      Meg Cabot rocks, there's no doubt about that. This early series, originally published under her Jenny Carroll pen name, is an absolute blast. Do yourself a favor and get books 3, 4 and 5, too. Once you've read the first two, you'll want to keep on going.WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKESI've decided that it really doesn't matter what Meg Cabot writes about, she's such a talented author that I'm pretty much guaranteed to like any of her books. Meg Cabot novels have solid, fast-paced plots, wonderful characte [...]

      I was not really sure what I was expecting in this book when I first read it. It turns out the author, Meg Cabot, is extremely talented. This book got me thinking pretty well. In short, I liked it.Jessica Mastriani was your average sixteen year old girl until she got hit by lightning. Did she die? Was she injured? No. She seemed fine. That is, until she discovered she came find missing people dead or alive. In the second book, she had already discovered that not everyone wants to be found. Some [...]

      I'm so lucky to find this two-in-one book because it is super hard to find any part of this book nowadays.Plus, two books in one?When Lightning Strikes Jess Mastriani was struck by lightning. So, she's dead? No. Coma? No. She's perfectly healthy. Until she dreamt of the exact location of missing children and called 1-800-where-r-you. And voila! The missing children are back! But is she doing the right thing? What if some of the children didn't want to be find?Written in typically Meg Cabot's sty [...]

      Vanished was a great story. Sassy Jessica Mastriani is a girl who doesn't like to be bothered much. She likes it even less when you say something horrible about her friends or family. This is why Jessica spends a lot of her free time in detention. Needless does Jessica know that serving detention is going to be the least of her worries.I really really enjoyed Vanished. Meg Cabot is absolutely hilarious. I loved Jess. She is a great snarky and sarcastic character who you can't help but think that [...]

      Vanish by Meg Cabot is one big book with the first two books of the 1-800-Where-R-You series. The book introduces a young teenage girl named Jessica, aka Jess. Jessica is a very likable character, with her funny, and sometimes sarcastic humor, but her character is likable because of the bravery and guts she had when trying to find the kidnapped child. Both books had emotions that Jess felt, allowing the reader to feel like love, or anger, and even happiness, knowing that Jess did the right thing [...]

      This book ( or should I say books) was really amazing and I had to give it five stars, well the second one wasn't my favorite but it was still great.The great things about this book 1) I can really relate to it. And it's so true, it really felt like someone was really telling their life story, if we lived in a world where we would find missing children with the power of our minds.With powers2) great detail, I loved how it really described everything, I felt so connected to Jess.3) rob.And there [...]

      Giving the book a try so when people bash chick-lit, I'll know what about it to bash, well - objectively. Another reason is the fact that I want to know Meg Cabot. In a strange way, she didn't disapoint. I know I should choke and fell of the chair reading how Manstriani, the less than perfect protagonist, displaying every bit of signs of girls hitting puberty, but I didn't.Perhaps due to the way how she goes about it unapologetically. Another run to Meg Cabot's? No thanks, though. I'll ensure my [...]

      Reissue of the first two books in her 1-800-Where-R-You series: When Lightning Strikes and Code Name Cassandra. Personally I think "Vanished" is a misleading title. The main character can find missing children after being struck by lightening.

    • Tyra says:

      One of my FAV series when I was younger by a very talented author.

    • Darsha says:

      cant wait to get my hands on the 3rd book!

    • Bea Angeles says:

      This book is pretty good.It would be really cool if you have the power Jessica has.

    • Hannah says:

      I promise to be brutally honest with my opinion, but it should not be taken as fact. Any reader should read it for themselves, before they decide if this book has any merit or not.Do not judge this book biased solely on my opinion.If you do, you might miss out on a great read. You never know. It could happen. So, this book called Vanished is actually two separate books in one. Too bad will not recognize this book as two separate ones in my book goal for 2012. Oh, well! Anyways, I will separate [...]

      I really enjoyed this book! I am usually a very slow reader but when I read this book I would pick it up and the next thing I knew I had read 100 pages! The thing I liked about this book most is the characters. They are all very fun and interesting whether your laughing with them and cheering them on or rolling your eyes, annoyed at them. They all make you feel a certain type of emotion at some point of the book. Another thing I love is all the action. Whenever something suspenseful happens it i [...]

      To be honest, I don't have any expectation with this book(s), to which I think is a good thing because I was able to enjoy it in my own flow without the needs to suffice the "expectation" meter I always set for a certain book. Riveting in its own way, witty in a lot of different ways--Vanished is a book perfect for light reading with a dose of mystery and adventure (and detentions) on the side. I really like how the heroine, Jess, isn't the typical girly girl superhero (i really like how she alw [...]

      6/4/2017 I finished the first book out of this 2-for-1, but I've kept it on my currently-reading shelf thinking I'd get around to the second book eventually, but I haven't. Since it's been over a week now, I don't remember much of the book itself. Of course, it was a bit more juvenile, a bit more unlikely than I remember from when I first read it years ago. I had also seen the first season of the television show, and that had messed with how I remember the book. For instance, Jess did not get el [...]

