When Lightning Strikes (1-800-Where-R-You) by Meg Cabot

When Lightning Strikes (1-800-Where-R-You) by Meg Cabot
Publication Date: January 9, 2007
Versions: paperback, kindle

Summary (from goodreads):
Jess Mastriani was misunderstood by her teachers and had a crush on the local bad boy, but that didn't mean she was trouble. But trouble found her when she survived a lightning strike and discovered that a newfound talent had been bestowed upon her.


Now, whenever she sees a picture of a missing child, Jess knows exactly where he or she is when she wakes up the next morning. Reuniting lost children with their desperate parents is one thing, but Jess must choose whether to use her power for good...or for evil.

Jess is one of the most hilarious and strong characters I have ever read about. Meg Cabot captures her voice perfectly while making the book fun to read and also suspenseful. Jess is a short girl (only at five feet) who literally punches anybody who disses her brother or friend. So when some dumb jock calls her friend fat, Jess can't help but beat him up. But her friend takes the comment to heart and makes them walk home from school in a soon to be thunder storm. Even though that the cutest guy from detention asks her if she wants a ride, she declines it so she doesn't ditch her friend. But then during the thunder storm, Jess gets hit by lightening and it gets trapped inside her. Now she can wake up and know where missing people are.

Jess in detention is overall my favorite part in the book, because she's as tough as the guys. And one guy (who Jess has a serious crush on) takes notice. But their age difference gets in the way-so will Jess be able to persuade him to give their relationship a try?

Will I reread it?
I'm thinking about doing so right now. I loved every second of this book. And I am so glad this is a five book series-so Jess's story can continue.

Jess is an awesome heroine, I think I end up re-reading this series once a year, that' how awesome it is - this and Mediator also by Meg Cabot.

I love how loyal he is to her friends and family.

So glad you liked this series, it's one of my favorites! I think I have read this particular book close to 10 times! The first time I borrowed it from the library I read it two times in a row, then my favorite parts a third time :P
