The Changing Season By Steven H. Manchester

 Book Description...

"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 Thoughts....

What a amazing story that this author gives the reader! A boy and his dog. Billy Baker who has graduated from HS, getting ready to go off to college was having a a heck of summer fun. With his dog [Jimmy], along with his friends[Charlie and Mark], getting a summer job and even getting a new girlfriend [Vickie] what a summer it will be for Billy. However, what will happen when a dark secret comes out about a friend and what was up with Billy's sister [Sophie]? How will this secret affect Billy's love life? I will say what a beautiful bond that this boy {Billy]had with his dog[Jimmy]. If you are a dog lover...this read is for you! All in all with all that goes on in this story the author gives the reader a well written story that will keep your attention all the way to the end. One thing for sure if you want to learn about dogs that have been in a shelter/pound....this is one excellent read that will explain it all to the reader. There was a part of the story that I did find it somewhat predictable, however I will say it did not take away from the fact the story was still a good read. In the end be ready for a good read that deals with 'age tales, dogs, test of friendship, loyalty, great job and first love.' That ending was quite a tearful one for me! Would I recommend this read to a teenager and up. Yes! This was truly one amazing story! Oh, I also wanted to mention that beautifully done book cover!

Thank you to the author for this read in exchange of my honest opinion of the novel.
