was dubbed "Lightning Girl" by the press when she developed a psychic ability to find missing children after she was struck by lightning during a huge storm. Now Jess has lost her miraculous powers...or at least she would like the media and the government to think so. All she wants is to be left alone.

But it doesn't look like Jess is going to get her wish --

I could bitch and get really nit picky about some of the music things in this book. And to be honest, I should. I really should. I don’t see how anyone can possibly get into a Musical Festival (Band Camp) or into the top chairs without being able to you know…read music. And it sort of contradicts the earlier book when Jess says that she bought some duets for her and Ruth to play (obviously, she could read music).

Sigh, that aside. Though again fun book.

This book is a tenn book and is the sequel to When Lighting Strikes. By telling a reporter that she lost her physic abilities to find missing people, Jessica thought she got thr FBI off her back, but it just made them follow her everywhere. She still has secret packages from Roesmary (the person from 1-800-WHERERU that Jessica always tell the adresses of missing childrens to)about missing kids that wants to be found.

Book 2 in the series is good.
Jess lied to everyone at the end of book 1, but Agent Smith and Johnson are still tailing her.
Jess is working at summer music camp, and Rob is back home. So I like their non relationship.
Rob is the guy who tries to stay away but when she calls he is there.Always there.
Jess does not want to make the same mistakes and she does not want the Feds to find out the truth, so she needs to make sure of 2 things.

So after reading the first of this series I immediately moved on to this book. Its hard to see think of a place where it stopped, it sort of became a blur. Still different from reading anything else. Again written as if you are reading Jess her diary, which is amusing and refreshing. Luckily there was less of Ruth in this book and Mike and Douglas weren't in it at all.

I was surprised about a few things, where did this camping counselor idea come from and how could she go away for 6 weeks, from R

Once again, it's Ruth's fault. That's how Jess explains her actions when she takes a summer job at Camp Wawasee as a counselor with Ruth. Jess somewhat tries to convince herself that 6 weeks away will do some good, for her and her family.

But it goes South almost immediately when she is reassigned to a boys cabin to cover a sick counselor. Now, she's in charge of 8 surely boys. Of course she finds the trouble maker instantly. Mullet boy, or Shane as she later finds out, is the king of all young j

Jessica Mastriani, feisty heroine of When Lightning Strikes, is back and as cranky as ever in this second installment of the 1-800-Where-R-You series. After being struck by lightning during a freak April storm Jess developed a decidedly odd psychic power. If she looks at a picture of a missing person before she goes to bed, Jess wakes up knowing where that person is now. Exactly where he or she is. Every time. Unfortunately for Jess, having a freaky mutant power isn't all sunshine and roses. Esp ...more
2.5 to 3 stars. Cabot originally wrote this as Jenny Carroll, and with good reason - it's an edgier read with more grit than her Princess Diaries and Mediator series. Her heroine, Jess, cusses, spends a lot of time in detention, and just generally likes life a little close to the edge. Jess isn't a bad girl, but she has a few bad habits. The books are obviously geared toward teens who find the Princess books a little young and want their fiction a little spicier than the Mediator books.

Second in the series. In this adventure Jess (who was stuck by lightening and now knows locations of missing children) is a camp counselor for the summer. Of course a father seeks her to find his missing child. But the more fun is that she gets put in charge of a boys cabin and tries to keep them in line. Of course her motorcycle riding boyfriend shows up to help too. Light read. No big surprises, but I can see why my daughter enjoys Cabots writing. I liked the Mediator series better by Cabot, b ...more

Jess is back and has a job at summer camp in the second installment of Meg Cabot's 1-800-Where-R-You series.

Since lying to the Feds about the loss of her power to find missing people Jess has continued to find missing children who are truly missing and wanting to come home by calling Rosemary at 1-800-Where-R-You. With a system in place to keep using her gift to help the missing kids, Jess feels safe taking a summer job as a camp counselor. Th

Code Name Cassandra picks up right where When Lightning Strikes leaves off. Sixteen-year-old Jess has gotten the press off her back by telling the world her psychic ability to find missing people vanished as quickly as it had arrived, but the feds don't believe her: there's still a white van parked on her street, and she's sure they're bugging her calls. To escape this scrutiny (and also to avoid toiling away at her father's restaurant all summer), Jess takes a summer job as a counselor at a cam ...more
I started with the second book and loved it. You can start anywhere in this series and understand whats going on. Really good plot!
Read this one a few years ago and still remember it. Such a great book. One of my favorites from that period of reading.

Jess is still 16, and still trying to stay under the FBI radar as far as her gift goes. During the summer she's counselor at a summer camp for gifted kids. Although one of the kids recognizes her, she denies she is that same girl he thinks she is.

