Spring in high school brings a whole new set of challenges for feisty freshman Jinx—more tests, new sports, and anticipation for summer. But more frightening to Jinx than anything else is the dreaded school dance... and to make matters worse, this one is girls' choice! That means Jinx's friends Charley and Greg are competing to be her date, as if the very thought of dancing wasn't awkward enough. And on the home front, Jinx is faced with even more changes when her usually distant mom suddenly wants to be BFFs.
As Jinx deals with questions of female identity and growing up, and as rules and relationships become more complicated, one thing remains the same: Jinx means bad luck to anyone who gets in the way of getting her way! A story told with great wit, humor, heart, and style—you'll fall in love with the realistic and uplifting story of Jinx: Little Miss Steps. An original graphic novel.
