United We Spy by Ally Carter

Well, it's the end of an era.

There are certain series you just can't stand to see end (Deathly Hollows, anyone?). For me, Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls is most definitely one of them. I could always count on those Gallagher Girls for a fun adventure. But sadly, it's all over.

Author Ally Carter concludes her series in the best way possible. UNITED WE SPY (Disney-Hyperion, Sept 2013) ties up loose ends while ratcheting up the action to 007 levels. Now that Cammie has escaped from the Circle of Cavan, it looks like she's going to have to track them down to stop them from carrying out a cataclysmic plan. Finding all the hidden members before Zach's mother murders them will be no easy feat, especially when Cammie's entire family, all her friends, and her school are in danger.

Hey, isn't senior year supposed to be all about relaxing and waiting for graduation? Not when you go to the Gallagher Academy.

There are twists. There are reveals. There is non-stop action and moments that will make any GG fan a bit teary eyed. Turning that last page is tough, but satisfying.

And luckily, Carter's HEIST SOCIETY series is just as good. And with the EMBASSY ROW to look forward to, it may be the end of the GG books, but there's no doubt Ally Carter will just find new ways to entertain us.
