It wasn’t just the power cut the night Jean Honeychurch was born that earned her the nickname Jinx. Bad luck follows her wherever she goes! After all, that’s why she’s been shipped off to her posh cousins in New York, to lie low until the trouble she’s caused back home dies down. Jinx’s stuck-up cousin Tory couldn’t care less about her… until Jinx’s jinx starts wreaking havoc in Tory’s perfect world. Only then does Jinx realise that beneath Tory’s big-city glamour lies a dark world of evil, hatred and revenge. Now the jinx that’s driven Jean crazy might be the only thing that can save her life… From bestselling author Meg Cabot, this tale of sophistication, destiny and the supernatural stirs up a darkly thrilling magic brew.
