For fans of We Were Liars and How I Live Now comes an addictive, sexy, twisty YA novel you won't want to miss.
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 17 - 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.

I loved the way the person reading it really felt like Cara. It was interesting way to tell a sad story. I had an experience that was similar to the one told, where I replaced hurt/sadness with fantasy. Books like these make me feel a little bit more sane!
The imagery was beautiful & I enjoyed the struggle between the characters to figure out what "normal" is.
The moment of understanding what has really happened to Cara and her siblings. You really understand what made her mother worry so much & why "accidents happen"
