Overview

Safe House by Jenny Carroll

"Help me find my little girl."

Jess Mastriani — dubbed "Lightning Girl" by the press when, after a huge storm, she develops a psychic ability to find missing children — has lost her miraculous powers. Or has she? She would like the media and the government to think so. All Jess wants is to be left alone, by everyone except sexy Rob Wilkins — who still hasn't called, by the way....

But it doesn't look like Jess is going to get her wish — especially not while she's stuck working at a summer camp for musically gifted kids. Then the father of a missing girl shows up to beg Jess to find his daughter. Jess can't say no, but now the feds are on her trail again, as is one ornery stepdad, who'd like to see Lightning Girl...well, dead.

About the Author

Meggin Patricia Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana. Her childhood was spent in pursuit of air conditioning, of which there was little at the time in southern Indiana. A primary source proved to be the Monroe County Public Library, where Meggin whiled away many hours, reading the complete works of Jane Austen, Judy Blume, and Barbara Cartland.
Armed with a fine arts degree from Indiana University, Meggin moved to New York City, intent upon pursuing a career in freelance illustration. Illustrating, however, soon got in the way of Meggin's true love, writing, and so she abandoned it and got a job as the assistant manager of an undergraduate dormitory at New York University, writing on the weekends (and whenever her boss wasn't looking).
The first of her many historical romance novels written under the name Patricia Cabot, Where Roses Grow Wild, was published in 1998, followed shortly by its sequel, Portrait of my Heart, and An Improper Proposal, A Little Scandal, Lady of Skye, Educating Caroline, Kiss the Bride, and a novella included in the anthology A Season in the Highlands. Meggin has also published three adult contemporary romances, Boy Meets Girl, The Boy Next Door (a Kelly Ripa pick!) and She Went All the Way.
In addition to her adult romances, Meggin is currently working on many bestselling series of books for young adult readers, including The Princess Diaries as well as The Mediator and All American Girl. Look also for Meg's two historical romances for younger readers, Nicola and the Viscount and Victoria and the Rogue, in addition to her new stand alone novel, Teen Idol. Film rights to The Princess Diaries were sold to Disney, and a feature length film based on the book was released in August 2001. A sequel to the film, based on an original story written by Disney, is scheduled to release in summer 2004. Film rights to All-American Girl also went to Disney. A television series based on Meg's 1-800-WHERE-R-U books is currently being broadcast Saturday nights on the Lifetime network.
Meggin now writes full time, and lives in New York City with her husband and their one-eyed cat, Henrietta.

In the book Safe House, by Meg Cabot (writing as Jenny Carroll) Jessica Manstriani has been away for the summer and was unaware that a girl from her school had been murdered. The students from Jess's school are blaming her for the girl's death because the year before Jess had been struck by lightning which gave her super natural ability's to find missing people in her sleep. Jess is trying to convince everyone that her powers had vanished just as suddenly as they had come on. But no one believes her; the press had nicknamed her "Lightning Girl", and has been camped out on her front lawn for months. A girl who had been there when jess had found a young boy at camp is telling everyone that jess is lying about her powers. Jess is trying to start fresh this year with a new wardrobe and no fighting. Her plan backfires when a stuck up cheerleader, Heather, makes fun of jess's older brother Douglas, who had been sent home from collage for trying to kill himself a few years before. Everyone involved in the fight is sent to the guidance counselor's office, where jess has her first encounter with Mark Leskowski. Mark had been dating the girl, Amber, that was murdered and was now the leading suspect in the case of her death. Well Jess and Mark are out for pizza at Jess's family restaurant, the girl Heather disappears. The girls on the cheerleading squad tell Jess that if Heather ends up like Amber then she's to blame. Jess's "boyfriend" Rob helps Jess find Heather at an old abandoned house that had obviously been use for parties as well as a home to various animals. Jess gets curious about what kind of people use the house, and asks questions to anyone involved. the kidnappers don't like it and start threatening Jess though phone calls and burning down her family's restaurant , then one more missing girl, until then jess figures out who did all of it and why. But now Jess has a new worry, a new agent on her case and he's not as friendly as the old ones.
