Missing You (1-800-Where-R-You #5)
Ever since a walk home on a particularly stormy day, Jessica Mastriani has had an ability like no other. She became known worldwide as Lightning Girl—a psychic who could find the location of anyone, dead or alive. Jess finally had no choice but to embrace her newfound talent, and ended up lending her skills to the U.S. government.
But her work for them has taken a terri...more
Five fucking stars.
This was so good I'm gonna cry! Scratch that-- I am crying.
Meg Cabot is one of my most favorite authors ever! I don't know what the book world would do without her and her writing, because damn does this woman know how to write a book!
I loved each and every second of it! I LOVED Jess, I loved Rob, I loved Dougie, I loved Ruth, I LOVED Mr. Mastriani, I thought Karen Sue was an alrighty at the end-- I didn't hate her.
OVERALL I loved everything!
I just hated Boobs-As-B...more
I LOVE Jess Mastriani.
I adore Rob Wilkins.
I have loved this series from the first book.
I am soooooooo sad that its over.
I was apparently absent the day in 4th grade where they though you not to start every sentence with "I".
Now that the business has been taking care of, I just adore this series. I can't say enough how much I love a good spunky and snarky heroine, and Jess definitely has that down. She is funny, s...more
After a very long wait, readers will be able to find closure with the last book in one of Meg Cabot's hit series, 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU. Ms. Cabot begins the novel almost two years after the last book. Jessica Mastriana is now at Julliard after the long, tedious days she spent helping the U.S. government find the bad guys during war. Although it did help her country, the things she saw as she was overseas took a toll on her. Instea...more
I've read nearly everything that Meg Cabot has written. While some parts of this series were familiar to me as a Cabot fan (the tough heroine, ready with a punch, the parents that simply don't understand), this series was a real departure from her norm.
In her blog, Cabot has written that 9/11 never happened in Mia's world (the heroine of the Princess Diaries). 9/11 did happen here-...more

I’ve read this book so many times that some of the lines in this book are imprinted in my head. I’ve always like Meg Cabot and her series of Mediator as much as I loved this series. As I’ve been reading the last book of 1-800-where-r-u, I saw how much the story had evolve from simply a girl crushing on a guy who she thinks is hot because he rides a motorcycle and that he goes to detention like her adds to the hotness in him, the girl who punches everyone who irritates her, to the girl who is civ...more

Jess lives in a one bedroom apartment with her best friend since grade school, Ruth. Unfortunately, Ruth's twin brother Skip, and her brother Mike, which isn't goo...more
The book is about a girl who was hit by lightning and then has some kind of psychic power that enables her to find people. But she loses her power after she spent a...more
I am trying to decide which one I like the most The mediator series or 1-800-where-r-you
I find Jess and Rob to be an amazing couple. He is a very sweet guy.
He waited for her and when she came back she was broken so he kept waiting.
I think the book is good. The message, about how Prejudice is bad. Jess's mom Toni had that problem. So Jess gave her an ultimatum.
I think I would love to have a Rob.
I was kind of teary when Rob was telling Jess how f...more
Meg Cabot has been breaking my heart for the past month now because she leaves me with these great plots, only to keep me disappointed at the end of each book I read. This time, however, she didn't. Sort of. I haven't read the first four books of this series, but it is enough for me to learn more about Jess, who has the power to locate missing persons after getting struck by lightning. In this final installment, though, she was trying to live a normal life in New York Ci...more
I mean, she lost her powers... She moved away... No one can find her...
How did everything go frmo being so great in the ending of one book and then start so suckily in the beginning of the sequel.
So what am trying to really say is that, I think that the fifth book could have been made with a better plot... Sigh...
Now I'm kind of scared that the series will end bad for me.
This is so monumental. I mean, it was ideal conditions (really cold, last book in a series, I'd had alot of caffeine and possibly a nap) and so I felt pretty good about it. Unfortunately, the book itself didn't leave a huge impression on me.
It was difficult after reading the whole series in a matter of two weeks to pick up this fifth, and final, book of the series, and have the time line jump ahead a few years. Cabot took the ti...more
It's been months since Jess left to work with the Feds, and her time overseas in war zones has burned her out. Her power is gone (or so she assumes, since she can't sleep throu...more
I know I said in the last review of this series that Sanctuary was my favorite, but I think I changed my mind. I’ve only read Missing You once and even then it was in bits and pieces every time I went to the bookstore – back then my local library sucked with getting the new releases. So after eight years, I finally had the chance to read it again and OMG. This one was definitely my favorite.
It’s been two years since the...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
