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.

Her relatives are wealthy and live in a big house. They have a dau...
Cabot's formula works again!
Another fabulous read by Meg Cabot. I start reading this book about few weeks ago and I just stop reading this because there are new book I've got that holds more my attention, it got lost and just yesterday I found it under my bed. (haha lazy much?) So anyway, I finished it few minutes ago and it ...
