United We Spy by Ally Carter
Release: September 10, 2013
Wow. This series, one in which I have been invested since seventh grade and one of my all time favorites, is really ending. Already, I feel nostalgic and am overwhelmed with a twisted sense of satisfaction and sadness that comes from saying goodbye to beloved characters.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.
The thing I like best about this cover is the way it conveys that emotion. The graduation gown and diploma fit so well, hinting that the students of the Gallagher Academy are ready to face the next stage in their spying lives, ready to confront the Circle of Cavan no matter the danger it poses, and ready to leave their home of four years. They, too, must move on, just as we as readers will. This cover is poignant. It's scary. It's descriptive. And it makes me want to read the book both more and less at the same time.
