A New Review is Here!

Everyone is talking about Somehow I Am Different.

After reading SIAD, Simon Goldberg, current PhD candidate at Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, former Director of Education at Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre and former Executive Director Triangles of Truth, shared the following thoughts:

"You will become engrossed in these captivating stories. Alyssa Petersel's clean, elegant prose will take you on a journey to discover the beauty and resilience of Budapest's young Jews. On this journey, she is an observer, a listener, a friend, but equally she is a participant. Moving and full of charm, this book is a meditation on belonging and what it means to be human."

Thank you, Simon! SIAD coming to Amazon on May 3, 2016. Please contact Alyssa at if you would like to get your hands on a pre-release copy.
