Book Review: United We Spy by Ally Carter (Gallagher Girls #6)


Title: United We Spy

Author:  Ally Carter

Series: Gallagher Girls #6

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Release Date: September 17, 2013

Book 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.

Wow! It feels like I have been waiting 4 years for this book – ever since I read Book 3 thinking I was reading the third book of a trilogy – ha! ha! Instead we were introduced in Book 3 to the woman on the roof in Boston, we found out who the woman is in Book 4, we found out what she was capable of in Book 5, and finally we have Book 6!

Book 6 doesn’t disappoint! It does a great job of bringing all the characters and story lines together and answering questions that have been lingering throughout the series! I don’t think Ally Carter has any plans to write any more Gallagher Girl books, but at the end it felt like she left it open to come back and write more Zach and Cammie adventures (Please! Please!)… I was ready for this series to end (I feel like I’m always in the middle of a cliffhanger waiting for the next book), but I was not ready to say good-bye to Zach, Cammie, Bex, Macey, & Liz! I am really going to miss reading about all the spies-in-training at Gallagher!

This book was packed with a lot of action as Cammie and Company went chasing after members of the Inner Circle! I kept wondering what happened to Grant and Jonas from Book 2 – they do make a cameo appearance in this book (again future books with missions that include Grant and Jonas would be pretty cool — Please! Please!)! We find out who Zach’s father is, and I have to say that I didn’t see that one coming! Liz’s graduation speech was a classic and a brilliant ending to their high school years!

I accidentally started this series with Book 2 (I was at my sister’s house and it was on her shelf and I read it – not realizing it was a Book 2), and that’s the book that hooked me! My favorite books in the series are Books 2, 4, 5 and 6! So if Book 1 doesn’t grab you, go ahead and give Book 2 a chance…

Here are the books in order (you really should read these books in order):

GG1: I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You
GG2: Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy
GG3: Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover
GG4: Only the Good Spy Young
GG5: Out of Sight, Out of Time
GG6: United We Spy

If you are the kind of person who likes to wait until all the books are out in a series (which is the kind of person I am quickly becoming — I’m getting too old and too impatient for cliffhangers), then here is another great – and complete – series for you to enjoy!

Rating: 5 stars!
Content: Clean, some kissing



  1. I’ve been soooooo waiting for this book!!! I’ve even introduced my youngest daughter (age 11) to these books. They’re clean and fun, and just as I expected, she loves them.

  2. I am so excited for this book! I have it on hold at the library. They better get it in soon!

  3. Same here! Can’t wait! 🙂
