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.

Usually, the last book of the series is the worst. We usually hate the endings authors paint for our favorite characters. Missing You was nothing like that. This book was fantastic! It ended the series with a sheer bang! Jess seemed to grow up but she wasnt exactly a shell of her young self. I just loved this book and it was the perfect conclusion of the series. Id definitely recommend this to anyone whos on the fence about reading it. Go get a copy!

I have read the all of the Missing books, and I have to say they are amazing. I think that this was Meg Cabot's best work. I liked how the final installment introduced new people, yet still manged to tie up loose threads. The way it was written makes the story seem almost real, since it touches on some real aspects of life, while throwing in other thing to keep it interesting. I especially liked the tension between Rob and Jess, since it made the end better.

This book starts out a few months later after Jess has lost her powers. She is trying to restart her normal life. That is until someone from her past shows up and makes her remember who she used to be.
This book was good, like they all are, but it wasnt the best one in the series. It seemed like it was almost an afterthought. Meg Cabot kind of closed the story in the 4th book and there was really no need for a 5th one. It was nice however to follow the characters after her powers were lost, but not necessary. It seemed kind of like the story had to restart and it was almost like reading a 1st book in a series but you already knew the characters names.
All in all, i liked it, but it wasnt the best out of all 5 books.

This book was written by Meg Cabot, under another pen name.  This entire series is quick paced and fun to read.  If you like science fiction chick lit books this is a good read.  I found the book very easy to get into and finished it quickly.

I loved this book. Lightening has always fascinated me and to have it incorrperated into a book is great. The main characters sassy attitude makes me laugh. I like how she stands up for herself and those around her. I love that she takes her ability in stride and uses to help others
