Book Review: Lennon's Jinx

Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who you fall for...

Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir. Lennon’s curiosity overrules his good sense as he tries to peel away the layers to discover the reason for Jinx’s skittishness.

Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious.

When Lennon’s band holds auditions to replace their keyboard player, Jinx comes to tryout and almost leaves after seeing Lennon. Despite the fact she despises him, she joins the band to nurture her love of music that will hopefully ease the guilt gnawing away at her.

Like the rest of his band mates, Jinx soon witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father for the custody of Currie. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting any girl ever see, especially Jinx. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their already messy lives.

REVIEW:
This is one of the books that the reason of reading it was purely because of the synopsis and not the cover, which, between me and you, is awful. The book was part of a tour, and I was supposed to review it a month ago, but due to studies I couldn't.

The book is written by two point of views: Lennon's and Ginx's. The characters themselves have difficult background, that you understand fully, by the end of the book. I liked that the characters were complex and not the simple ones I tend to read. Also, in this case, both characters had something to hide, reveal and accept by the end of the book. In other words, grow up and become more mature.

The main problem I found on the book was, that because the author was a woman, there were some things from Lennon's point of view that seemed slightly off and weird for a woman to write, even though the author tried and kept in the sense of reason. I think I started looking the book in a different aspect when I learnt that the author was a woman and not a man that I thought in the beginning. Also, because I have to put it on the negative paragraph, I didn't like the flow of the story, during the end. Something happens, and the whole thing is written in a very fast and sad way. And as a result, the end of the book, leaves you with a bittersweet taste.

Bottom line, I liked it. It was intense, amusing and you could actually see the change of the characters through out the story. It had a more mature language and descriptions, but that was actually a plus. I couldn't understand why the book had to be a trilogy, but the author makes it clear at the author's note, and now, I have to admit, that I'm anxious to read the next one too.

  6. I can't tell you how fast you will see results because it depends on how much you want to get rid of acne. Small and soft skin growths acquired on the skin are called skin tags. The essence of natural mole removal is the use of herb and folk remedies.
