Format: Paperback
Li'l Jinx is now a teen, excited for her first day of high school. How come her friends don't treat her the same way? And why do people think Jinx should start acting like a girly-girl? Especially her dad, who won't let her try out for the football team! Archie Comics begins a new graphic novel series with our friend, Li'l Jinx. The plot gives us drama and emotions typical of today's teens--there is angst, jealousy, and romance sure to make this book popular with preteen and teen readers. The illustrations harken back to the early days of Li'l Jinx, so as an adult I appreciated the instant trip down memory lane. Thanks to Archie Comics for providing the ARC.

To see & read "Jinx" all grown up was such a delight, along with her father & friends. It was interesting to read the trials & tribulations of H.S...I recommended this graphic novel to any child or teen starting M.S or H.S. or any adult, that remembers Jinx such as myself. I still read Archie comics as an adult & have been reading them since I was 11yrs old, & I still look forward to reading Jinx featured in them. It's nice to see "Jinx" was not forgotten...looking forward to novel 2. Great job!!

Format: Hardcover
Little Jinx is about to turn 14. And thus, she's beginning a new life in high school...if only she can find something to wear.

Actually, that's the least of her problems, as she finds herself not exactly fitting in as well as she'd hoped in her new school: First, the principal confiscates her cell phone, then she spends lunch at the geek table, and, perhaps worst of all, she doesn't have any classes with her friends.

J. Torres (Lola: A Ghost Story, Alison Dare) crafts an imminently likable character in Jinx. She lives with her father, who struggles to understand his young daughter while maintaining a good sense of humor, which is necessary when dealing with a character like Jinx. She's spunky and rather delightfully perky, even while complaining about her new school, which she does a lot. She does rash, bold things, like try out for the football team (against everyone's, including her father's, wishes) and kiss Greg, her best friend since kindergarten. That these things don't work out quite the way she planned is part of the pleasant surprises the book offers.

Since she was first introduced in Archie Comics in the 1940s, Jinx has been a precocious 8-year-old with a tomboy streak a mile long. She keeps that ferociousness as a teenager, and it's nice to see. The stories, which unfold over four chapters, are never too deathly serious, but they still manage to convey a maturity that will appeal to tween and younger readers of today. Most of the serious side of the book comes about in the aforementioned football tryouts and the kiss, but one particularly pivotal scene hinges on a jealous classmate finding out about Jinx and Greg's kiss and writing some very unflattering words about Jinx in the boys' bathroom.
