It’s been eighty-six years since the Red Sox won a World Series. Eighty-six years cursed.

Twelve-year-old Oscar Egg believes he is cursed, just like the Red Sox. His real parents didn’t want him, and now his adopted mom has dumped him off to live with his strange, sickly dad.

But there’s something Oscar doesn’t know. The Boston Red Sox really are cursed, and not just because they sold Babe Ruth in 1919. Someone deliberately jinxed the team, and the secret to breaking the Curse lies deep below Fenway Park, with Oscar’s dad and the Cursed Creatures, a group that has been doomed to live out their miserable lives below Fenway until the Curse is broken.

Oscar knows he can be the one to break the Curse, allowing the Red Sox to finally win the World Series and setting the Cursed Creatures free. But some of the creatures are angry. Some don’t want the Curse broken. Some want Oscar, and the Red Sox, to fail and remain cursed forever.

    " Great! The curse, family, racism, forgiveness, love and the Red Socks! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Mrs. Guarisco | 2/14/2014

    " I read this based on a recommendation from one of my student's parent. Ugh. A blending of fantasy and baseball, this book had too many characters in too little time. The fantastic world the author set up never seemed real to me, so the whole thing came across as hokey. The only good thing I can say, in fact, is that I'm done with it. "

    " Nice book - some sad parts, a few insightful parts. I especially liked the internal dialogue and getting to know the main character. "

    " The book was ok. The author did good research about the Red Sox. The mythological creatures were a strange twist on the Red Sox myth. "
