Book Description

7 Sep 2007

It wasn’t just the power failure the night Jean Honeychurch was born that earned her the nickname Jinx: misfortune seems to follow her wherever she goes. Which is why she’s been shipped off to New York to stay with relatives – including her sophisticated cousin Tory – until the trouble she’s caused back in her small hometown dies down.

Tory couldn’t care less about Jinx – until Jinx’s chronic bad luck starts wreaking havoc in Tory’s perfect world. Only then does Jinx learn that beneath Tory’s big-city glamour lies a world of hatred and revenge. And now Jean’s jinx could be the only thing that can save her life . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars complicated teen life. 11 Oct 2007
By Wyvernfriend VINE VOICE
Format:Unknown Binding
If it wasn't enough that Jean (aka Jinx) Honeychurch is an accident magnet, she was born in a thunderstorm, or that her mother is a pastor or that she's from Iowa, but she's had to leave home to go to New York because of a stalker. Her relatives are wealthy and live in a big house. They have a daughter about the same age as Jinx, Torrence (aka Tory, but she's trying to leave that nickname behind) who has fallen into some bad habits. Including black magic.

Jinx has to try to make new friends, work out what the gorgeous Zack wants, and try to stop her cousin from harming her, and everyone around her, that and try to work out how to use her own powers of witchcraft.

It's fun, light and a very quick read. Typical Meg Cabot fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Meg Cabot! 18 Jan 2009
Format:Unknown Binding
Being a Meg Cabot fan, when I first picked up this book I had high expectations. I was definitely not disappointed. The lead character (Jean), as in many other Meg Cabot books, is someone that teenage girls can really relate too. However this book isn't like a normal "mean girls", boy meets girl book; Cabot somehow mixes the supernatural into the story to create an interesting and exciting turn of events.

You never know what is going to happen next in this book and for me that is a sure sign of a great author. If you enjoy other books by Meg Cabot you are in for yet another treat.

If you liked this then you'll like these - - -

Avalon High - Meg Cabot

Wicca / Sweep series - Cate Tiernan (Highly Recommended!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 29 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book, and think it's one of Meg Cabot's best yet.
It's about a teenage girl named Jean Honeychurch. Everyone calls her Jinx, due to her clumsiness and bad luck. Coming from a house packed with siblings in the country, Jean is forced to move in with her Aunt, Uncle and cousins in New York to escape her stalking ex-boyfriend.
Jinx finds herself living a completely different lifestyle, where she gets lots more pocket money for much less work, and she lives in a spacious house with few people in it.
She was excited to see her cousin Tory again, because she hadn't seen her for about five years, but she discovers that Tory has changed dramatically, into a Goth-style girl, stick thin and plastered in make-up who believes that she is a witch.
Tory tries to get Jinx to join her coven of witches, but Jinx refuses, which causes Tory to get mad at her.
Tory also has a great dislike for Jinx because she 'stole' Tory's crush, cute guy-from-next-door Zack.
This book is brilliant, dark and full of magic. Some characters are really likeable, like Jinx and Chanelle, whilst others are really hateable, like Tory and Gretchen. I was engrossed in this book, and never wanted to put it down. The only thing you could improve on would be to write more books, and turn it into a series! Although it would be hard to think how to turn this book's ending into a new book. Oh well.
5/5, I've read it many times, and I'm sure I will read it again. Buy this book, especially if you like the rest of Cabot's teen girl books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 7 Sep 2007
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Unknown Binding
Jean, aka Jinx, is the most unlucky person ever to live. Jinx says this about herself: "If I didn't have bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all."

And that only gets worse when she arrives in New York.

After her ex-boyfriend begins stalking her, she moves from her little town in Iowa to New York City to live with her aunt and uncle. Her cousin, Tory, Jean quickly realizes, is not the same as she was five years ago, when they would climb trees together and swim in the river. On her first day in New York she sees Tory hanging out with her friends, drinking and doing drugs.

What Jean doesn't realize at first is that Tory thinks she's a witch.

So what was it that made Jean leave her home? What's up with Tory and this whole "witch" thing?

JINX is Mrs. Cabot's best paranormal book yet! Jean is so funny, klutzy, and naive that it's impossible not to love her! I just could not put this book down after I turned the first page! I was even laughing when I read the first paragraph! Yet another great book from Meg Cabot, as expected!
