Review: When Lightning Strikes

2007 Finishes: Books

When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot
Genre: Young adult, paranormal
Pages: 266
Rating: 4.2

Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors, and I continue to be surprised by how well she does in such a variety of genres. This is the first in her 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series of young adult paranormals. The tone is pretty similar to that of most of Cabot's other books, and her blog - you get the definite feeling that she writes the way she speaks. When Lightning Strikes tells the story of a teen girl who is hit by lightning and acquires the ability to look at a picture of a person before bed and wake up the next day knowing where that person is. She begins by helping find missing children on the back of milk cartons, but soon the government gets involved and of course (as this is Cabot) hilarity ensues. As in most of Cabot's books, the everygirl main character is balanced by a quirky coterie of family and friends. I wouldn't say this was one of Cabot's best, but it's definitely a good read.
