Goodreads summary:
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.

What I thought:
I've talked to quite a few people about this series. The first book felt a little young for me, even though I loved all the spy elements, but then as each book was published I found that the characters matured as their stories unfolded. Each book has just gotten better and better. I thought Ally couldn't top the last Gallagher Girls' book, but I was wrong. This final book of the series was just as good and I loved it!

So I feel like the characters in this series are kind of like old friends. When you read about them over a couple of years and see how they've changed and grown up during these years and the experiences they've had, they tend to feel that way. I have to say that I'm sad to see this series end, but I also think it's time. They've graduated and are now out in the world as adults.

I love all the characters in this series, but I love Cammie the most, of course. She has had a tough road, but she is just an amazing character and continues to persevere and outsmart her enemies, even when she might not exactly know who they are. I do feel that she wouldn't be who she is without those that surround her, though. Bex, Liz, and Macey each have their own roles and are amazing characters themselves. Then you have Cammie's mother, Mr. Solomon, Abby, Townsend, and many more. I also really love Zach. I love that he really sees Cammie, understands her, and is her perfect counterpart. None of the characters are perfect. They have things that have happened in their past, some of which are still playing out in their lives, but they've chosen a side, are sticking with it, and with each other.

The plot is pretty fast in this one, as all of these books have been. You don't necessarily know who to completely trust and what will happen next. You just know Cammie and her crew will be in the middle of it and hope that somehow they will still be there in the end. How Ally contrives these plots and makes them work so well, I don't know, but she does an amazing job! You should definitely be warned that the ride is quite intense and you won't want to stop until you're at the end of the book.

Do you like books about spies, impossible odds, amazing characters, friendship, and a little romance? Then this book is definitely for you! I also highly recommend it, really, to everyone!

Content: Some violence, but I would consider this clean.
