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.

Professional reviews

"When Jean moves from Iowa to live with family in Manhattan, she hopes the bad luck that earned her the nickname "Jinx" doesn't follow. Unfortunately, even if she could move on, her sophisticated but malicious cousin Tory won't let her. Both girls have magical powers, but there can only be one witch in the family. Amber Sealey develops Jinx from a na•ve country girl to a confident witch in this magical story. Sealey is most believable when portraying Tory as a conniving witch with a capital "B." Her voices for the supporting cast of family members, the German au pair, and the cute guy Jinx and Tory fancy are equally believable in this tale of high jinks in a Manhattan high school. M.M.O.
