It's October, and 17-year-old Cara and her family are girding themselves for the accident season. For her family, this is the time of year when frequently and randomly "bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom." Sometimes disasters can be more devastating--Cara's father died nine Octobers ago. 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 for her stepbrother. Minifie is as masterful at registering mounting tension as Fowley-Doyle is at increasing the story's menace. As Halloween nears, mystery and magic, specters and secrets make it difficult to tell the real from the fantastical. S.W.
