Book Review: Jinx by Meg Cabot

Genre: Young Adult

Jean Honeychurch is a magnet for misfortune, so much so, that she's known as, Jinx, among her family. Her "bad luck" is the reason why she has to move from her home in Iowa, to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in New York - a move Jean doesn't mind making. Trouble seems to follow Jean, though. She (a) finds that her cousin, Tory, has had a total personality/appearance change, (b) catches the eye of Zach, a guy Tory is crushing on, and (c) discovers that drugs isn't the only dark thing Tory's into, but something far more sinister.

Like Meg Cabot's other books, Jinx is a book I found hard to put down. The characters are lovable and the plot is both believable and engaging. The only negative thing I have to say about Jinx is I wish Jean had more of a backbone (you'll see why I say that when you read the book). This doesn't take away from how good the book is, though.

Rating: 4/5
