Published by Simon & Schuster.

I have reached page 104 of 323 pp – and already I can’t put this mix of The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins) and His Dark Materials (Philip Pullman) down.

Though only having read just a third of the book, it has already enticed me away from doing things I should be doing – I can’t put it down. I am not sure that I would have survived the new school that our heroine begins to attend in part two of the book. Somehow, I could probably deal with The Hunger Games scenario more easily than what I think is likely to develop with Jinxed. We will see.

I can, however, confirm that if you enjoyed The Hunger Games or His Dark Materials that this is a book for you. Due out in early August, it really should be a powerful new title for Young Adult and Adult readers alike.

I have a feeling that I am going to be as emotionally involved with this as I was with Patrick Ness’ Knife of Never Letting Go.

With that I cried on the tube.

A sign of a very good book indeed.
