It wasn't her fault. Sixteen-year-old Jessica Mastriani was on vacation when classmate Amber Mackey went missing. How could Jess—even with her newly acquired psychic ability to find anyone, anywhere—have stopped the varsity cheerleader from turning up dead, without having known she was missing in the first place?

But ignorance is apparently no excuse. Most of the student po...more

Deyse (Deyse Says)
This is the third book of the 1-8000-Where-R-You series and it had a different tone. The first two books are more focused on missing people-Jess finding the people dynamic, on this on we started it a little bit different.
The story begins with Jess finding out that one class mate of her had been missing and was found out killed. It took a while to pick up the story (like for us to know the plot) like the second book, but it was very predictable what was going to happen. Besides that I really enjo...more

Another excellent book in the series! I just couldn't put it down, probably the fastest I've ever read a book.

The plot was enticing (though the suspect was still a bit too obvious to me) and I find it hard to have anything negative to say about Jess and Rob as characters. Rob remains perfect, as usual. Their romance is really developing at a pleasing rate. Can't stop rooting for them!

Douglas is so adorable, really. Getting a job was A+ character growth.

Ruth unfortunately only continues to be mor...more

Okay. So that summary, taken right from the back cover of the book, makes it sound like Jess is trying really hard to get into the ‘in’ crowd. Um, no.

This book picks up on the first day of school. Jess is now a junior, and she’s determined to make a good start. She has a new wardrobe, and wants to have a new attitude [aka loosing her anger management issues], and won’t spend every day in detention. Hopefully.

That all changes as soon as she gets to homeroom.

This book, I have to admit, was a littl...more

Okay, can I just say the the name of this series, 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU, is really bugging me? It's too many letters! Why not call it 1-800-WHERE-R-U? I know that's totally petty and not relevant to the quality of the series, but it's the sort of easily-fixed imperfection that just sets my OCD into overdrive.

Other than that, I'm still whipping through these books and (mostly) enjoying them, though they're a bit dated. (Note to authors: if you're going to use slangy dialogue and pop culture referenc...more

I really like this series, it's funny and entertaining with minimal irritation.

I'm kind of wondering, though....what's the deal with the cover? Jessie has short dark hair, so who the hell is that supposed to be? *Laughing*

The last time we saw Jess Mastrani she had just saved a kid from a cave and had discovered that her ESP powers – the ones she received when she got struck by lightning and make her find lost people if she sees their picture before she goes to sleep – have advanced. When she gets back to start her junior year of high school, she goes back with a new attitude and a new wardrobe.

But her new attitude barely lasts a day. The g...more

Jessica Mastriani returns from her summer vacation to discover one of her classmates has been murdered. If that wasn't bad enough, many of Jess's classmates resent her for not being in town to save the girl with her 'Gift'. Then another girl from Jess's school goes missing and it's up to Jess to find her before she ends up dead, too.

This book was the strongest of the series so far. There was a real sense of urgency and I appreciated that the authority figures weren't so much depicted as 'Keyston...more

After Jess got back from working as a camp counselor at Lake Wawasee in Code Name Cassandra, Jess had two choices: work the hot plate at her father's restaurant or go to the Michigan dunes with her best friend Ruth Abramowitz. This may seem like a no brainer choice, but Ruth's dad doesn't believe in cable, won't allow a phone at the house except for his cell for emergencies, and her best friend Ruth is busy going out with her boyfriend the whole time. But when Jess found out that her Great-aunt...more

"Mommy, read me a bedtime story!"
"Sure, honey. Just a sec"

NOT!
I was so tired after beatings of class activities, seemingly endless lecture, and hours of dozing and waiting for a professor to recheck our work (so didn't happen XD). After those, all I want to do is go to my room and dive on my bed and close my eyes
but my tired body didn't level with my mental exhaustion so I decided to read a early (yep, 7:20 pm) bedtime story. I checked my TBR list and find something short…. Oh I gave up and ope...more