      I had bought the Vanished (Book 3 & 4) years ago, but never read it because how could I start in the middle of a series. I was quite disappointed in this book. I couldn't continuously read and found myself needing a distraction every now and then. Throughout the book, I found it had a couple of spelling errors, which bothered my flow and later, bothered me that a publication wasn't more careful. I think the hype for this book is too high. I was genuinely excited to read this only to have it [...]

      Meg Cabot really knows how to grab your attention. The minute I read the back of the book, I knew I was already falling in love with the series and it was proven when I finished this in a few hours. Jessica Mastriani tells her tale of being struck by lightning and suddenly having the ability to locate missing children. Following her journey through her two friends, Special Agents Johnson and Smith, best friend, Ruth, and her older kinda-boyfriend, Rob Wilkins was crazy. I definitely suggest this [...]

    • GinaClabo says:

      So enjoyed these books (Books 1 and 2) Jess is the best sassy ass girl and I laughed at her anticsLove the friendship and love interest in these stories book 2 is a continuation of book one it is about a girl Jess who gets hit by lightning and then can find missing children so fun and enjoyableRecommend to 15 yrs and upDoes have some strong language but not to badGina Clabo

    • Sammie says:

      This book was very intriguing from the beginning to the end. I liked how she added different changes that led to the plot. Rob is a total hottie and their confusing relationship was one of my favorite elements. I hope the second book still has their confusing relationship and plot. Cannot wait to read the next two books!

    • Tam says:

      This book was great. Jess is a wonderful character that you can't help to want to read more about. I got completely sucked into her world and did not want to put the book down. The only reason it did not receive 5 stars is because of the horrible editing performance. This book had way too many spelling errors missed by the editor. I hope they fix it. Otherwise fantastic read.

      it describes my life, literally

      Rating: 4.5/5Wow. This was my second time reading Vanished by Meg Cabot and I was not disappointed!The first time i read this, I was about eleven, and decided to read it after catching friend of mine with the book in her possession. She loved it. This novel is probably for someone a few years younger than me (around 15 years old) and is the perfect mixture of both Science Fiction and Teen Fiction. Jess is a strong, tomboy teenager who isn't afraid to throw a punch - something I love. She has dif [...]

      The book I chose to read over spring break was called When Lightning Strikes, by Meg Cabot. The protagonist of the book is a young teenage girl named Jessica Mastriani. Jessica was struck by lightning on her way home from detention and got psychics powers. These powers gave her the ability to locate missing children. She looks at pictures of missing children on a milk carton in the evening. Then, when she wakes up she knows the exact location of the missing. Jessica Mastriani is not your typical [...]

    • Jennifer Chou says:

      The first book, When Lightning Strikes is basically an introduction into what Jessica Mastriani's life is like after getting struck by lightning. Jessica is a 16-year-old girl who isn't very social and has one best friend named Ruth. She has two older brothers, Mike, who is extremely smart and going to Harvard, and Douglas. Douglas was diagnosed with schizophrenia and Jessica is very protective of her family so she often gets in detention for punching people when they say mean things about peopl [...]

    • Laura Martinelli says:

      Ah, omnibus editions. When Lightning Strikes: Unlike the first Mediator book, this doesn’t really grab me into the series at first. Which is a let-down seeing that a lot of the book focuses on how Jess gets her power in the first place.The problem is the pacing of the plot—the whole book takes place within a week, two weeks tops. Jess hasn’t explored the limits of what she can do after three phone calls, although she doesn’t seem particularly disturbed by the fact that she knows where pe [...]

    • Kara says:

      This book series is AMAZING! seriously one of the best i've ever read! I checked it out because I absolutely love anything by Meg Cabot and it looked new (although it is just the 1 (800) WHERE ARE YOU series republished as Vanished) and I couldn't put it down. It's tied for my favorite series with Meg Cabot's other series The Princess Diares, which is impressive as I've read that series since the third grade. Jess Mastriani is a sixteen year old girl living in Southern Indiana with an average li [...]

    • Jennifer Rayment says:

      The Good Stuff * Absolutely positively delightful heroine. I would totally adopt this girl in a heart beat * Hilarious dialogue * quirky and different plot * Parents of Jess are realistic and only slightly clueless. I really don't like the Mom though * The storyline is so absorbing and fun you will not want to put it down and even-though the book looks huge, you will have it read in no time at all * Loved the realistic and honest relationships between Jess and her family and friends * The scenes [...]

      Vanished is a new bind up of the first two books in a paranormal series by Meg Cabot.Jess Mastriani is a sixteen year old girl with issues. It just so happens that her issues are somewhat more complicated than most teens. When Lightning Strikes sees Jessica’s rather geeky existence take a turn for the paranormal when, you guessed it, she gets struck by lightning on her way home. Suddenly Jess has the strangest ability she can find missing people. She goes to bed the night of the lightning stri [...]
