Having had enough of her, Jean’s parents send her off to live with her Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Ted in New York. Why? Could it be the fact that, as she says in the book, "I told him about the supercell that struck the very moment I’d been born" that could explain her bad luck? Or could it just be something else?

Coming to New York to live with her aunt, uncle and cousins sounded quite good to Jean. She could make a new start with no bad luck. But on her arrival, she discovers that her cousin Tory she’d last played with, five years ago, was not what she’d expected. Was Tory far too cool to bother with Jean?

When Jean saves the life of the super hot Zack who lives next door, Tory, jealous, tells Jean that they both inherit magic powers from their great, great, great,..., grandmother. After this announcement, Jean starts to wonder if it is true or not. All this is going to turn her life upside down.

Meg Cabot writes this book through the eyes of a teenage girl who has many different friends, family and personal problems. Meg Cabot links lots of different strands together to make this whole book great and exiting!
