As teenager Jack is dying, having fallen through ice on a frozen pond, Gaia offers him a job as a Season, an immortal being who shepherds a particular season in a particular part of the world. He becomes a Winter, pursued and killed every year by Fleur, his Spring counterpart. As time goes on, Jack and Fleur start falling for each other, disrupting the order mandated by Chronos and sparking wider resistance to following his commands. This nifty tale is rooted in the Greek mythology of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Cronus/Kronos (Gaia's son and overseer of time), although it departs from the myth in its details. Cosimano's adventure story of the fugitive, star-crossed lovers develops in two parts: In the first, Jack, Fleur, and friends follow the rules. In the rest, they are on the run. With lots of action, fairly flat characters that still claim our affections, and an exploration of when and how much to trust those in authority, the story asks whether you will be the user or the used. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
