Summary

A 17-year-old girl struggles to cope with a strange curse on her family which causes them to have dangerous accidents

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?

NOTE : Contains strong language, underage drinking, drug smoking, sexual themes, domestic violence and abuse.
