The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This YA book is different--so that's a plus. It's set in Ireland so the accents on the audiobook are lovely. And you can sell it to teens as paranormal, but it's kinda paranormal--no vampires or creatures running around. But there might be ghosts.
Cara's family believes in The Accident Season--every October their family takes extra precautions because they fall, trip, break bones, and bleed. Their house is wrapped up in rugs and blankets and bubble wrap to try to prevent accidents at home, but horrible things keep happening.
There's a hint of Irish fairies and changelings and magical happenings, but it's what I would call a magical realistic family secret drama. Lots of romance here, too.
