Sixteen-year-old Jessica Mastriani doesn't like being called "Lightning Girl," or being used by the F.B.I. for her extra-sensory perception. She only wants to enjoy a "normal" summer working as a camp counselor--oh, and to win the affections of Rob, a guy who takes her for granted. Feigning loss of her abilities, Jessica heads for Camp Wawasee, where gifted and talented children come to make music together. There she accepts responsibility for a cabin full of difficult boys. A counselor by day, Jessica works secretly with the secretary at 1-800WHERE-R-YOU by night, using her powers to find missing children. With a white van on her trail and loud-mouthed campers in her care, Jessica finds it difficult to keep her secret. Unable to turn her back on the newest missing girl, Jessica gets caught in a web of trouble and tangles with the camp director, a murderous stepfather, the FBI, and Rob. Writing as Jenny Carroll, Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and the Mediator series, creates yet another outstanding YA character and a compelling, contemporary plot in this intriguing second book of the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series. It's a true find! Lynne Remick, Freelance Reviewer, Nesconset, NY
