Praise for Almost Autumn:
"An intimate, chilling look at an individual family's experience of the Holocaust." -- Publishers Weekly
"This translated import features the cool, distanced narration often attributed to Scandinavian novels, but the accelerating pace that accompanies the changing viewpoints, together with the obviously limited number of possible outcomes, make the experience surprisingly visceral. Thoughtful and satisfying, this is as much about destiny as about the Holocaust -- families lost, lives reformed, futures unknown, love reclaimed, all by the slightest nudge of circumstance. " -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
* "[An exploration of the nature of chance and fate. " -- Horn Book, starred review
"Readers will be on the edge of their seats waiting to see what will happen." -- School Library Connection

I was moved most by the chapters narrated by the father and the cab driver. It's uncommon to see a young adult novel show the emotions of the adults, and I found it very relatable, appealing, and authentic. Without giving away too much, I was also moved by a character's narrative after a difficult journey from Norway to Germany. It was not an easy chapter to read, but history is not always easy to stomach.
This book authentically portrays how a variety of people would have reacted (or not reacted as the case often is) to German control. I was very moved by the narrative and enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Holocaust, anyone who likes history, and anyone who will not shy away from some hard truths.
