Recommended Teen Reads: The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle


Every October Cara’s mother bundles Cara, her sister Alice, and brother-not brother  Sam inside protective layers. The knifes, the kettle, and the toaster are put away. The gas is turned off, and edges of things are wrapped but still, bones break, bruises are made, and skin is cut. And Cara’s best friend Bea’s tarot cards are saying this accident season will be one of the bad ones.

A story about the secrets we keep, the secrets we share, and the secrets that haunt and hurt us. The love we keep, the love we share, and the love that haunts and hurts us.

The Accident Season is a dreamy, eerie, and evocative read, which drew me into its mysterious and slightly creepy world straight away. I really loved this book, it was impossible to tell what was going on, I really liked the style of writing, and the ending wasn’t a disappointment.

Reading age: 13 –
