Jean’s cousin Tory thinks she’s a witch. And not the good kind, either. She wants to use her so called “powers” to make a boy fall in love with her. Unfortunately, that boy might already have his eye on clumsy cousin Jean. Check out our review of

Author: Meg Cabot

Jean Honeychurch has always hated her nickname, Jinx. But that’s what you get when bad luck follows you around like an ugly shadow. When she thinks her life can’t get any worse, she gets a stalker. Jean has no choice but to leave home and escape to the Big Apple. Maybe her luck will change in New York…or maybe the worst is yet to come.


The Wicked Witch of Manhattan

When Jean arrives at her her aunt and uncle’s house in Manhattan, she can’t wait to see her cousin, Tory. But Tory’s not the same friendly girl she once was. She smokes, drinks, sports an all-black wardrobe...and oh yea, she thinks she’s a witch!


Black Magic

Their grandmother once told them that their family descended from a powerful witch. Now Tory is convinced that she possesses the magical gift. Unfortunately, Tory isn’t interested in using her so-called “powers” for good. She creates voodoo dolls and dabbles in black magic. And worst of all, Tory is convinced that Jean is a witch too! When Jean refuses two join her coven, Tory gets angry…very angry.


Useless Voodoo

Tory’s got it bad for her neighbor, Zach. She even cast a love spell on him. Unfortunately, Zach’s not responding to the magic. Instead, he’s secretly spending time with Jean. But Jean’s afraid of what Tory might do if she finds out. After all, Tory is no stranger to outbursts of psychotic, and sometimes suicidal, behavior. Somehow, Jean needs to put an end to Tory’s reign of terror and fascination with witchcraft before she casts a spell that’ll really hurt someone. And with Jean’s bad luck, she’ll be the victim.


The Bottom Line

Jinx is one of Meg Cabot’s most entertaining reads. If you ever dabbled in witchcraft, then you should definitely read this book. It shows what happens when you use magic for the wrong reasons…and honestly, it’s not pretty. If you’re not into witchcraft, then at least you’ll enjoy the love story.

    We are planning to go for a cruise trip from Boston to Montreal. I’ve never been in Montreal. Since this is my first time. I’m too excited.  While searching online I found Blount Small Ship Adventures and they seem good. We are a group of 6 adults and 2 children. I'm a little bit worried about the children. Has anyone been there before? What can I expect?
