A family drama unlike any other from the internationally acclaimed author of All My Friends are Superheroes.
The Weirds have always been a little peculiar, but not one of them suspected that they'd been cursed by their grandmother.
At the moment of their birth Annie Weird gave each of her five grandchildren a special power that she thought was a blessing.
Richard, the oldest, always keeps safe; Abba always has hope; Lucy is never lost and Kent can beat anyone in a fight.
As for Angie, she always forgives, instantly. But over the years these blessings have proved to be curses and ruined their lives.
Now Annie is dying and she has one last task for Angie, her favourite grandchild.
Angie has to gather her far-flung brothers and sisters and assemble them in her Grandmother's hospital room so that at the moment of her death, she can lift these blessings turned curses.

Review by Glorybe1
The Weird family are certainly that "Weird" five siblings whose Grandmother imposed certain "blursings" on them when they were born is dying and before she does, she wants to lift these "blursings" from her dear grand children!! She wants Angie to bring them all to her bedside at the exact time of her death so she can lift them!This leads to a riotous journey for the siblings, where they learn all sorts of things about each other and their Weird family and draw closer together in the process. Very amusing, quite surreal, definitely unusual but oh so entertaining!
