MISSING YOU: 1-800-Where-R-You? - Meg Cabot, narr Johanna Parker

From the back of the audiobook: A few years ago, Jessica Mastrani was struck by lightning, gaining a special ability to find missing persons. When the government found out, she went to work. Finding terrorists, reuniting soldiers with families, finding the lost kid down the street---you know, that sort of thing.
Now, suddenly, Jessica's lost her powers. Not that she's complaining. But it's not so easy to become a normal teen again after seeing violent terrorist attacks in Iraq, being featured on newscasts across the country, and having a television series made about your life. And then there's the super-hot, kind of social delinquent ex-boyfriend Jess left behind. There's one benefit to actually having psychic powers--you know when he's going to show up.
The 1-800-Where-R-You series, the basis for Lifetime's 'Missing', closes with MISSING YOU. Meg Cabot is also the author of the popular Princess Diaries books and the Mediator series, available on Recorded Books.
I put this on my wishlist at Recorded Books, not knowing it's the end of the series. It was still highly enjoyable and I will go back to the beginning and listen to all of them. I may look for the Lifetime series.
Jess has her head on straight for all that she's seen in the world after being struck by lightning and having this ability to find the missing in her dreams. And she's still young enough to have uncertainties abounding about her ex-boyfriend who comes asking for her help to find his missing sister. Jess still loves Rob, but doesn't want to really admit it or that he hurt her years ago.
It doesn't stop her from looking for the missing girl and dealing with the fallout.
Meg Cabot is one of the few prolific authors who I enjoy reading or listening to. She makes each series or book fresh and entertaining.

Five lightning beans....
