I think this series is adorable. My 6th grader is currently inhaling them like candy. However, I must admit that this 5th installment is my least favorite of the series so far.
Cammie Morgan has woken up in a convent in Europe. Shockingly, she doesn't know how she got there. On top of that, she can't believe the date. The summer is entirely over and she doesn't remember any of it.
Back home at Gallagher Academy, a spy school for girls, Cammie is desperate to find out what she was doing all summer. Her friends at school, although distant at first, have come around and are trying to help Cammie solve the mystery and to keep her safe from the evil Circle of Cavan.
This book felt a little frantic. It seemed to jump from one thing to the next making it feel choppy and rushed. There was certainly a lot going on, but I felt a little more rattled than entertained. Don't get me wrong, I liked it. I just didn't think the writing was as strong as the others in the series. However, I do think Carter is setting up the series for a great conclusion that I'm definitely looking forward to.
