This was an okay book and I quite enjoyed it. It wasn't hugely thrilling and the romance at the end descended into an utter, utter cheese-fest, but apart from that it was a sweet read.
The plot is all about Jinx's bad luck and where it stemmed from. I won't give it all away, but there was a theme of magic and witchcraft in the plot which was fun, although I didn't feel like the whole magic theme was properly explored. Mixed in with that is a romance, literally with the boy next door, that was a kind of will-they-won't-they thing (except you know they totally will).
The story was kind of light and fluffy and although it was labelled as YA, it definitely felt like the younger end of the YA spectrum. Compared to other YA books it lacked a lot of tension and didn't really deal with any issues as such.
Jinx was an okay MC. She was very sweet and forgiving and dealt with her huge bad luck with good grace. There were times when she was literally the most naive character I've ever read about (seriously, how did she not get that Zach had a crush on her?) other than that I quite liked her. I think if I'd have been her, I'd have slapped Tori down to Chinatown on that first afternoon, but that's probably because I'm quite a horrible person. Jinx was a lot more tolerant.
Zach was a worthy romantic interest. There were times when I wanted to bang my head on the table and shout, 'God ALMIGHTY! Just ask the girl OUT!' but other than that he was very sweet. There was no excuse for the cheese-fest at the end, though.
All in all this was an okay story and because whoever buys ebooks at my local library has an absolute boner for Meg Cabot, I have a few more of her novels lined up.
