One review on “Jinx”
The subject matter of this story is extremely compelling. After all, it's not often we get to learn about the plight of young women in contemporary Africa. The way the story is written you really feel for the protagonist and the most heartbreaking thing is that you realise that there are probably thousands of people like her.Cons
The landscape orientation threw me off at times. Also, I think there a bit of room for improvement with regards to the dialogue.
