Editorial Reviews

About the Author

You can thank A.C.’s first grade teacher for the interest in writing fiction. It was her casual comment on a mandatory daily journal, wherein she noted A.C.’s flair for storytelling, that planted the notion of writing full-length novels, poetry and short stories in an already overactive mind. A.C. went to work quickly, burning through reams of paper with an ever-scribbling pen before turning to computers at age 14. The boreal world rejoiced, and A.C.’s range of writing grew from simplistic children’s tales rooted in wish to horror stories, thrillers, and psychological studies of damaged men and women thrown together by circumstance. (Oh yes, and there was that novel-length X-Files fanfiction… but no one else ever read it so luckily, it doesn’t count.) A.C. Dillon’s first published work is a natural evolution of over twenty years of reading and writing literature, and is characterized by the core elements existing fans have come to love: complex, relatable characters; witty dialogue; and an immersive narrative. Between insomnia-fueled writing sessions, Dillon is an ardent animal lover who debates politics, obsessively collects music, and endlessly re-watches one of the most underrated films of all time: Empire Records.

Format: Paperback
This book is part of a tour. The reason I choose it is simple. The plot sounds really interesting and the cover is so beautiful. Simple, but beautiful.

The story surrounds around Autumn and her life, past and present. You know that there is something in her past that affects her future, but you do not get it untill long after. You only get pieces and little by little you are able to create the entire picture. But there are not only problems in the past, there are problems in her present too. The two stories are somewhat different, and they may sound complicated and too much, but they are very interesting. Though, I wouldn't like to be in Autumn's place. But for everything she's been through, she doesn't lose her sense of humor. Plus, she knows so many things about music, movies and so much more. I wasn't able to relate with Autumn or any of the other characters, because they all had a secret past, they had beed through different situations, that only make them more lovable to the people.

The writing was simple. There were descriptions of the places that were able to make you feel like you were there without really trying. Most of the story happens in the boarding school, so it was easy to start imagining the place around. There were also many metaphors related to movies or music and this only made it more realistic. The story is sad and scary at the same time, and you have many feelings passing through you the whole time reading.

If there was one problem, that would be the way the author writes. Even though she prefered the third person, the story was so focused on Autumn, that sometimes it made me feel that if the author wanted she could write only from Autumn's point of view and there would not be a difference.

Format: Paperback
Pop culture, the supernatural and a strong female lead are three of the top five attributes that usually make a book become one that I love. There are exceptions to the rule of my preferences, but a quick glance over my top five books of all-time would garner a check, check, check to those three things being a part of each of the five. I also will be quick to tell you that the strong female lead I mentioned before needs not be perfect, because flaws and the survival of dysfunction, whether it stem from the internal of the external, usually just makes me love her more. I will admit the characters I can root for, cringe with, and relate to are the ones I tend to tuck into my heart and forever remember, no matter how self-indulgent that may sound.

Autumn Brody is one that has found a place in the circus tent of characters that play around in my psyche, forever part of that literary fictional psyche, and Change of Season will find its spot in my list of best books.

Autumn is in the midst of a major transition as she moves into a boarding school, bringing along with her the baggage of a terrible secret and the burden of responsibility that this secret has created. She is trying to move forward, while also attempting to keep herself hidden and isolated. In the midst of her "take no prisoners" mentality she both makes friends and possibly loses her mind. Is her new school actually haunted, or is this a final split from reality breakdown that she seems to expect to come and get her. Is sixteen -year-old Autumn in more danger now, in her school of both rehabilitation and the arts, then she was from the secret past she is so driven to escape from? Is it something supernatural that is haunting and possibly coming for her?

I meant to write a review for this novel a few weeks ago when I finished it, but life intruded. From this brief remove, though, the positive aspects of Dillon's first novel are even clearer. First, just so you know who you are listening to, I am in my 40's and a lifelong reader of fiction...literary, contemporary, fantasy, scifi, and mysteries mainly. That will give you the context you need when I say that no one blindly went into the basement in this novel, especially once they discovered the lightbulb was out. In other words, not only was the story well plotted and compelling, the author didn't rely on stupidity to get her characters into suspenseful situations. The book takes place in a boarding school (always fun!) and there is a supernatural element (ghosts), a mystery from the past, friendship, romance, and trauma to be dealt with. The adults in the book are a mixed bag of good, bad, and great, just as are the teens...another instance of even handedness on the part of the author. The story, while it has a teenage protagonist, doesn't depend on an us kids against them adults trope. The mystery was finely plotted and full of surprises. The friendships were realistic and well-conceived. I especially liked the close, and again very realistic, relationships Autumn (our hero) had with her mother and father.

I loved reading this book and was driven to read more and more and faster and faster as I went. I am sorry it's over. I hope A.C. Dillon writes lots more because I'll read it! I'll be buying a physical copy for my high school math classroom (kids borrow books from people who like to read, whatever they teach!) as I read the book on my kindle.
