Description

A summer trip to Greece seems like the perfect chance for thirteen-year-old Dani to spend some time on the beach, help her bookish best friend Cathy get her first kiss, and maybe find some summer romance of her own. But when bad luck begins to strike over and over, and continues to strike when she returns to her home in Toronto, Dani starts to wonder if she is cursed. Literally. Cathy tells of the “evil eye,” and warns that a curse may have been put on Dani by a mysterious girl whose path she crossed in Greece. Dani gets sick, injured, and her family car is vandalized. Is it the “evil eye,” or is someone out to get Dani? And what bizarre lengths will Dani go to as she tries to get the curse lifted?

 

Combining the humorous and the sinister, Bye-Bye, Evil Eye is an engaging read from Governor General’s Literary Award finalist Deborah Kerbel.

Editorial Reviews

“Kerbel has a knack for transporting you to wherever the story takes you, using strong sensory descriptions that don’t seem flowery or overdone.[…] Bye-Bye, Evil Eye was delightful, and had me reading the whole book in one sitting – a great read for your twelve-plus reader! ”

— Lost in a Great Book

Bye-Bye, Evil Eye will give young readers a bit of escapism, a bit of boy-girl crushing, a little girl drama, and some mother issues. Reality and fancy all wrapped in a delightful tale in which not everything is as it seems.”

— CanLit for Little Canadians

“Kerbel’s novel is readable and engaging. I applaud her ability to take a fresh perspective and explore gender identity and the complexities of culture.”

— CM Magazine
