Book Review - "Jinx" by Meg Cabot

Publisher - HarperTeen
Release Date - August 1, 2007
Number of Pages - 272

It's not easy being Jinx.

Jean Honeychurch hates her boring name (not Jean Marie, or Jeanette, just . . . Jean). What's worse? Her all-too-appropriate nickname, Jinx. Misfortune seems to follow her everywhere she goes even to New York City, where Jinx has moved to get away from the huge mess she caused in her small hometown. Her aunt and uncle welcome her to their Manhattan town house, but her beautiful cousin Tory isn't so thrilled. . . .

In fact, Tory is hiding a dangerous secret one that could put them all in danger. Soon Jinx realizes it isn't just bad luck she's been running from . . . and that the curse she has lived under since the day she was born may be the only thing that can save her life.

- I read it in a day. Of course it's good!
- Writing style is amazing! It's so informal yet formal but... I can't explain it.
- Very likeable (and unlikable) characters.
- The story is just so unique... don't I say that for almost every book I read?
- Interesting twists at every corner!
- Pretty cover
- Meg Cabot is not able to write a bad book

-I chose to do this book for my English project... but I still liked the book!
