2¢ Worth: When Autumn Leaves wasn't the autumnal jewel I was hoping for. Apart from the gorgeous yet misleading cover (it changes seasons and spends very little time on fall) the structure of the story was really frustrating. Autumn (the town witch and enchantment guru) is looking for a successor and each chapter is a tiny window into one of those candidates. So what made it frustrating? Just when you start rooting for someone, you are introduced to someone else. Just when you think you're starting to understand the magic that chapter is alluding to, the story changes gears. None of the characters get any closure and ultimately the story lacked glue. It was if each chapter was piece of a pie that never really came together as a whole.
