Supergirl in Not (1-800-Where-R-You #2)
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 --...more
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.

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.
1> that the little girl who is missing wants to be rescue, and ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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
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 ...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

I looked at his lips. I probably don't need to tell you that they're really nice lips, kind of full and strong-looking.
"What," I wanted to know, "is that going to get me?”
