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.

I would sum this book up as a coming of age book with good life lessons.
Steven Manachester wrote a fascinating book with The Changing Season. The characters are ones that you can love and really relate to. The book tackles many topics and struggles that Billy a young man encountered after his much anticipated high school graduation. This was an emotional read with some of the challenges that Billy faced. I could not get enough of Billy and his loyal companion Jimmy (his dog). This is a young adult book that would be great for someone preparing to graduate. Life lessons are great to read about.
I gave this book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
