Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Title: Out of Sight, Out of Time
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 294
Published: March 2012
Rating: 5/5
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.

My Thoughts: Cammie has woken up in a place that she doesn't know and has no idea how she got there. After getting back to school without any memory of what she did over the summer she will start to put together the pieces of flashbacks and evidence that she gets to know what she did. Over the course of the book she will learn things that she may want to forget about.

We start off in the same place as Cammie without knowing anything of what happened during her summer. Everyone that she talks to someone they tell her it's best to leave it alone but of course she doesn't listen to them and starts looking for answers. She develops as a character and I really liked how she reacted to a certain thing that happened. There were a lot of mysteries that she didn't know and went on a mission to know them and also know herself.

I have to say that this was the darkest book in all. Comparing it to the first book which was light and with a boyfriend problem this was more a story of the darker secrets that we have been learning about. Things start to get clearer with the answer of why the Circle of Cavan has been wanting Cammie. And that end? Intense! Seeing how they figured things out was interesting since we were seeing things from Cammie's point of view.

For me this was the best book out of all five. We finally get answers to some of the questions that have been going on for a while. If you haven't read this series you really should. All the books have gotten better and everything that happens keeps you reading until you finish the book. Definitely a great book! =)
