Goodreads Synopsis:
 
Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.

My Review:
And here we are. After five awesome books, countless amazing scenes, several badass teen spies and just a few unforgettable romances, we are at the sixth and final book in the emotional rollercoaster that is the Gallagher Girls series. 

United We Spy picks up near the start of the Cammie’s final semester at the Gallagher academy. But of course, it’s not simply a case of being able to have a normal semester, because the Circle of Cavan is still up to no good.

The story follows Cammie, Zach and the girls as they make the hard decision to go on alone in the mission to stop Catherine, Zach’s mother, from continuing her own mission of killing the former Circle leaders.

Cammie and the gang end up in some of their toughest situations yet and I was on edge a lot of the time, knowing that things could (and probably would) go wrong at any minute. I literally spent the other night telling myself that I’d go to sleep at the end of that chapter, and then I found myself staring at the clock at 2am, wondering where the time went.

I cannot express how much I love the characters in this series. I am going to miss all of them. Cammie and Zach are definitely one of the best couples in a book series I have read, because they’re so different to the other young adult couples! Nothing in their lives are certain and they know that the lives they have are dangerous, meaning that when they say goodbye to each other, they don’t know whether it’s for a day, week or even a lifetime. There are some moments between the two of them that make you want to bury your face in a pillow and squeal for a bit before you carry on reading.

I could talk about this book all day, but that would lead to spoilers, and I’m not going to spoil a thing for you. I always find it pretty hard to keep a review of a final book in a series spoiler free.

So what else can I tell you without spoiling you? There is plenty of that awesome, kickass action that the Gallagher Girls never fail to bring. Each girl has her own battle to deal with throughout the story but they are there for each other, as always. I am really going to miss the awesome foursome that is Cammie, Bex, Macey and Liz.  

As such a huge fan of this series, I cannot even begin to describe my love for this final book. Carter has closed the series in such a perfect way and even though I’m sad there’ll be no more books to look forward to, I’m left completely satisfied with the ending.

Thank you Ally Carter for your fabulous series!
