New to the Autumn Brody series? Welcome to the paranormal world of Casteel Preparatory Academy’s finest.
Previously, I shared glimpses into the two women Autumn counts on for support and advice in Change Of Season. This time, let’s take a look at the mysterious guy Autumn can’t stop running into on campus — often literally.
Name: Andrew Daniels
Birthplace: Whitby, Ontario
Years At Casteel Preparatory Academy: 1.5
Specialty Major: Film
Visual Casting: A young Logan Lerman
Andrew — a politically-minded Film student with a passion for documentaries — is somewhat of a recluse at Casteel Prep. Having come to the school at age 17 after the death of his parents, he’s opened up to no one, aside from a fellow Film student and his favourite instructor, Gretchen Frey. It’s not that he’s anti-social. He’s just decided that it’s better to be alone with his grief than risk making connections that can be fleeting, as he’s learned from painful experience.
That is, until he spots Autumn on campus.
Andrew sees himself reflected in Autumn’s isolation. Can reaching out to her help him with his own emotional pain? Will she ever let him try?

Choice Quote: “I know that someone’s hurt you deeply. I know you need to find your way through that. I’ve had to make my own journey back from hell. I just want you to know that you don’t have to be alone.”
