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.
"The Changing Season is a story that will bring you back to that awkward period of time between childhood and adult life. I highly recommend this book." (Richard Paul Evans, number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Christmas Box and The Mistletoe Promise)
"Manchester's The Changing Season will be to young adults what Old Yeller is to my grandson." (Ed Asner, actor, Up, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, Elf)
"The Changing Season is a thought-provoking coming-of-age tale that explores the complicated themes of love, faith, family and, above all, loyalty. Mr. Manchester's portrayal of a boy at the cusp of manhood is evocative and sympathetic." (Susan Wilson, New York Times best-selling author of One Good Dog)
