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
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
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...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
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...more

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...more
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 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
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
Seems like the FEDs aren't the only people who don't believe her, 12-year-old Shane is too sharp & seems to not believe her. With many people asking for her help to find their missing children, she has to smartly think of a way to go undercover.
This second book is as good as the first one, When Lightning Strikes. You...more
That something was most likely the fact that Jess is working at a Summer camp with a bunch of kids. That did not appeal to me, I know that makes me sound bad like I'm anti-kid or something, (just for the recor...more
A la fin du premier tome, elle avait fait croire aux agents spéciaux que son don s'était évaporé, elle ne peut plus agir comme avant sous peine d'être prise sur le fait, et personne ne sait ce qu'il se p...more
Jessica Mastrani has lost his psychic powers to find kids. Or so she told the US Government at the end of the last book and that’s how she wants to keep it. The problem is, she still has the powers and she is still finding kids. These kids though, she’s made sure that they actually want to be found.
In the second book, Jess is dealing with the psychic powers thing while being a counselor at a gifted kids music cam...more
The FBI is still trying to get Jess to work for them, but it looks like Jess might get a break for the summer, as she is in an Orchestra camp (as a counselor if you can believe).
Again some trouble arises from a couple of missing kids and again Jess as to deal with the teenage in love drama.
The love thing isn't spread to thick to be off putting, and the action flows at a really nice rhythm.
My only problem is that we didn't get to see the Orc...more
As far as the plot goes, Jess is as sassy as ever and using her powers in a way which ensures the best outcome.
The descriptions of the children are obnoxious and funny and you really get a feel for the whole atmosphere of the orchestra camp. I love the way Jess deals with the kids and every other problem she faces in this book.
The way the FBI agents have been treatin...more
I did love the camp. Especially the, um, kids Jess looks after. Oh, sweet baby Lionel.
I really laughed at the Un-do-able, do-able and hottie scale.
I have found myself looking at guys the way Jess sees them in these books, Haha. "That guy is totally my soulmate and he doesn't even know i...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?”
