Book Review: The Accident Season - Moira Fowley-Doyle

The Accident Season - Moira Fowley-Doyle
The Accident Season
It's the accident season, the same time every year.  Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.

The accident season has been party of seventeen-year-old Cara's life for as long as she can remember.  Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them,  Cara's family becomes inexplicably accident-prone.  They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items - but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-glowing obsession and fear.

But why are they so cursed?  And how can they break free?

3/5 stars (liked it)
This was a great book to read in October.  Had a little bit of a spooky factor.  I really liked all the twists and turn that kept me guessing.  I loved all the characters but I wish the mom had been in it a little more.  Overall a fast read.
