Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare

3 out of 5

A tragi-comedy full of scandal, one of Shakespeare's lesser known plays will have you sweating like a whore in church, literally. The story is one of endless scandal and double standards. The story starts with the Duke leaving on a "journey". In his place he puts Angelo, who is strict to a fault, but also untested. The crime? Sex out of wedlock, and everyone in the play in involved! Lots of disguises, tongue in cheek, and play on words, if you like Shakespeare, this is a good one!
United We Spy (Gallagher Girls #6)

5 out of 5

Senior year. Graduation in imminent, but for Cammie and her friends, it might be the last thing on their minds. The only thing on Cammie's mind is the Circle and their plan. As they track down member after member, people are dying and no questions are being answered. Then things get dangerous. Preston and his dad are taken into coustedy, and the only person they will talk to is Cammie. But then when the Senator gets killed right in front of Cammie's eyes things get dangerous. Not to mention World War 3 is about to start unless the girls, and Zach, can save the world one last time.

Endings are always bitter sweet, and this one was no exception. I never wanted it to end, but at the same time, I couldn't stop myself from reading it! Ally Carter stayed true to herself and her story, and it was just as good as I expected. Now the story, was one that I didn't. World War 3, secret hideouts, raging fires, there was no way I could have predicted all of that. The only thing, and I mean only, is that in my opinion, there was not enough Zach. I am a sucker for a good romance, and Zach and Cammie just didn't have enough chances to be cute while they were saving the world.
