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

  • Shauna Yusko

    4 for writing and adult appeal. Good characters and historical setting.

    3 for tween/teen interest.

    Several books that would pair with it.

  • Sarah

    1947 partition of India, bireligious family, Muslim, Hindu, diary, twin siblings, refugee, diary-form minimizes character development, basic prose that sweet but missing passion/urgency, accessible to middle school readers without being graphic

    This book, you guys. Wow. What a treasure. An award contender for sure. I'll be thinking about Nisha for a long time.

  • Zayda (Babybibliophile)

    Addictive read that captured me immediately! I could not stop reading. This story follows a young girl and her journey across the border when India split into two countries. She keeps a diary and writes letters to her mother who is in heaven. As I read, I could feel everything that she was going through. Every emotion. This was an awesome book!

    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 was super excited about this book but it wasn't as amazing as I had hoped it would be. The format didn't really work for me. The epistolary format just made everything feel a bit distant. There were some really great things about the book as well though - I really liked the concept and most of the characters, and there were some really, really moving and well-written scenes.

    Full review coming soon!
