12. Jinx by Meg Cabot

            I have found another surprisingly dark subject matter in YA Fiction.  Jinx (Jean) goes to live with her aunt and uncle and their family in New York City because she is being stalked at home in Iowa.  She attends an exclusive private school with her cousin, Tory, who then invites her to join her witch coven.  Jinx refuses the invitation and the problems begin.  Unfortunately, Jinx is a witch.  She doesn’t want to be one, after her disastrous spell back home, but she has to do something about her cousin’s destructive behavior.  Of course, all her secrets come crashing down and Jinx finds that she really is the unluckiest girl alive.  With very serious teen issues and the witch subject matter Meg Cabot offsets the book with a leavening of humor and a happy ending.
