Knocking on wood is said to bring good luck. But what if the luck is bad? That's the question Philip Graham tries to answer in this clever, dark novel about a family cursed by bad luck. When the youngest brother, Jack, begins to experience strange accidents, the family starts to wonder if their luck has finally run out. They turn to Knock, the family's traditional way of curing bad luck, but Jack's condition only seems to worsen. With the help of their grandmother and an eccentric priest, the family begins to piece together the story of their cursed ancestors, and the secrets that have kept their family unlucky for generations. In the end, they must face the truth about their own family and their own luck-or lose everything they've ever known.; 8vo; 177, [3] pages; Signed by Author.
