To avoid an unpleasant ex-boyfriend, Jean moves from her small town to stay with her aunt and uncle in NYC. There, she's surprised at the dark changes her cousin Tory has undergone, but not surprised to learn that she's just as unlucky as ever. To protect herself from Tory's malign influence, Jinx slowly delves into her magical heritage, all the while unsure whether magic is real or not. The conflict was interesting; the romance was not. Jinx has a smart, common-sense approach to everything else in the novel, but she's completely blind when it comes to Zack. It wasn't a believable level of denial; it was clearly just to give the romance a little zing. That downgraded this book from a three star rating to a two.
