When Jean moves from Iowa to live with family in Manhattan, she hopes the bad luck that earned her the nickname Jinx doesnt follow. Unfortunately, even if she could move on, her sophisticated but malicious cousin Tory wont let her. Both girls have magical powers, but there can only be one witch in the family. Amber Sealey develops Jinx from a nave country girl to a confident witch in this magical story. Sealey is most believable when portraying Tory as a conniving witch with a capital B. Her voices for the supporting cast of family members, the German au pair, and the cute guy Jinx and Tory fancy are equally believable in this tale of high jinks in a Manhattan high school.
