It wasn't just the power failure the night Jean Honeychurch was
born that earned her the nickname Jinx: misfortune seems to follow
her wherever she goes. Which is why she's been shipped off to New
York to stay with relatives - including her sophisticated cousin
Tory - until the trouble she's caused back in her small hometown
dies down. Tory couldn't care less about Jinx - until Jinx's
chronic bad luck starts wreaking havoc in Tory's perfect world.
Only then does Jinx learn that beneath Tory's big-city glamour lies
a world of hatred and revenge. And now Jean's jinx could be the
only thing that can save her life.
