Author: Meg Cabot
Rating: 5/5
Summary: Ever since a walk home on a particularly stormy day, Jessica Mastriani has had an ability like no other.

But her work for them has taken a terrible toll, and Jess resurfaces months later a shadow of her former self, her powers gone, Lightning Girl no more. Her only hope is starting over in a new place, a big city where nobody knows her. It's only when Rob Wilkins unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep that she's forced to face her past. Rob, all the way from back home, needs her help. But how can Jess, her powers gone, find anyone, let alone the sister of a man she once loved . . . when she can't even find herself?
Missing You, the fifth and final book in the 1-800-Where-R-You series

My Thoughts: This book is the final book in the 1-800-Where-R-You series, by Meg Cabot. I think it's the best one. After Jessica Mastriani is hit by lightening, she discovers that she has unique powers to find the location of any body, whether they are dead, or alive. After using her powers to find missing people she can't help but know their whereabouts, she ends up helping the US government, with the war. Working for them does not work for long, because 6 months later, struck by the horrors of war, Jess's powers disappear, and she returns home, a shadow of her old self. She's attending Juilliard, and sharing an apartment with her best friend and brother, lying to herself about what she really wants, and she hasn't had much contact with her family and friends back home. Then Rob Wilkins shows up, her old boyfriend who she has always loved- and asks for her help. They go on a mission to find Rob's missing sister, and along the way, Jess begins to "repair" herself, and start to understand things she's never understood about Rob before. 

So it's a very good book. There's some mystery, fantasy, and romance in it, and I really reccomend it!!! (You should read the whole series, but this one is the best of them all)  And on a final note,
