When Lightning Strikes is the first novel of the Adventure books series. It was written by Lene Kaaberbøl and first published in Denmark by Egmont in 2002. An English version was released in the USA by Hyperion Books for Children in 2004.
Will has a crush on Danny Nova, a new boy in school. He's cute, nice, and the best dancer! But there is something strange about Danny... Soon after he comes to town, mysterious power outages start happening. Will isn't in the dark for long, as she and her four friends start off on a dangerous journey to solve the mystery. Will needs to use her special powers over energy to prove just how strong her heart truly is.
Suddenly, there was a searing flash. Around us, power sparked and surged. Then, the car stopped, and all the lights went out.
Oh, no, I thought, not another power outage. Or maybe it was part of the ride? No. I had felt the power surge and break; I had felt it leap right...
Shock stilled my heart for a second.
