GOOD BYE, LIGHTNING GIRL
All Jessica Mastriani—a problem teen, according to her high school guidance counselor—ever wanted was to be normal. But that changed during a walk home on a particularly stormy day. And suddenly, Jess realized she never knew how good she’d had it before.
Becoming known worldwide as Lighting Girl—a psychic who could find the location of anyone, dead or alive—Jess had no choice but finally to embrace her lack of normalcy, and eventually ended up lending her newfound talent to the US government (not to mention selling her life story to Lifetime to make into a television series that is currently funding her tuition at Julliard).
But her work for the government during the war takes a terrible toll, and Jess returns from overseas a shadow of her former self, her powers gone, Lightning Girl no more.
Starting over in New York City, intent on finding a new life at college, Jess is less than happy when Rob Wilkins, her ex, shows up unexpectedly at the door of apartment Jess is sharing with her best friend Ruth.
But how can Jess, her powers gone, find anyone—let alone the sister of a man she once loved (and believed—however erroneously—loved her back)—when she can’t even find herself?
This is the fifth and final book in Cabot's 1-800-Where-R-You series. I've only read this book once before and I cried. I was excellent. It ended in the only way I would have thought. When I read it again I noticed a bunch of other things. Like how Cabot writes, blank blank blank. blank blank, I mean. She says this a lot in the book but I don't really care. The book is the perfect ending to Cabot's best series. Jessica Mastriani and Rob Wilkins relationship is a great touch. Jess' personality is superb. I just really love this book and the series, also. Great job done Ms. Cabot.
