Saturday Stars – 29 September 2018 – Jess Mastriani

I just finished watching the latest episode of A Discovery of Witches and it has me scrambling to finish the book already so I’ll know what happens next! The suspense is torture lol.

I find myself thinking of Jess today and how much she’s one of the my favorite characters from the 1-800-Where-R-You series by Jenny Carroll/Meg Cabot.

How to participate in this meme:

Saturday Star: Jess Mastriani
Book/Series: 1-800-Where-R-You series by Jenny Carroll/Meg Cabot.


All her life, Jess has stood out from others. She’s not your typical teenager. At school, she’s known for girl most likely to punch you in the face. She’s spunky, fierce, sarcastic with smart repartees and she’s loyal to a T. When I read the series, I wanted so much to be like her. She’s just plain cool.

Then she gets hit by lightning and suddenly, bam, she knows how to find missing kids, like a radar for missing kids. With this new power, her life changes for both the worst and the better. She learns how to cope with it and how it affects her family. She learns to live with it as she falls in love with the bad boy.

I always loved how she stood up for herself, her friends, how she always defended her brother. She made mistakes along her journey and learned some hard lessons, but she also learned that’s what life was about. Though it’s hard, she makes tough choices and till the end, she retains that unique personality that’s all her.

If you haven’t read her story, give it a try and tell me all about it. 😉


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
