Publisher Description:
Do not get to know me. Do not ask me out. Do not love me. Be warned I am Jinx. Jinx doesn't start out as Jinx -- at first she's dull, safe, boring Jen. Jen who always hands her homework in on time, Jen who never stays out late, Jen who can always be counted on. When Jen's first boyfriend dies, she thinks she's unlucky...until her second boyfriend dies too. Jen is Jinx now -- a curse, a promise of bad luck, a girl who's angry and alone, who can't get close to people anymore. Can Jinx find her way back to being Jen again?

"Connected poems compellingly tell the story of a self-proclaimed jinx as she weathers the tragic, unrelated deaths of two consecutive boyfriends," said PW. Ages 14-up. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
