Portable Monsters

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Accident Season - Colby Minifie, Moïra Fowley-Doyle

So far, the story is pretty interesting. What's up with the "accident season"? Why does it happen, and to just that family? Is it tied to the house they live in, since non-blood relatives are subject to it? Who (what?) is Elsie? What's the deal with the mirror/reflection people?

 

The writing is pretty good - enough so that, together with an excellent audio performance, I can *almost* not notice first person/present tense. And the story elements are interesting enough that I can *almost* disregard the tedious high-school politicking and adolescent romance.