She's told about another missing kid and locates him, then a guy shows up at the camp and wants her help finding his missing daughter. Jess finds the girl has been taken and she manages to rescue her, but not without getting some other guy really angry

Finally getting around to reading the one Meg Cabot series I haven't yet read. I read When Lightning Strikes about 2 years ago and then I got busy. (Grad school will do that to you.)

This is a series with an interesting premise, but for some reason, it never grabbed my attention the way that Meg Cabot's other series -- such as Mediator, a series about a girl who can see ghosts -- did, which is possibly why it's taken me so long to get around to it. It should also be noted that this series spawned

Jessica Mastriani has two choices: spend her summer working the steam table at one of her family's restaurants or work as a Counselor at an Orchestra Camp for gifted children. Jess chooses the camp. But her fantasy of girly gossip and French braiding sessions is shattered when she is reassigned to a cabin full of rowdy boys--one of whom is the camp bully. And, as icing to the cake, an anxious father appears at her camp desperate for Jess to use her 'gift' to locate his kidnapped five-ye
Code Name: Cassandra is the second book in the 1-800-Where-R-U, but I don't think readers need to read to first book to enjoy this one. Meg Cabot does a great job of providing background information without making it feel like she is rehashing the entire plot though I do recommend When Lightning Strikes if one wants to really appreciate the development of Jess Mastriani as a character.

Jess's life has finally gotten back to normal after being struck lightning, gaining psychic abilities that allow

Code Name Cassandra was a decent sequel to When Lightening Strikes. The plot moved from Jess and Beth’s home town to the camp, which I liked. It was different and we got to see Jess in a new environment as well as learning that music was very important to her. The kids were (all except one) sweet and amusing, adding another element to the story which could have just laid flat and been exceptionally boring, the teen goes to summer camp thing has been done a lot before.

Book 2 re-read!
If you haven't read book one read it! When Lightning Strikes

Book 2 picks up about 3 months after book 1. School is out and Jess's best friend Ruth has convinced her to be a camp counselor at a orchestra sleep away camp.

Things are good, Jess is getting out of town for the summer, away from the headlines she made a few months ago and working the steam tables at her father's restaurant. What about Rob you ask? He seems to be ignoring her and sticking to his you're too young thing. R
Meg Cabot has made me fall in love with yet another one of her books. Taking up just after book one, When Lightning Strikes, lets off, Code Name Cassandra reintroduces the cast of characters. This time, it’s summer, and Jess is looking forward to weeks of french-braiding little girls’ hair, lounging by the pool, and hanging out with her best friend, Ruth.

Of course, for a girl who can figure out where lost children are when she falls asleep, things don’t always go exactly according to plan.

I love

You'd think that after telling the Feds that she had lost her amazing powers and was no longer 'Lightning Girl' that Jess's life would return to normal. Not so. For one, she still has the power to find people just by looking at their picture before going to sleep, and for another, she's stuck at band camp, playing camp counselor for a group of rowdy kids. Worse, Rob, the boy who just might be her boyfriend if he'd get over his whole 'being on probation and dating a younger girl' thing, hasn't ca ...more
In this book, Jess goes to be a councilor at bank camp with her best friend. One of her campers disappears, and she needs to track them down, with the FBI watching her every move. (she has told them she no longer has her powers, but they don’t believe her, so are trying to prove it)

I have to be honest. I struggled through the first book in this series. It seemed to take me forever to read. So much so it took me a lot longer then it should have to get to this book. But. I am a Cabot fan (how coul

Can I just say when Jess turned around and Mr. Larson was in the cave, my heart stopped?

I really think it did. ...

This book didn't keep me wildly interested, but I DID read it in a night, so obviously it's doing something right.

I liked seeing that Jess's powers are getting stronger. I think, that will make for a interesting growth in the series. I'm glad that it is progressing and not just the same repetitive action in each book.

I give it a thumbs up

Book 2 in the 1-800-WHERE-R-U series.

Jess is a little more jaded this time around, she doesn’t want the fame and the hoopla surrounding her special abilities, so.. she simply doesn’t have them any more. Or so she says.

This book puts Jess smack dab in the middle of music camp. The perfect, sweet cottage, a gaggle of giggling girls to mentor, and no one knows she’s Lightning Girl. Yep, that lasted about a minute.

Instead, Jess has been relegated to the darkest, dingiest part of the camp with a gan

Can I just say that I absolutely love Meg Cabot? She's on my top three favourite authors and I just love her work. The way she writes is just so entertaining and interesting, making her novels page turners. I never have the self control to put her book down once I start reading. She is funny but serious when required and I just love this series like I love her other books. ...more
