A sarcastic teenager with the powers of cupid unleashes her preternatural matchmaking abilities on her school with hilarious and charming results.
Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong…
Written by Sam Humphries and illustrated by Caitlin Rose Boyle, this charming tale is sure to appeal to romantics and cynics alike
I received Jonesy on Netgalley for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
I’ll keep this review short and sweet. Jonesy is an outcast at her school. She doesn’t have many friends besides two. She is obsessed with her favorite singer Stuff as any young girl would be. She doesn’t love the feeling of love and she tries to be against the social norm. Jonesy received her powers by watching Anime. She can manipulate people with mind control, but she can’t force people to love her.
Jonesy was a short entertaining comic, and if you’re expecting a plot to this book, there is none. Jonesy focuses on her misadventures and her plots that go wrong! It’s a fun read, but it could have been a bit better. I have to say I love how the cast is diverse. Lastly, I love the relationship Jonesy has with her puny donut loving father!
