1-800-WHERE-R-YOU Series Book #2: Code Name Cassandra by Meg Cabot

Jessica Mastrani has lost his psychic powers to find kids. Or so she told the US Government at the end of the last book and that’s how she wants to keep it. The problem is, she still has the powers and she is still finding kids. These kids though, she’s made sure that they actually want to be found.

In the second book, Jess is dealing with the psychic powers thing while being a counselor at a gifted kids music camp – hey, it was better than working the steam table at her dad’s restaurant. Although, she is thinking of giving up the psychic power thing when she is put in charge of a cabin full of boys who turn out to be total nightmares.

Especially when an emotional father comes asking for her help in finding his daughter.

I’ve said this before, but the thing I love about Meg Cabot books is that there is constant action, and the plot just flows. There are not too many moments while reading that you find yourself going, okay, what’s the point of this paragraph? These books are also very funny. The only two things that still piss me off about these books are the adult characters for being so damn pushy and judgmental, and the whole forbidden romance between Rob and Jess. Seriously, there is zero action between the two in this book – he doesn’t even show up until about 140 pages in or so.

Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. A little comedy, drama, mystery and horror all rolled into one. It was great. Only complaint was that there was no romantic action between Jess and Rob.

Bookshelf worthy? As with all Meg Cabot books, yes, definitely.
