When Lightning Strikes
When lightning strikes there can only be trouble - as Jessica Mastriani finds out when she and best friend Ruth get caught in a thunderstorm. Not that Jess has ever really avoided trouble before.
Instead of cheerleading there are fistfights with the football team and month-long stints in detention - not that detention doesn't have its good points - like sitting next to Rob - the cutest senior around! But this is trouble with a capital T - this trouble is serious.
Because somehow, on that long walk home in the thunderstorm, Jess acquired a newfound talent. An amazing power that can be used for good ... or for evil.
Code Name Cassandra
The 'Lightning Girl' has lost her powers! Or at least that's what Jess would like the media and the government to think. All Jess wants is to be left alone - well, except by Rob, the hottest senior in detention.
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 who are more than interested in their counsellor's psychic abilities. And, when the father of a missing girl shows up, begging her to find his daughter, Jess knows that she can't refuse.
Now the feds are on her trail again, as well as one very angry step-dad, who'd like to see Lightning Girl ... dead.
