I think the book is good The message, about how Prejudice is bad is used in a good way Jess s mom Toni had that problem So Jess gave her an ultimatum.

This isn t a bad book but there is a big disconnect between it and the other four books.
To be fair there were a lot of outside factors contributing to the disconnect The fact that this book was published years after book four The fact that it was originally intended on being a long series and Cabot had to stuff the end into one book.
So, those factors contributed it was a nice send off.
Not the best send off though.
I really wish the 1800 series would ve been given two books not one by Harper to finish things off But beggars can t be choosers.
I think by itself Missing You isn t that bad It has a nice well rounded plot perfectly predictable, but good enough And the characters aren t awful.
But they aren t themselves either.
It almost seems like during the years in between the publication of Sanctuary and Missing You, Meg sort of lost sense of these characters And I know, it was probably because of the time jump, but I just didn t like it.
I didn t like Jess s mad punching skills being reduced to nothing seriously, she can t defend herself at the end, Cabot, for reals And Rob was acting just weird.
Sorry, the I reflect on it that scrapbook thing was sort of creepy.
It s not the worst finale in the world, but after binging on the four previous installments it just sort of sticks out.
And I ll admit, when I first read this book I was in awe but now I m just sort of over it.
original review posted here.
5Okay, so for those who don t know 1 800 Where R You is a series about Jess, who was a normal girl until she got hit by a lighting and started finding people and this is the last book of the series.
The first thing that put me off on this book was the fact that it had passed so much time since the last one On the fourth one Jess isn t even finished with high school or is old enough to officially date Rob but them we start this one and years had passed, Jess had went to the army and was all messed up and I didn t even knew why she was messed up I mean, in theory I knew, but I would have liked to read about that time too.
Taking that away I had a great time with this book, as I always have with the books on this series or just Meg Cabot books in general, really We have a new case and Jess has a lot of things to cover but most important, SHE IS FINALLY OLD ENOUGH TO DATE ROB So yeah, lots of interesting things, super recommended to lovers of this series or of Meg Cabot books.
Where to begin This book was wonderful It s about Jess Mastriani, Lightning Girl as she is known to the world, she went off to work for the government but it took a cost She lost her powers to find people She came home and saw her boyfriend being kissed by some chick So she left Her and Ruth went to New York Jess is empty, she hasn t felt anything in a long time She screams in her sleep Rob shows up saying he needs her help finding his little sister Rob yells at her saying that she was broken and that she won t let anyone close enough to help her Her powers come back, so she comes home and finds Rob s sister Jess s mother is still putting her on this pedistal of this normal girl Jess s dad and her have a cute moment She cries saying she can t go back to the government and she doesn t want to be a concert player and doens t want to marry Skip as her mother wants her to Rob shows Jess that he fixed his life and got money all for her and to prove to her parents that he s worthy enough for their daughter They get engaged It s really good Loved this story Great ending for the series I posted a short review of the first book in this series, and now I ll post a short review of the series as a whole.
I ve read nearly everything that Meg Cabot has written While some parts of this series were familiar to me as a Cabot fan the tough heroine, ready with a punch, the parents that simply don t understand , this series was a real departure from her norm.
In her blog, Cabot has written that 9 11 never happened in Mia s world the heroine of the Princess Diaries 9 11 did happen here and so did the war in Afghanistan, if not in Iraq Unlike her other works, Cabot confronts real issues and real life problems in this book internet predators, porn, post traumatic stress syndrome Jess brother has schizophrenia, and this series could be said to be about his recovery as much as Jess These real problems make the stakes in Jess life seem even powerful.
I would highly recommend this book to any Cabot fan that would like to see her stretch beyond what s familiar.
This is my favourite series by Meg Cabot There is something endearing about Jess Mastriani, a dedicated flute player with anger management problems and quick fists, and Rob Wilkins, who just happens to be one of the sexiest characters this author has created a guy who knows his mind, works hard and above all, waits for the girl It s great to see how all the loose ends get tied in this final book, although I am going to miss this series.
Before we get into this review, there are some things you should probably know I LOVE Jess Mastriani I adore Rob Wilkins I have loved this series from the first book I am soooooooo sad that its over I was apparently absent the day in 4th grade where they though you not to start every sentence with I.
Now that the business has been taking care of, I just adore this series I can t say enough how much I love a good spunky and snarky heroine, and Jess definitely has that down She is funny, silly, feisty, and really makes me relate to her I get hot and flustered with Rob when she does too, because I am soooo right there with her And if Rob is half as hot in real life as he is in my head, then DAMN I didn t buy this series at first, I got it from the library, all except for this book, which I was planning on donating to the library but now I think I ll keep them and just buy them all Yes that s how much I love them But as Levar Burton says, You don t have to take my word for it
