The Changing Season by Steven Manchester – Review

A remarkable coming-of-age story with special appeal to dog lovers.

This was supposed to be a simple summer for Billy; one more lazy expanse of time before college began. He’d fill the hours playing with Jimmy – his canine best buddy – going camping and doing all the things he promised Jimmy they’d do before Billy left.

But that was before the accident that shook the entire town.

It was before the summer job that turned into something so much more than a way to get a paycheck.

And it was before Vicki.

This summer was destined to be many things to Billy, things he didn’t truly understand until now. But it was definitely not going to be simple.

An enormously touching, richly textured, deeply moving novel of new adulthood, THE CHANGING SEASON is an experience to savor.

My Review –

As in all of Steven Manchester’s books, the stories linger with you long after you’ve finished the book. The Changing Season is no exception.

Growing up, good decisions, bad decisions, consequences, young love, companionship, regrets, and heartwarming can all be used to describe Steven’s latest book.

The Changing Season will take you back to high school, a time for making senior class memories that will follow you for a lifetime. It is the coming-of-age story about a boy and his dog, one last party, and saying good-bye.

Steven hits the mark on this one with the wonderful inclusion of the main character’s relationship with his dog.

I am giving The Changing Season five stars.
