Jinx by Meg Cabot

Jean Honeychurch, or Jinx as she is called by her friends and family, has the worst luck in the world. Bad luck has followed her around since birth. In fact, to escape her current misfortune, she is sent to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in New York.

Jinx is looking forward to living in New York. The last time she saw her cousin Tory they had such a good time together. But 5 years is a long time not to see anyone and Tory is certainly not what Jinx expected. The new Tory dabbles in drugs, considers herself to be a witch, and has established a coven for witches.

When Jinx realizes that Tory has cast spells, rather unsuccessfully, on the people around her she must step in and finally embrace her own magical power to combat Tory.

Jinx contains all the usual elements of a Meg Cabot book including, humor, romance, witty dialogue with an extra twist of magic. Those who enjoy reading other Cabot books will like this one also.