Book 3 re-read! If you haven't read books 1 & 2 go and do that right now! You will not be sorry. Helpful link! When Lightning Strikes

Book 3 picks up right around Jess's first day of junior year. She continued being a camp counselor over the summer and then spent two weeks with Ruth at Ruth's parent's lake house. And since this is a time before everyone had a cell phone and Ruth's parents are especially strict on no internet and phones on family vacation away, Jess doesn't hear about how one...more

When yet another cheerleader vanishes, Jess knows she has to help, while simultaneously not reveal to her old FBI friends that she still possesses...more

In the third Jess Mastriani book a killer is stalking Jess's hometown. When one of the cheerleaders ends up dead, Jess feels responsible after learning the girl's friends tried to contact her to find the girl. As Jess tries to prevent another murder and figure out who's got it in for the high school pom-pom crowd, things get even more complicated when the murder becomes a federal investigation overseen by Jess's old pals, Agent Johnson and Smith.

It's not really Jess Mastriani's fault that she didn't know Amber Mackey was dead. After spending most of the summer herding musical prodigies and Camp Wawasee, Jess spent the last two weeks before school started with her best friend's family at the Michigan dunes. How could she have heard that her classmate had been found strangled to death at a local hangout in the limestone quarry? If Amber's death is shocking to Jess, she is even more stunned to find out that most of her classmates at Ernie...more

I thought this book was interesting because it was mysterious and it kept me on the edge of my seat. On the train, when I read, I wouldn't put the book down when it got to my stop. The protagonist, named Jessica was on vacation when a cheerleader named Amber was missing and ended up being dead. People blamed her for Amber's death because Amber could have been saved. Jessica being the detective she is, kept her eye on Mark, Amber's boyfriend at the time. Then another cheerleader went missing and...more

I thought this book was amazing it is perfect if you like romance and suspens!! it was definitely one of meg cabot best book series!!! the character she made Jess Mastriani is such an ellaborate character it was hard not to get sucked into this book.

Will jess find her missing classmate?

Jess the protagonist was on vacation when her fellow school mate Amber, who was a cheerleader was murdered. Everyone blamed Jess because if Jess had not been on vacation then she would be able to use her powers and tell everyone where Amber was before she was killed. But how was Jess supposed to know? Suddenly, Ambers boyfriend is always talking to her about Amber, and before you know it they get close. Then another cheerleader is missing. Amber wants to redeem herself but she doesnt want others...more

Book 3 in the 1-800-WHERE-R-U series.

This book started off a little bit darker than the previous two, with Jess returning to school to find that something terrible had happened while she had been away on vacation. And everyone was blaming her.

This one felt like it hit a lot closer to home because it involved Jess’s classmates and people she knew.

So Jess throws herself into trying to find out just who killed Amber, and who had taken the young boy to redeem herself in the eyes of her fellow studen...more

I loved this book so much that I can not stop smiling. It was all sad with the kidnapping and the death thing but it was also a really interesting story. I could not believe that the person who turned out to be the criminal was under every ones nose the whole time. It was actually better than the previous book and I found Rob and Jess relationship really different. It' just so different and the way Rob is always there when Jess needs him even though he says he does not want to get in the whole r...more

A super fun read. Murder, mystery, ESP, the FBI, bikers, and Italian - American food! Who knew high school could ever be so fun? Plus I actually did NOT predict the ending! Besides it being a happy one of course ;D

Warning! Major spoilers here!


This time trouble hit just way too close to home. One of Jess's class mates got missing and died just before Jess came off of her no outside world access vacations. And while Jess is feeling guilty another one of the popular kids get missing.
And Jess can't help but stick her nose in it. Luckily Rob comes in her help. The this about this books to me is that it doesn't feel like Jess is a damsel in distress and Rob is her white knight in shiny armour. It feels like Jes...more
