The only thing Jean Honeychurch hates more than her boring name (not Jean Marie, or Jeanette, just ... Jean) is her all-too-appropriate nickname, Jinx. Misfortune seems to follow her everywhere she goes -- which is why she's thrilled to be moving in with her aunt and uncle in New York City. Maybe when she's halfway across the country, Jinx can finally outrun her bad luck. Or at least escape the havoc she's caused back in her small hometown. But trouble has definitely followed Jinx to New York. And it's causing big problems for her cousin Tory, who is not happy to have the family black sheep around. Beautiful, glamorous Tory is hiding a dangerous secret -- one that she's sure Jinx is going to reveal. Jinx is beginning to realize it isn't just bad luck she's been running from. It's something far more sinister ... and the curse Jinx has lived under since the day she was born might just be the only thing that can save her life.

A good, fast paced read. It is wonderful how bits and pieces of the stories are slowly spread out to keep you reading and engaged. A fun story with good characters.

This book was better than I expected! I've always enjoyed fun little book "chick flicks", and I assumed this was going to be another one of those: fun, but generic. This book is a great romantic and fun read with a twist! I enjoyed it a lot.

This was another fun Meg Cabot teen book. A sixteen-year-old leaves her small rural home to live with her aunt and uncle in New York city and ends up having a complicated rivalry with her glamorous cousin. What made this book different from other Meg Cabot teen books was the witchcraft twist. I thought this book was really enjoyable and funny.

I liked it, but it was not the normal thing I would read. I'd read it again, but I wouldn't give it more than 4 stars at all. Meg, I love you, but this is not you at your finest.

Great book. Meg Cabot is a great author. I didn't think I would like it when I read the summaries, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. And I am so glad I did!
