[Download E-pub] ♣ When Lightning Strikes ♊ Tyrakel.de

I received this book in a subscription box I looked at it and tossed it into my TBR pile I thought that it didn t look interesting That it looked childish, that it would be something that would quickly make its way out of the house once I got around to reading it Instead, I was pleasantly surprised It was witty, it was fun, and I ve since bought all the other books in the series in order to finish it off I m quite looking forward to their arrival. ,, , , , ,, , , , ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, , , , , , ,, , ,,, , , , , , , ,, , , ,, ,3, , , .

I love this series I loved it when I discovered it in my high school library yes they do have good things mixed in there with the boring required reading and 10 years later I still love it Story Jess is your relatively average sopho girl Relatively, because she tends to talk with her fists This leads her to spending a lot of time in detention, with the kids from the other side of the tracks, known here as the Grits There she meets Rob Wilkins, our hot guy of the series He rides a Indian motorcycle and is 18 This is a plus for Jess because even though she doesn t have her license, as Tom would say she So things are going pretty well, sure she has detention for over a month, but Rob just asked if she needed a ride home Unfortunately she is with her friend Ruth who is set on walking home and working off some calories and she can t leave her or invite her since bikes aren t made for 3 Jess and Ruth only make it to the sports fields before it starts to hail and are forced to hide under the bleachers where leaning against a pole Jess is struck by lightening Jess seems ok until she wakes up the next morning and knows where the missing kids on yesterday s milk carton are Can you name this 90s jem This book sets the stage for Jess dealing with her ability, mainly who to trust, including the government , her moral responsiblitly and trying to live her life including convincing Rob to be her boyfriend In true Meg Cabot form it s everything you want in a fun teen read fun, comedy, drama, adventure, superpowers and a hot boy on a motorcycle Because in the wise words of Lorelai Gil I hate Meg Cabot she is a terrible writer she doesn t write sentinces, she writes fragments and then putsfragments at the end to clear up what was perfectly clear in the first place she leaves out things that are important she doesn t describe stuff her prose stinks how on EARTH she became a best selling and popular author, i have no idea.but i read the first book of her series here, When Lightning Strikes, and seriously had to read the others i still haven t read the last book, my library doesn t have it in right now, but this book got me hooked to a story that was written by excuse me a sucky writer it was wild, weird, crazy, funny, and had some very creative twists in it great story now if only she could learn to write sentinces, i mean example of what she does i swear i don t write like that normally. 3.5I liked Jess and seeing how see got herself out of trouble I enjoyed the humor and shenanigans with the government I can t wait to continue on with the series to find out how Jess continues to handle her power. This book was sort of like reading a female Donnie Darko in many ways And not only was it an accurately written view of a rebellious girl in high school, it s also a sci fi novel where a freak lightning storm gives Jessica the power to know where missing kids in town are My only complaint is the the government wants to experiment on people with weird powers plot That whole idea is so old I ve seen it in countless books and movies, every author from Stephen King to Diana G Gallagher has used it on various occasions It d be really nice to see a book that takes aoriginal approach. I ve read this before and this was only a re read A light breezy read for anyone who doesn t want anything intense. To see full binge click here.Oh, Jess How I forgot you were the Cabot character with violent tendencies.Well, Suze throws a mean punch too but it s sort of a necessity You on the other hand your rage is sort of funny but at the same time scary.Not in a bad way though.Jess is perfectly engaging Though I did get annoyed with her world at times There are some jokes and remarks made in this book that are eyebrow raising at best I seriously, wanted to throw a punch at Rob Wilkins for calling Ruth fat No No No Rob Wilkins, you just don t do that.It doesn t make you desirable.At least Jess tells him this too Though it s obvious she wants to make out with him.Another thing that really sticks out after all this time is how much the world has and hasn t changed since this series was originally published the early 200 s, pre 911 days Jess s super power is a little obsolete now with social media and Google Locate doing a lot of the work she did for her But she still would be utilized I guess.The other thing that bothered me about this series was you had to suspend your belief a lot I m sorry but the way the whole Crane Military Base thing was handled was ridiculous I can t go into to many details because of spoilers, but just know I was completely shaking my head thinking Cabot had never seen an episode of UFO Hunters because if she did she know if you were remotely close to a top secret military base you d be surrounded and your mission to find the aliens would be aborted.Whatever.It s still a fun book But yeah, I see it s warts now and the years have not exactly been good to it Or terrible for that matter I think The Princess Diaries probably got the worst of it with the pop culture references.
