Autumn Street is an extraordinary book with a lot of heart and meaning to it. So, with that being said, the summary. The year was 1940. Everybody was afraid that the Germans were going to bomb the east coast, and with Lizzy’s father being out in war, Lizzy and her family move in with the grandparents, who are very well off. Because her father is out in war and her older sister, Jessica, won’t play with her, Liz is lonely (with the exception of Tatie.) Tatie is the maid, but in all household departments. Tatie has one grandson, Charles, who always hides away in the pantry. One day, Lizzy is so lonely that she gets curious of Charles. She asks him to play with her, and he takes her offer. She plays and wanders with him. They see their neighbors, go on spy missions, and just have a great time. Soon, a special relationship has formed. They go through some tragedies together, so now they’re the best of friends. But then comes an unexpected day in the snow. The biggest tragedy of all happens, and they aren’t together for it.
