Out Of Sight, Out Of Time by Ally Carter
New Year. New Look. No Memories. Yup, Cameron Morgan aka The Chameleon, super spy kid extraordinaire, is now a recovering teenage amnesiac.
Yeah, not the senior year Cammie envisioned. Nearly four months after Cammie set off on her quest to find the answers to the ever lingering questions about her father, and The Circle, she resurfaces as a darker deadlier Cammie.
Unfortunately her memories of the past few months don’t come with her. What is apparent is Cammie did the worst thing possible. She Got Caught. Now as she struggles to understand what happened to her, and reconcile the person she was with the person she’s become, Cammie will have to follow the bread crumbs to retrace her steps on an emotional scavenger hunt of her past and reclaim the knowledge to the questions that have haunted her life.
The latest installment of the Gallagher Girls series has Carter’s signature style with a flurish of wit, fun, and romance. But Out of Sight, Out of Time has a more mature voice with harsher undertones that reflect the realities of espionage. Our quirky lovable talented Chameleon enters this book with a darker femme fatale streak. Cammie’s trauma and emotional journey, added so many layers to her character, which I really liked. The romance was long, drawn out, and sweet for readers to savor. Not much growth in the supporting cast but this book is all about Cam and her PTSD. Even with all the emotional development the pacing was nice, there were a lot of action scenes that keeps the reader engaged.
I don’t read a lot of fiction lacking in the supernatural, but I always enjoy Ally Carter’s tales of teenage thieves and spies. She knows how to put a twist in normal and makes the mundane marvelous. It’s been a long wait for this one, and Carter really delivers with a fresh take on her GG series. Every page is a reminder to readers why we fell in love with Cammie and her crew. Adding new depth to her clever quirky wit, Ally Carter will have you consuming words instead of food, awake over sleep, and wanting more well after the end.
