For fans of We Were Liars and How I Live Now comes a haunting, sexy, magically realistic debut about a family caught between a violent history, a taboo romance, and the mysteries lurking in their own backyard.

Every October Cara and her family become inexplicably and unavoidably accident-prone. Some years it’s bad, like the season when her father died, and some years it’s just a lot of cuts and scrapes. This accident season—when Cara, her ex-stepbrother, Sam, and her best friend, Bea, are seventeen—is going to be a bad one. But not for the reasons they think.

Cara is about to learn that not all the scars left by the accident season are physical: There’s a long-hidden family secret underneath the bumps and bruises. This is the year Cara will finally fall desperately in love, when she’ll start discovering the painful truth about the adults in her life, and when she’ll uncover the dark origins of the accident season—whether she’s ready or not.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fowley-Doyle’s stunning debut novel weaves the temporal and the spiritual into a seamless reality, rich in emotional impact. Devastating loss and abuse are balanced by romance, teen hijinks, and spine-tingling discoveries…This thought-provoking narrative will cast its spell over older teens and adults alike.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Ghosts, secrets, and magic collide in this…moving portrait of a fractured family, knitting itself back together with courage and love. A powerful novel from an exciting new talent.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Atmospheric and magical.”

    VOYA

  • “A lyrical and sometimes chilling exploration of the ways in which we manipulate memories to fall in line with our present narrative…Cara’s narration brilliantly, sometimes brutally conveys the unraveling of both Cara and her family…and the bittersweet ending will haunt readers as much it does Cara.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Colby Minifie’s accent immediately transports listeners to Cara’s small Irish town. She also carries listeners into Cara’s inner world, where worries about mishaps mingle with uncomfortable romantic feelings…Minifie is as masterful at registering mounting tensions as Fowley–Doyle is at increasing the story’s menace.”
