A few years ago, Jessica Mastrani was struck by lightning, gaining a special ability to find missing persons. When the government found out, she went to work. Finding terrorists, reuniting soldiers with families, finding the lost kid down the street--you know, that sort of thing. Now, suddenly, Jessica's lost her powers. Not that she's complaining. But it's not so easy to become a normal teen again after seeing violent terrorist attacks in Iraq, being featured on newscasts across the country, and having a television series made about your life. And then there's the super-hot, kind of social delinquent ex-boyfriend Jess left behind. There's one benefit to actually having psychic powers--you know when he's going to show up.… (more)

tan bello como la primera vez, creo que me ha gustado mucho más este libro leyéndolo ahora de adulta, que cuando lo hice por primera vez de adolescente. ( )

When I started reading this book I was like "WTF? No!" because it was years later, Jess was 19, and she was in New York with Ruth, Ruth's brother Skip, and Jess' brother Mikey, all of them on break from college. No Rob in sight.

But then there's Rob. At the door. But not saying "I love you, I couldn't live if living was without you," no, he was asking Jess, who had spent a year working for the government in Afghanistan finding terrorists and was having some serious PTSD, to use her powers to find his half-sister. The one she never knew he had, the one he'd only recently discovered. Their reunion was not nice. Honestly, my heart broke for them both because, as Rob told her, Jess really had come back broken and he couldn't help her even if she would have let him.

It turns out her powers aren't gone, as she'd been healing they'd returned, and she woke up the next morning knowing exactly where Rob's sister was. And as I've asked so similarly, where do you go from white supremacists? Teenage pornography and the mafia. Jess, as usual, saves the day with Rob's help. Only this time, in this last book, Jess and Rob get their happy ending, just like Doug, just like Ruth and Mikey.

Rob waited for her. For all those years. He waited. ♥ ( )

Meg Cabot always does a great job with all of her books. I really loved this book series in an unexpected way. I felt like the concept was unique and that this was a great ending for it altogether. Another triumph for Cabot! ( )

I actually really loved this book. I was obsessed with the series, and for some reason had no idea that this fifth book existed, so when I discovered that there was another one, it could have been written about anything and I would have been happy. ( )

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?
