Season's Change: Summer (Book One) by Mandy Harbin

Season Crete isn’t one for surprises, but at her surprise seventeenth birthday party, she gets a big one. She learns her mother isn’t really dead. Not only that, her guardian gives her a cryptic message about her mother’s return on her next birthday, mentioning something about mysterious changes she’ll be going through up until then. Seasons’ confusion takes a solemn turn when she discovers a death certificate with her name on it dated for her eighteenth birthday.

While desperately wanting to discover the truth about her mom and these so-called changes, Season is plagued with dreams about the weather, which she cannot explain. But she also finds herself focusing on a budding romance with the hottest guy in town, Don Davis, while trying to enjoy her summer vacation, knowing it may be her last.

When Season strikes up a friendship with newcomer Chrys Gorge, she soon discovers everything isn’t always as it seems as he explains the reality of mythical gods and the danger surrounding how she fits it. He holds the key to unlocking her family secrets, but he’s interested in more than just a friendship with her . . . . And he has the power of a prophesy on his side.

Can Season discover the truth about her heritage without losing the guy she’s falling in love with?

Reviewer: RedDragonfly
I must say I never thought I would read a Young Adult book but was pleasantly surprised to find I actually liked it and I eagerly await for the next installment to the series.

It was refreshing to find the normal teenage angst of body issues, peer pressure to teenage crushes despite the paranormal aspect to the book.

My only problem with it was while the book was very descriptive on most aspectives of Season's life, it seemed to drop in important details and drag out others. I love Greek mythology and would have loved to hear more about it than just the glimpses I got.

Due to this I rate this book 3.5 stars.
