January James is leaving Seattle and going to Egypt on a dig for the summer. Once she gets there, however, things go a little differently than she imagined. First, she falls in love with a guy who's allegedly cursed. Then Chloe, a prissy, lip gloss-obsessed brat, tries to steal him from her. The Jan finds out that a bracelet she bought at a market is a stolen, cursed artifact. She has to find a way to get rid of it, without getting arrested. Jan's narration is funny and poignant, and I really enjoyed this book.
