Description

Archie Comics proudly introduces the first book of the new graphic novel series: Jinx.

Written and drawn by the award-winning team of J. Torres (writer), Rick Burchett, and Terry Austin, Li’l Jinx has now grown up and is headed for high school!

Real, not ideal...
Jinx has just finished her last summer of middle school and is getting ready for her first day of high school. She can’t wait to see her friends—all of the friends she’s hung out with since she was a little girl. There’s no reason for any of them to start acting weird, like, not want to sit with her at lunch, or want to date her or anything...right? It’s not like everything changes in high school...is it?
