I own this and the other volume that holds books 3 & 4 (gotta love Costco). Jessica is kick-butt awesome, so is her friend Ruth, but less kick-butt and more just "awesome". I love her weird family (especially her mother); they sure keep things interesting. This is on my real-life book shelf of favourites, and I believe is currently in position #3 or #4.

NOTE: Books 3 and 4 are good too, but they have much darker themes and topics. They kinda creep me out, so I don't read them at night. :P

At first I didn't think this book would be all that great, because it didn't really seem interesting at first about how this girl got struck by lightning, and then she has the ability to locate missing children. But this book is really good! Although it took me a while to get used to it, but it was a really really good book. And I really like Meg Cabot's books, and this was ONE of her bests so far!

"Yeah?" I said starting to get pissed. "Well guess what? I'm not a normal girl, am I? I'm about as far from normal as you can get, and you know what? I happen to like who I am, so if you don't, well, you can just-"

"What was that?" I shouted as Rob accelerated.
"A helicopter," Rob shouted back. "Just a little diversionary tactic to confuse the enemy."
"You'll blow up a helicopter," I said, "but you wont go out with me?" I couldn't believe it. "What is wrong with you?"
