Change Of Season (Autumn Brody) Paperback – June 15, 2012
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 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, realistic 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.

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. In addition to being a delicious thriller for the rest of us, Change of Season is a gift to teenagers who have been forced to deal with painful things, whether physical or emotional. The raw language, detailed emphasis on music and writing and drama may seem too much to some people, but to anyone who has known teenagers, it's just right. I highly recommend this book to you. M.

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? Is it the horror of an abusive ex-boyfriend who may be keeping his promise of finding her no matter what or where? Or, is it all in her mind?
There is something so delicious in riding along in the quest to find what is real, and what is not.
Along with Autumn, who I had such an immediate kinship and connection with; Change of Season introduces an array of colorful and unforgettable characters, my other favorites Miraj, Emma, Andrew and Veronica. And all the pop culture, most notably in the musical (and musical theatre) variety, though potentially polarizing to some readers, was reason to celebrate and obsessively page-turn, to me. A.C. Dillon is a skilled storyteller, with a gift for dynamic characters and scene setting, both in vivid details and fitting referenced soundtrack, that give this first novel so much electricity. This is a worth the time invested kind of read that may very well turn you into an insomniac, much like Autumn, if for no other reason than you will not be able to stop reading.
I know I could not stop, and I am already missing Autumn quite a lot.
