Have you ever had one of those days or weeks where everything that could go wrong does go wrong? Well, for Jean Honeychurch, every day, every week, has been that way since the day she was born. So much so that everyone knows her as Jinx.
And when her luck goes from bad to worse, her parents decide she needs to try a change of scene. Jinx moves from rural Iowa to the home of her aunt and uncle in New York City. But the changes in store at her new home and school are not what she was hoping for, especially when her beautiful, sophisticated cousin Tory is in the picture.
Jinx is a nominee for the 2008 Teens’ Top Ten. To read more about the Teens’ Top Ten program, click here. To request this book from the library, click here. And don’t forget to place your vote during Teen Read Week, October 12-18, 2008.
