Style, glamour, intrigue and scandal - it’s all happening at Stagmount.

Jinxed is the sequel to High Jinx by Sarah Lawrence which I thought was fabulous! I've always wanted to go to a boarding school and Jinxed made me want to go to one even more than the first book did! It sounds so fun and girly! A school where everybody knows each other and the little ones look up to the bad-ass big ones ;) 

We learn a lot more about the history of the school and more about Jinx too, in this high-spirited sequel; but, to be honest, I wasn't that keen on the plot for this at first, although it sounded very mysterious. The Russian triplets amused me. They sounded quite..odd, but interesting nonetheless! The twist at the end was far from 
predictable (says easy to please me) but it was a good ending! 

Jinx was a fabulous character in this, as were all the others; lively, energetic and charismatic. One thing I love about all of the girls is that, this goes for High Jinx too, because of all the swearing and alcohol that is written about in the books, you'd think that they were quite a rowdy, snobby, bitchy bunch; but they're actually not, on the outside they all put on this tough, bad girl, posh girl look, but inside they are really sweet and caring.

Sara's writing is fantastic. The characters in are even more likable than in High Jinx and adventures sounded so fun! Outrageously fun and entertaining, Jinxed is something else!



  1. I always wanted to go to boarding school too! Book sounds fun.

  2. Sounds like a fun book (though I never personally liked the idea of boarding school).
