The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Posted by Krystal Larson at 8:11 PM Friday, September 11, 2015
It's the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.
The accident season has been part 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-growing obsession and fear.
But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?
Imagine a season every year where you are prone to injuries and pain. Although I find the premise cool, I think I would be wrapped up in a blanket in a padded room. Cara doesn't have that option (though her mom does take the time to make everything safer). Cara and her family have to be extra cautious during the accident season. I loved how the author made the accidents seem like they could happen to anyone...but not at the same rate.
I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. They each had something to add to the story as a whole. The author was fantastic at getting the reader to care about the characters and tying all of them in to the resolution at the end. The ending itself was both surprising and satisfying. It's hard to say too much without giving something away. I loved how I never anticipated the ending. This book is a great read through and through and recommended to young adult/teen readers.
