The Young Survivors (by Debra Barnes)

I am an avid fan of historical fiction books that take place during WWII. This was an emotional read and it was made more so because the author shares the similarities of her mother’s experiences as a holocaust survivor. The characters were well developed and the story is a vivid portrayal of what the Laskowski children endure at the hands of the Nazis. There were a few things that left me unsatisfied … the ending was rushed and there could have been more closure between some of the characters. But other than these issues, this was a touching and engaging story that will tug at your heartstrings.

Thank you to NetGalley and Duckworth Books for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
