Week 32 Review: Vanished: Safe House and Sanctuary, Missing You

From Goodreads:
Ever since Jess was struck by lightning, she's had the power to find missing people. And everyone wants a piece of her powers....

In Safe House, Jess and her psychic abilities are being blamed for the murder of Amber, a beloved cheerleader. But when more cheerleaders start disappearing, Jess may be able to save her reputation by finding the murderer—before it's too late.

In Sanctuary, the government has always been after Jess for her abilities, but working for the enemy becomes inevitable as Jess tries to track down a local boy who is linked to a militia group. Now with the FBI supposedly on her side, Jess isn't sure whom to trust and whom to run from....

From Goodreads:
Ever since a walk home on a particularly stormy day, Jessica Mastriani has had an ability like no other. She became known worldwide as Lightning Girl a psychic who could find the location of anyone, dead or alive. Jess finally had no choice but to embrace her newfound talent, and ended up lending her skills to the U.S. government. 

But her work for them has taken a terrible toll, and Jess resurfaces months later a shadow of her former self, her powers gone, Lightning Girl no more. Her only hope is starting over in a new place, a big city where nobody knows her. It's only when Rob Wilkins unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep that she's forced to face her past. Rob, all the way from back home, needs her help. But how can Jess, her powers gone, find anyone, let alone the sister of a man she once loved . . . when she can't even find herself? 

My Review:
I just loved reading these books again! They're just so good, and they're Meg Cabot books to boot, and yeah, they're just so awesome! And I just had to keep reading them, more and more, because I enjoyed this series, and her writing, so much!

And from cheerleaders being kidnapped and even killed, hate crimes, and some close to home sexual predators, well, Jess has a lot of variety in people she can help! Because, unfortunately, those that she can help are victims in all sort s of crimes.

I really enjoyed how while there's the mysteries that Jess gets sucked into, there's also the personal things that she's dealing with, mainly with Rob, her family, and the government wanting her to use her ability for them.

While there are still some funny times, by Missing You, it's more serious and grown up, which is appropriate, because Jess is more grown up, she's going to college. And then Rob comes around, and she does some more growing up. And just ending this series in a pretty great place!

I enjoyed reading this series again so much, I can't even find the words. It's just so great!
