Being stuck at home has me going through my to-read stack and getting through some of the books that I have had for a while. I picked up Jinx a couple of years ago at a big Half-Priced Books sale. It is a book I had wanted to read when I was much younger and finally got myself a copy as a adult. Then it sat on my book shelf for a couple of years.
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. . . .
Jinx is a super quick read – less than 300 pages – and it is full of teen drama, high school romance, and revenge. This is a book that I would have loved in middle or early high school when these were my problems. As an adult, the story is a bit light-hearted. This book was a nice easy read and a good distraction in these slow days.
I recommend this book to younger reads, fans of teen romance, or someone who just wants a bit of a distraction and a happy ending. Hope everyone is feeling well and safe in these odd days.
