‘Jinx – a story about success’ By Calina-Ioana Paunescu

In the Cat District, life is easy… except if you are a stray cat; and in top of that, a black one.
Jinx is the most skilled mouse hunter in the district, but his condition makes him unworthy in white cats’ eyes. But Jinx knows his worth and nothing will stop him from gaining success.
Join Jinx and his non-binary friend, Rusty, in their journey to be heard and seen and to break the stereotypes.
It’s a story about systemic discrimination and not giving up no matter what others say.
