Okay, I think that this was one of the worst, most dreadful books in the TB Series. I didn't like the plot, characters, or Jinx. But I guess I'll give an overall review of this book:

It all starts out with Melanie & Christina riding at Belmont Park. Mel's real bored and there's alot of ranting from her about how sad she is because her special, precious horse Perfect Image will never be racing again, and there's no other special horse for her to work with or to look forward to. So when she goes back home to Kentucky, she goes to some old fancy party, trying to score up some rides. While there, she hears someone talking about some sale at a farm, and she gets all excited when she hears that there's a horse related to Seabiscuit from there. So the next day, she goes to see a big, chestnut 2 year old colt named Hi Jinx [who is related to Seabiscuit.] And then the colt nearly runs over her, and then bolts on the track riderless really fast, and Mel instantly falls in love w/ him because of his 'awesome' speed.

So she and Jazz agree to buy him, but when Jinx gets to Whitebrook, he starts behaving absolutely terribly, and ruins his stall, bites the grooms, and throws Melanie off when she tries him on the track, and later on chips a horse named Fast Gun's bone, and her aunt Ashleigh tells her she can't keep Jinx @ Whitebrook 'cause he's too much trouble, and Melanie starts crying and all that drama. But, in the end, Jinx turns out to be the perfect horse when Mel just lets him do what he wants on the track.

So that's pretty much it. Like I said, I didn't like the book one bit, but I'll still continue to read the TB Books, I just REALLY hope the authors can come up w/ something better.

This was probably one of the best books in the series! And now Melanie isn't acting so bratty anymore.

Melanie needs to find a new horse to race since her filly, Perfect Image is injured. She doesn't think she'll ever find another horse like Image again. But that's all about to change. One day she meets a beautiful chestnut colt named Hi Jinx, a direct descendant of the famous Seabiscuit! So Melanie buys him.

But when he gets to Whitebrook, Hi Jinx starts acting up! I won't tell you the ending, but Jinx finally behaves at the ending.

One thing though, in the book, Jinx is a chestnut horse. But on the cover, he looks more like a bay. Look, the books are good, but the covers could improve.

First of all, I have not yet read this book, so don�t get excited! I�m an Aussie and our TB books are much slower over here, the most recent release at the moment it Hoofprints in the Snow!
But to my point: I just wanted to comment that I am very disappointed at the latest attempt at the authors of TB (Can�t keep track of them) at attract audiences to their book. I.e., the use of horses with bloodlines tracing back to famous thoroughbred. Sure, it would work once, maybe even twice, but it�s starting to get old now. I mean, it�s just too obvious an attempt when you start bringing in references like Seabiscuit, who has recently been in a movie and as such will have exposed the general public to wider knowledge of him. Enough, guys, you�ve done it to death! The photos are ok, nothing wrong with including one of those � but stop the references!
In other news, I�m looking forward to the next few TB books, watch out for my reviews ;)

I loved this book! It's about Mel, and she's looking for a new horse and falls in love with a SUPER BLOODLINES HORSE! But, Hi Jinx has a horrible temper. But, AMAZING speed. She takes on the challenge. But, he hurts another race horse, chews and kicks at his stall, and tossed Mel off EVERY time she rides him! . Can Mel change all of his energy into speed? To find out Read this book!!

I agree with another reviewer-- ENOUGH famous horses. I do like the bios (the Romance horse was good in Parker's Passion-- I always liked eventing a smidgen better) but the references are a tad too much, especially when some of them aren't correct. Wasn't Flag's Up Farm the farm where Alleged was trained? The Roberts farm? I don't recall all of it's stock being shipped off... and was it even in Kentucky?:s
But I do like the Melanie is getting a new horse. I was fearful that the series would be ending! The one thing I am starting to miss about TBs is their realism. In the first few (1-20) there was so much about the racer's times and running style... and that's starting to disappear. Still, it's one of the best realistic horse fiction out there, so thumbs up!

All right! Finally a horse descened from the greatest horse ever, Man O' War! I really like how High Jinx looks like Man O' War too. I hope the auther will let him win the Triple Crown! The one thing I don't like is that on the back cover it says he looks like Seabiscut, who is a bay, while Man O' War was a fire red chestnut, like Jinx.

wow. this book was terrible. melanie's character was terrible. the plot was terrible. the writing was terrible. jinx was terrible. i'm so glad that this trend was no repeated in following books, which have been a HUGE and welcome improvement.

even though the series still stumbles, i've been buying these books for 11 years and will continue to do so. i hope that the editors reconsider their decision to end the series.
For all Thoroughbred lovers, I personally loved Hi Jinx more than Image, I don't know why. He made me think of Native Dancer, my favorite racehorse. But what is happenin between Mel and Jazz?? For some reason i think Mel is startin to like Kevin again. Its 2 bad though, I like Jazz. I never liked Kevin or Dylan. But read this book- I agree that the whole 'famous bloodlines' thing is annoying, but otherwise this is a pretty great book.
