#Review: Return to Autumn by John Richards | #Giveaway @YABoundToursPR

Return to Autumn

Genre: Upper YA Contemporary Fiction/Coming of Age
Release Date: October 14th 2016

Adam Raynor and his best friends started the summer of 1992 with their usual antics. Each of them in their own way preparing for their last year of high school and the interruption of their friendship that college would bring. What they didn't know was how getting a girlfriend, using drugs and experiencing the death of someone close would turn their worlds upside down.

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book as part of this blog tour.

First of all, how pretty is that cover?!  The simplicity is so refreshing to see. Not that coves with a lot going on are bad, it's just nice to see something simple like this now and again.

This is a quickish read. If you're like me (a speed-reader), then you could finish this in one sitting. I really like that this story takes place in 1992 and some of 1993. Having been born in '93, I feel something special about that. Following Adam and his friends as they transition into adulthood was really great. You can tell that the author has put a lot of thought into writing this story. There were moments when I felt that maybe Adam could have been a bit more developed, but all in all, he is a great character and I loved reading him.
