Book Description

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 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Juggernaut December 28, 2006
Wow. I have been waiting for this book for years, and I finally got hands on it a couple days back. Once again, Meg Cabot strikes, and she strikes hard. This was an awesome, AWESOME book. Crap. I'm speechless. I just love how things turned out. The plot was very well-written, with more Jess-and-Rob adventures, and the readers once again get to experience the romance between them, and we FINALLY get to find out why Rob was on probation (and it is a very funny situation).

Yeah, well, if you liked the past four books in the series, this one definitely won't disappoint. Heck, I think this one was the best out of all the books (although I liked #4 a lot, too). So just read it. :)

Now and then,

the Gibbler

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era... January 11, 2007
Nineteen-year-old Jessica "Jess" Mastriani has had a trying few years. First, she was struck by lightning when she was sixteen-years-old, which gave her the ability to locate missing children/people in her sleep, dubbing her "Lightning Girl," and basically making her feel like even more of an outcast than before. Then, she was dragged off to Afghanistan in the midst of the war, to help the FBI locate various people and terrorists, which did nothing more than screw-up her psyche, and leave her with night terrors. But finally, after all this time, Jess is finally starting to feel like herself again. Not only is she sleeping through the night - peacefully - but she's living in a one-bedroom apartment in New York City with her BFF Ruth, as she attends Juilliard, where she is training to be a concert flutist. But now, with the summer amongst them, Jess has decided to work with underprivileged kids, teaching them to play the flute - the only thing that actually brings her joy. But then Rob Wilkins shows up. The infamous Rob who strung Jess along for all those years, then left her alone when she needed him the most. The Rob who Jess is still crushing on. The Rob Jess left back home in Indiana. But, suddenly, Rob is standing outside her apartment door in the grimy city, asking her to help him locate his fifteen-year-old half sister, Hannah, whom he just discovered existed. Jess would do anything to help Rob in his quest to find his sister, even though he tossed her aside like yesterday's news, but with her powers long-gone, Jess knows it will be impossible to track anyone. After all, she's having a problem finding herself, how on earth can she be expected to find anyone else. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ending to a Great Series December 28, 2006
By Shaadi
I loved this book. The story line focused mostly on the relationship between Jess and Rob, but there were seperate storylies (although less detailed) about Ruth, Mike, Douglas,and Rob's half-sister Hannah. I enjoyed reading the book and think that it provides closure to all the major questions in the story. Though everything did turn out a little too conviniently for all characters, I still believe this book is worth owning and reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too January 8, 2007
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. Instead of being able to dream about missing people, now Jess only dreams about the horrible scenes she saw during the war. This ultimately leads to her losing her powers.

But now that is all behind her. It's summer and Jess is living with her best friend, Ruth, along with Michael and Skip, and is helping to teach kids how to play a musical instrument. All Jess wants to do is to forget about the past and start over.

Unfortunately, her plans are ruined when her ex-boyfriend Rob flies all the way to New York to see her. But it's not to ask her to get back together with her--more like Rob needs Jess to help him find his sister, who just went missing. Before she knows it, all the things that Jess wanted to forget come crashing back. But with her powers supposedly gone, how can she help Rob, the one person she especially wants to forget about?

After the long wait, we expected for this series to end with a bang, and Ms. Cabot does not disappoint. MISSING YOU is the perfect ending to the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series, tying up all loose ends and resolving all problems, leaving the reader with no unanswered questions. Most characters return in the story, and even a surprise romance begins. Readers will root for Jess until the very end, while falling head-over-heels for Rob all over again. The only sad part is, now the series is completely over!

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied yet sorry to see it end... January 31, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After a year of working for the U.S. government in their war against terror, things for Jess have finally returned to some semblance of normal. Normal if you consider that Jess returned suffering from night terrors, post-traumatic stress and the loss of her lightning girl ability to find people simply by looking at a picture of them. Jess is now working hard to put the past behind her until her former boyfriend, Rob, shows up at her front door needing her help. Seeing Rob again brings many old feelings and memories back to Jess, but will it be enough to pull her all the way back to herself?

I read the first four books of the 1-800-Where-R-You series this past summer and loved them. This last book, while being much, much different, was not a disappointment. I got the impression that the author was feeling driven to write about something on the serious side of the current events without being preachy and this was her outlet. I enjoyed the story and although I was sad to see the series end, it was a satisfying resolution.

why was rob on probation?
It is mentioned in Missing You; I don't know if you want someone to tell you or not, so I'll leave the answer out. If you read on, he talks about it.

I agree. The last book, while tolerable and good, could have been a million times better. I didn't think the series was close to being finished and that gap was...well, pretty bogus if you ask me. Meg Cabot copped out. I think she was already done with the series and did not try very hard.
