Through Jinx covertheir writing, they show it’s not too late to give today’s at risk youth a chance to be heard.

The book is hard to put down. Jinx’s explosive beginning is followed by the kind of goose bump-raising honesty only fiction, in the hands of talented authors, can deliver.

Join Jinx as she battles against her inner demons with the help and guidance of a therapist who hears the taunt of his own devils.

Jinx will challenge your ideas of today’s youth and yet give you hope for a better tomorrow. A must read for parents, counselors or teachers dealing with addicted or troubled adolescents.
