Teen Book Club is for ages 12 and up, though some books may include more mature content. In order to participate in book club, you must read the book and be willing to discuss the book by sharing your own thoughts and answering discussion questions. May's book club selection is The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle.
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?
