Overview

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.

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 Jinx joins Lennon’s band to nurture her love of music and ease the guilt gnawing away at her, she witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting Jinx ever see. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their messy lives.

Can I just say that Chris Myers is an incredible author. She knows how to grab you right from the beginning and keep you reading along until you get to the end and leaves you wanting more and more. I could not put this book down because first I love a bad boy rocker and I love books with music in it...

…Following him around the story I was sure I knew how it would turn out, but then as I discovered more about him and his past and this person he really is, I was thrown. Well done Chris Myers, well done...

Lennon's Jinx blew me away!!! I absolutely fell in love with this book. I read this book in one sitting, because I just couldn't book the book down...

...This was so well done. This is the second book by Myer's I have read and loved. I will pick up anything she writes in the future and read it. She is truly a talented writer that knows how to get under your skin and leave a mark that won't soon be forgotten.
http://novacritiquesebooks.blogspot.com/2013/02/arc-review-lennons-jinx-chris-myers.html - Nova Musings of a Blogder
…So to sum everything up, I have to say this book is an amazing read and though I'm a teen (under 16), I loved it to pieces.I cried more than once, wanted to hurt Jinx more than once and wondered why there aren't more authors like Chris Myers.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way affected my opinion.
    I had a pre-conception that 'Lennon's Jinx' would be an escapist YA romance, easy to read and without any emotional connection. I was wrong! 'Lennon's Jinx' kept me up until 2am reading and once I had finished I was tempted to go back and start again.
    When the reader meets Lennon he is gatecrashing Jinx's party. Chris Myers introduces Lennon as a jerk - with a heart. Although he clearly has a history with girls, the authour indicates that Lennon is texting a babysitter at home about his sister, suggesting that he is more responsible at home!
    However it is not just Lennon who has secrets, as Jinx certainly intimates towards her own. This continues throughout the book, and when Jinx reveals the emotion is heightened by the chemistry shared between her and Lennon. Jinx is a beautiful character, and her growth in the novel is one of the reasons why I loved it so much. From being scared and alone she joins a band, increases her social circle, finds the courage to tell her secret and even possibly find love.
    Lennon is a more complicated character, but I feel that Chris Myers wants her reader to fall in love with him, despite his faults. He has given up his youth to take care of his younger sister,and in truth his mother. My absolute favourite scene was the visit to American Girl Place. Here, the reader sees Lennon's teenage vulnerable and paternal sides clashing in a brilliantly humorous, yet touching way. There are difficult issues for Lennon to deal with in this story and eventually the reader is able to meet his maturer alter-ego!
    'Lennon's Jinx' is a book that made me laugh and definitely made me cry. Lennon and Jinx are not the only two characters Chris Myers allows the reader to fall in love with so be prepared before you meet Currie and Zoe! I recommend this book to anyone.

    I did a promo post back a month or so and thought the book sound

    I did a promo post back a month or so and thought the book sounded great then. So I was super excited to be able to read and review the book for the tour.




    It didn’t disappoint!




    Lennon’s Jinx had me pulled in from the first moment.  Both Lennon and Jinx are as complex and, well, screwed up as their names.  Both their families are screwed up as well, and neither has an easy road to go down.




    The two of them seem kind of drawn to each other but fighting it, but when they are around each other, sparks seem to fly. Lennon and Jinx themselves are just amazing characters, you really have to wonder how they have turned out as great as they are based on everything they have gone through.




    Yep, I’m gushing again.  I liked this one a lot.
