Praise for Jinxed

 

“… heavily reminiscent of Lois Duncan novels, with a little R.L. Stine and John Carpenter thrown in, Jinxed offers gnarly entertainment in a super-readable form that will appeal to anyone who enjoys a little creativity with their thrillers…would be fabulous on the screen (big or small — but I’d actually like to see it as a TV series, in the vein of Riverdale.) Teens will eat this up, as will many adults. Recommended.”
