The hilarious adventures of Danny Shine continue! What's worse than being a Loser? Being a JINX!

Danny Shine doesn't care about his school's baseball team, the Woodchucks. But he's kind of having fun sitting right behind third base at the big game. He even catches a foul ball -- but that means the Woodchuck third baseman doesn't catch it, and the team loses. Suddenly, Danny finds himself back at Square One: Loserville.

When the Ferris wheel at the school fair breaks while Danny's on it, he gets a new reputation as the school jinx. Can he break the curse before he ruins everything he touches -- including his relationship with the super-cool girl of his dreams, Asia O'Neill?

Praise For The Loser List #3: Jinx of the Loser

Praise for LOSER LIST

"The story unfolds in a handwritten-looking font on lined pages amid ample spot illustrations. Danny's cartoons, sidebars, and lists ("Top Three Signs You're Going to Summer School") should enhance the book's appeal for reluctant readers." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Danny's humorous line drawings help tell the story, making this a fun and accessible book for reluctant readers and comics fans." --BOOKLIST


"Written in the same style as the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books (Abrams), this
title will definitely appeal to reluctant readers." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Danny's lively, humorous journal-like narrative, which is interspersed with his cartoons, incorporates issues ranging from insecurity and jealousy to appreciating others. An entertaining school-centric read that's ideal for reluctant readers and comic-book fans." --BOOKLIST
