She is being transferred to a school in New york as she had a stalker back home in Iowa - she had actually run half the country to escape from him. On the first day she meets her cousin Tory, who has changed a lot from her last visit five years ago. Tory believes that she is a witch, a gift of magic which she had inherited from her great-great-great- whatever grandmother Branwen. The story takes a wild turn afterwards and endup as a big rivalry as Jean and Tory could be the potential grand daughter with the gift. Tory does everything to shake Jean's world and Jean tries to solve them. Turns out Jean's crush for Zach and Zach's friendly hangouts with Jean causes Tory to go mad and make her do extreme, psychotic things. Yeah I hear you, typical YA novel with lots of boy trouble and rivalry. Typical high school.
Finally Jean embraces her magic, her gift and her fate or bad luck comes to an end. She finally understands Zach's love and with Tory away at military school, they no longer have anymore troubles. Life is all peaceful and all set
It was a real fun and a quick read. Meg Cabot makes sure that the story is fast paced with a hint of mystery lined to it. I did enjoy it but I think I picked it up at the wrong age. When priced at such a nominal price in Flipkart, I did not mind buying and sure did not regret reading it. With no bit of vulgar or any tensions between the gender its a good read for the children too. This is the first book of Meg Cabot that I read and I absolutely loved it. Waiting to collect all of the princess diaries collection (probably aiming at buying the boxed set).
