The Night Diary

It's 1947, and India, newly independent of British rule, has been separated into two countries: Pakistan and India. The divide has created much tension between Hindus and Muslims, and hundreds of thousands are killed crossing borders. Half-Muslim, half-Hindu twelve-year-old Nisha doesn't know where she belongs, or what her country is anymore. When Papa decides it's too dangerous to stay in what is now Pakistan, Nisha and her family become refugees and embark first by train but later on foot to reach her new home. The journey is long, difficult, and dangerous, and after losing her mother as a baby, Nisha can't imagine losing her homeland, too. But even if her country has been ripped apart, Nisha still believes in the possibility of putting herself back together....

The Night Diary Reviews

  • Nicole Means

    (Review for advanced copy) Middle school appropriate book dealing with India’s Partition in 1947. I appreciated that the story delved into the historical context but through the eyes of a confused 12 year old girl. I would recommend this book to anyone who teaches about this complicated subject as well as those who teach about the complexities of the worldwide refugee crisis. Accepting differences

    has always been a great challenge for humanity and the partition of India in 1947 is just another ex

    Nisha's family-- her father, twin brother, and grandmother, are forced to leave their home to travel south to India after the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. Nisha's late mother was Muslim, but her father is Hindu, and therefore they have to leave what has become Pakistan for India. The story of the journey is told through Nisha's diary entries, which she addresses to her mother.

    This book is intense and unflinching without being too much for middle grade readers. The complexities of Ni

    The Night Diary takes place in India during the 1947 partition that splits India into two countries-- Pakistan for Indian Muslims and India for Indian Hindus. Nisha tells the story through diary entries to her deceased mother who she longs to know. Nisha's Muslim mother died after giving birth to Nisha and her twin brother Amil. They are raised by their Hindu father, a local doctor, their father's mother and their beloved Muslim cook, Kazi, who gives Nisha her diary on her birthday. Nisha does w ...more

  • Suze Lavender

    It's 1947 and twelve-year-old Nisha lives in a country that's about to be divided. India's independence is near. When the country is being split in two, becoming Pakistan and India, Nisha and her family are in danger. It's no longer safe for them to stay in Pakistan. Nisha and her brother Amil don't exactly understand where all the fighting and hatred comes from. They're half-Muslim and half-Hindu, why can't they proudly tell anyone about that? Instead they have to leave their home together with ...more

    I received an ARC of The Night Diary from the UK distributor. I’d actually been interested in this book for quite some time. It’s set at the time of the partition between India and Pakistan, and written for a middle grade audience.

    It’s #ownvoices for Indian representation.


    I love the writing style. It’s written in the form of letters that Nisha addresses to her late mother. This gave the reading experience a very organic feeli

    “I think Islam hates us. There’s something there that — there’s a tremendous hatred there. There’s a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There’s an unbelievable hatred of us.”

    -- Donald J. Trump, 3/9/16, on CNN

    “If I had ever been here before

    On another time around the wheel

    I would probably know just how to deal

    With all of you”
