Book 23 of '10 Jinx by Meg Cabot

Hello Followers,

Dust Jacket Description:

" 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."





Characters: Jinx was a fun, stereotypical chick lit protagonist. Tory maddened me with her idiocy. The boy who was Jinx's love interest who's name I forget was average. Everything I expected from a Meg Cabot novel. But they were all well written. 3 and a half flowers.

Writing:
I had never read a Meg Cabot novel before this point. I liked her comedic wit and her writing style. She had been laughing at particular parts. I was sold very early into the story. 4 and a half flowers.

Plot:
Somewhat confusing. I still don't know if I should classify this as a fantasy novel. But the writing made the ride enjoyable. 4 flowers.

End:
We all knew what was going to happen. But that didn't lessen my pleasure from the story. 4 flowers.

Dust Jacket Description:
Average. It doesn't really make me want to read the book. 2 and a half flowers.

Cover:
Pretty but misleading. 4 flowers.

Overall:
Fun, silly and just what I want from a chick lit novel. 4 flowers.

Emma Out!
