Opening LinesMy name is Jessica Mastriani. You might have heard of me. It’s fine with me if you haven’t, though. In fact, I kind of prefer it that way.

Favorite Characters: Jess & Rob


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


First off, I absolutely loved this book. When I found out it almost wasn’t written . . . Well, that would have been a bleak moment for humanity. Or, at least, for me. And probably a few other fans. I digress.

Rob and Jess . . . Rob has truly proved himself, and doesn’t let me down in this final installment. Jess is as awesome as before. Oh, how I’ll miss these characters!

The plot, like that of books 1-4, is simple, yet doesn’t drag in the slightest. Full of twists and turns, romance, and annoying siblings, this book has a bit of everything. I love the humor it’s written with-even in the most suspenseful moments, Jess can make me laugh.

This is exactly the type of book I wanted to read right now. I give Missing You 5/5 stars. It’s a quick, fun read that will satisfy every question you have about the series. You even find out about Rob’s probation. 😉
