Synopsis: 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 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.
Review: The thing about the Gallagher Girls books is that the interval between each book's publication is so lengthy that I always forget what happened in the previous book. Luckily, that's okay, because Cammie doesn't remember either. She's lost her memory and that's eating her alive.
This book is definitely the darkest in the series. I remember the first book was so light and fun. I mean, it was about a girl spy falling in love with a boy. Very cute, right? But now, the series has turned slightly serious. This book has memory loss, torture and secrets.
When characters lose their memory, I have a tendency to get very frustrated with them. But that didn't happen in this book. I still liked Cammie. She was very likable despite her situation, and I liked how she tried her best to be proactive. I could definitely understand her emotions, though her actions were sometimes a bit crazy (which was explained in the end).
The plot in this book is fast and furious. It really is a race against time as Cammie tries her best to regain her memory. Things come in flashes and Cammie has to piece together all the clues that she left behind during the summer. It was mysterious, absorbing, and addicting. The pages turned themselves.
Out of Sight, Out of Time is an enjoyable addition to the Gallagher Girls series. Engrossing, dark, and humorous, this book is sure to please Ally Carter fans.
