Sometimes bad luck is more than coincidence...
Pen O'Connell is, without a doubt, the unluckiest girl at Callindra Secondary College. Her dream date's just fallen through, her dog has literally eaten her homework, and don't even mention the incident at school camp.
But when Pen meets Sebastian Meyer, teenage genius and genetics expert, she begins to wonder if everything that happens to her really is just bad luck.
Could the bizarre theory that's turned every teacher in the school against Sebastian explain why Pen is more likely to get a head injury than a hot date? Why does Pen's name strike terror into the heart of pop princess Sereena?
And just how far will Pen go to get what she deserves?
