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....

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus

    On the eve of the Partitioning of India in 1947, Nisha is struggling to understand the implications of the end of British rule on her half-Hindu, half-Muslim family, and writes diary entries to the mother who passed away when she and her twin brother Amil were born in order to process events. Her father, a Hindu doctor, feels that the family must leave their town, which has ended up as an area designated to be Muslim. Long time family cook Kazi is Muslim (as was Nisha's

    Nisha and her family are forced to leave their home because of conflict as India splits into two countries, India and Pakistan, after gaining its independence from Britain. The story is told by Nisha as she writes letters to her mother who died giving birth to her and her twin brother. Nisha's letters show her confusion about what is happening in her country, her wish for things to stay as they are, and her longing for her mother. My heart broke in places and I was moved in others.

    “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

    It was soo good, even though there was a little violence.

  • Beth Bryden-miller

    Written from the perspective of a 12 year old girl during the 1947 India/Pakistan partition in diary form. I wish it had been written in a different form, by using the diary form, there is a separation between the protagonist and the reader. I felt like the written wasn't vivid enough to carry the intensity of the setting.

  • Katy

    The Night Diary's beautiful and heartbreaking story about refugees during the partition of India could not have been released at a more relevant time. I especially loved that the main characters were “half Muslim and half Hindu” which highlighted the fraught mental and physical circumstances stemming from this complicated identity. This is a wonderful middle grade novel that I hope children will read in schools.
