When Lightning Strikes (1800-Where-R-You # 1)

Title: When Lightning Strikes (1800-Where-R-You # 1)
Author: Meg Cabot
Rating: 5/5
Summary:Fire in the sky 

Just because her best friend wants to exercise, Jessica Mastriani agrees to walk the two miles home from their high school. Straight into a huge Indiana thunderstorm. 

And straight into trouble. 

Not that Jess has never been in trouble before. Her extracurricular activities, instead of cheerleading or 4-H, include fistfights with the football team and monthlong stints in detention — luckily, sitting right next to Rob, the sexiest senior around. 

But this trouble is serious. 

Because somehow on that long walk home, Jessica acquired a newfound talent. An amazing power that can be used for good...or for evil. 

Run, Jessica. Run.

My Thoughts: When Lightening Strikes, by Meg Cabot, is one of my other favorite books known to man. . Reading each page was a freaking turn. Though, I do have to admit, that when I first picked it up, I thought I wasn't going to like it. In this book Jess Mastriani is a typical girl who has really had rough edges. She get's into fights with students who make fun of her brother, get detention, but she is a nice girl- if you don't make her mad, that is. Jess is a sixteen year old , a girl with the psychic power to find missing people. How did she get her powers? She got electrocuted one day, after school, while both her and her friend were walking home. And after that one storm, that one zap, everything Jess Mastriani knew had changed. She started to find missing children -dead or alive- on the back of the missing posters on the milk cartons. Who knew that after a few calls to the missing hot line that Jess would get a few visitors.....

What more can you say, Meg Cabot is an amazing writer and I love her books. She's down right hilarious and her plots make me imagine as if I were there with the characters. And what more can I say, this book would be a good choice for those who love science fiction, action, and humor. Can't beat anything better than that.
