It’s spring semester of senior year and Cammie and her friends are closer than ever to discovering who is behind the Circle of Cavan and what they are up to once and for all. This search, of course, involves boys, prison, gunshots, world travel (via their super-rich roommate’s private jet) and confronting those who want them dead. What the girls soon realize, again, is that running toward something isn’t always necessary. Sometimes the key has been in your midst all along. But will that key help them save their country in time? These Gallagher Girls have been through a lot in their years together, but none has ever considered giving up. And this time is no different. What is different is the girls having to squeeze in time for career and college planning. And, of course, graduation.
This is the final book in the Gallagher Girls series and I am very sad to see it end. As the Harry Potter and Twilight series concluded, I was thankful to at least still have the Gallagher Girls. Oh, well.
This book, and the series overall, are great. Each book is clean so it is a series that I could just lean into and enjoy without worrying about content. And like the fifth (Out of Sight, Out of Time), United We Spy deviated mildly from how the first four are set up, which I liked. The girls left campus more and really began to spy and use what they had been taught for years. The ending is satisfying, at least for me, and it tied up all of the loose ends. For a while I was quite confused by the story line. “Wait, which team is this person on? Is she good or bad?” But in the end everything was explained sufficiently and all of my questions were answered.
