boy watch them sleep.'

He smirked and pointed to himself. 'Spy.'

'Oh.' I nodded. 'Right. So you're a trained Peeping Tom.'

'Product of the best peeping academies in the country.'
