Jinx (and the series as a whole) is brilliant! It's such an interesting and unique concept, with well-rounded and realistic characters that you can't help but love, and a world that draws you right in.
I first read this book while still in elementary school, and I loved it - the rest of the series hadn't come out yet, and I didn't realize that there would be more books. Several years later I rediscovered it and read it again, and I loved it just as much - if not more - the second time! I was delighted to find that there was a second, and third, book. Overall, an awesome read!

Nearly abandoned in a forest by his stepfather, young orphan Jinx lands, instead, in the home of a wizard, Simon. There Jinx, who has always had an ability to see others’ feelings in colors and symbols, develops the ability to communicate with the forest’s trees. But after Simon performs a spell, Jinx loses his capacity as an emotional seer. Setting out into the forest to look for a counterspell, Jinx joins company with a girl and a boy, both of whom are suffering under their own curses.
