“Ghost trains and changelings,” he tells me. “Spooky dreams. It’s coming up to Halloween.”

This book! This book! I really loved this book. If you’re looking for something different with magical realism or paranormal elements for this month, I’d recommend picking up Moïra Fowley-Doyle’s The Accident Season. Cover linked to Goodreads.

From my review:

“Every October Cara Morris and her family slip on an extra sweater, pad the corners of tables, and avoid deceptively innocuous activities like walking across bridges. It is the accident season, when bruises and broken bones aren’t just possible, they’re guaranteed in the Morris household. But this season promises to be one of the worst and the last time that happened, someone died. When Cara stumbles upon a mystery, she, her best friend Bea, and ex-stepbrother Sam will uncover secrets that will turn their world upside down.” See my full review here.

  1. I have heard slightly mixed things about this. Most were positive, but one of my friends read this and hated it. We don’t have very similar tastes in books, so Im guessing it’s better than she thought it was. I think it sounds interesting and worth picking up. Happy Friday!
