Sanctuary (1-800-Where-R-You #4)
Knew she wasn't going to be able to hide her psychic powers from the U.S. government forever. But she never thought that she and Dr. Krantz, the special agent brought in to convince Jess to join his elite team of "specially gifted" crime solvers, would have something in common.
When a local boy's disappearance is attributed to a backwoods militia group, it...more
And this is where the shit hits the fan.
Man, this book is so outrageously unrealistic it’s sort of laughable. But at the same reason, that’s why I love this particular installment. Honestly, I could see it as a midseason finale if this was ever to get a proper TV show (not one that simply uses its premises then has the main character regulated to background character and has a guy played by Mateo Santos be Not Rob to Vivica Fox who’s just randomly in the TV show).
It's Thanksgiving! and like the Gilmores Jess has found her self invited to more than one Thanksgiving diner.
Ok only two, she's not quite the over achiever the Gilmore are.
But one is Rob's house, that has got to count for something right?
Wait what! Rob has actually invited her to a date like situation!?! Is this progress? Yes, Yes it is. and we are rewarded with a pretty awesome scene after dinner.
But before we get to that Jess has to endure dinner with her family, including cr ...more

I love Jess. She's a great female lead, telling the story with sarcasm that has me wanting to roll on the floor laughing. She's inde ...more
Jess doesn't want to get involved - she really only wanted to spend Thanksgiving with her almost-boyfriend Rob Wilkins and avoid her aunt Rose as much as possible - but when things start to point toward a local, crazy militia group, Jess decides that what happ ...more

This was the first time in the series that I really wondered how Jess (and Rob) were going to pull things off without ending up dead ...more
Jess Mastriani got hit by lightning, and now she's psychic. So she's been calling in tips to the missing persons line and telling the feds where to find the kids. The FBI wants her to do more, but she told them she lost the gift (which of course they don't believe). And when a local kid shows up dead with strange militia markings on him, Jesse gets drawn into local militia groups and right-wing nuts in general, with the feds following along behind.
WHAT I LIKED:
Not much -- althou ...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
