Out of Sight, Out of Time is the fourth and most recent book in the Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter.

The Gallagher Girl series is about a girl named Cammie Morgan who goes to a private school for girls. The Gallagher Academy is no ordinary school; it is a school for spies.

Throughout the series, Cammie unearths many truths, including that boys are complicated creatures, a school for assassin boys exists, her father disappeared trying to unhinge a secret society called The Circle, and that some spies are just plain bad.

The Gallagher Girl series is very much a young girl’s series and is not intended for male enjoyment. The series could be appreciated by a high school girl, but only as a book to kill time with mild entertainment.

As the series has progressed, the books have decreased in their ability to capture readers’ sympathies and interests. This last book was the greatest disappointment yet.

The book over all was a considerably inadequate piece of work. Compared to its predecessors, Out of Sight, Out of Time was anti-climatic with a jumbled story line and random plot changes.

Carter’s characters seem to have reached their depth limits. I felt no emotions towards the struggles of our so called heroines.

Cammie and her three best friends still have more mysteries left to solve, but I hope for the sake of sales that Carter ends the series with one half-decent final book.

I give the book two out of five stars, the second star out of respect for the first half of the series being remotely interesting.

This book is great for before bed because it is not difficult to put down and it will clear your mind and leave you sleepy for bed.
