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.

Cindy's Review: 
At First Glance/The Cover:
She's finally graduating! We've come to a conclusion of this teen spy's years. I've waited for the ending of the Gallagher series for years. Not that I was waiting for it to end. At the end of book 5, Out of Sight, Out of Time, we learn that it's time for Cammie to hunt down the Circle of Cavan. This is exactly what the 6th book is for, to clean off the bad guys.

I haven't done a book review in 3 months! Forreal. Since October. So sorry for my rusty review skills. Not that I was good to begin with anyways.

The Characters/My Opinons: 
Cammie - Of course, the chameleon, our main character. The one that graduates. The one that was sought after bad the Circle of Cavan. Now it's her turn to end their treacheries. 

In this finale, we follow Cammie to meet and stop the Circle of Cavan leaders. The two main villains are Preston's dad and Zach's mom. Not getting into details, but those two cause a whole lot of trouble in the final book. 
  
And yes, Zach is definitely there. Yay! The perks. But yannoe, Zach kind of got more serious. Certainly loss some of his playfulness. Kinda miss that. But we still get to read from Cammie's funny, teenager-ish attitude. I love that about her.

This ending was kind of the last of the killings. It wasn't exactly a hurried ending. But then Cammie, Liz, Macey, Bex, and Zach was definitely trying to finish their mission. And let's not forget Preston. Of course, even after everything, they have to face against the final challenge of Zach's mother. 

Final Thoughts:
This final conclusion was satisfactory. Even though Out of Sight, Out of Time basically told us what was going to happen, I really wanted Cammie to turn out to be someone special. Someone more special than just being a girl who has a list of names in her mind. Maybe royalty or something. I dunno.

The true ending of United We Spy is kind of what everyone predicted. Literally. I read numerous fanfics like this ending. You don't even know how similar the real is ending is to fans' ideal ending. Of course, without the marriage and the babies. 

But Ally Carter does leave us something to hang on to. That means she just might write a companion series. Ally introduced us a young, freshman Gallagher Girl. Her name is Amirah. And I think she's actually royalty or something, but she has a future. And plus, Cammie's in college. Who knows what can happen in colleges where she's not in a spy school. Accessibility to normal guys, durr. But she has Zach. :)   

I would like for the series to end as it is though. Although I kind of wouldn't mind an intro into Cammie's college life.

The Rating: (1-10): 9.5~
Oh. It ended. *cries. It's like my daughter is graduating and leaving me for college. I don't even know the feeling of having a daughter. What I just said didn't even make sense. But truly, I understand a parent's feeling of saying good-bye to their children, even though they can see (reread) them anytime. 

Happy Reading~
