    (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 complica...

    I was excited to see/read a book about something different - it is not common to see children's or many books in general about the Partition of India. So for that I appreciate this book - and I appreciate the story overall. Beyond that, while the other moms and girls from our book club...

    I enjoyed this book and thought it might be a good one for my historical fiction book clubs. The main character is a Hindu Indian during partition and she has to leave her home in India to go to the new India because of her religion. It is interesting and appropriate and was a part of ...

    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...

    Gorgeously written and incredibly gentle despite the topic which could have easily become simply bloody and violent. Read after AHIMSA by Supriya Kelkar for an amazing experience. ...

    Filled with gorgeous language and vivid imagery, The Night Diary tells the story of one family after India gained its independence from the British Commonwealth in 1947 and was divided into two countries. Nisha's father is Hindu and her late mother was Muslim, leaving Nisha feeling tor...

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

    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 brot...

    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 ...

    Loved this historical novel about a young girl and her family forced to leave their home after the partition of India creates the country of Pakistan. It reminded me a lot of Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl in the style of writing and I would hand it to kids who are interested in hi...

    5 stars RTC ...

    4 for writing and adult appeal. Good characters and historical setting. 3 for tween/teen interest. Several books that would pair with it. ...

    I don't give many books five stars but this one is well deserved. Utterly lost in this book and now I need to know more about India and Pakistan in 1947. Definitely suffering from a book hangover. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) This is an intensely emotional story about family, bravery, and migration. Not only are characters touching, but the format of the book is stunning. Nisha is wri...

    The Night Diary begins in July 1947, just a month before the end of British rule in India and the Partition, the division of British India along religious lines into the two separate and independent countries of India (Hindu) and Pakistan (Muslim/Sikh) between August 14-15. Twelve-year...

    Richie?s Picks: THE NIGHT DIARY by Veera Hiranandani, Dial, March 2018, 272p., ISBN: 978-0-7352-2851-1 ?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...

    ?????/5 for THE NIGHT DIARY by @VeeraWrites. Thanks to the publisher, @PenguinKids for the ARC for @Kidlitexchange. All opinions are my own. _*_*_*_*_* Nisha, a twelve year old twin who loves to cook and is exceptionally quiet, faces great challenges when she and her family...

    I loved the concept of ?The Night Diary?! Veera Hiranandani has done a wonderful job in portraying how the Indian Independence affected the lifestyles of an average family. She realistically depicts the hardships that someone would have faced to move from Pakistan to India during t...

    Nisha is the young writer of the diary entries that reveal her first-person view of the forced migration of Muslims and Hindu people when India was partitioned into two countries: India and Pakistan. That topic, likely to be obscure to adult and young readers at the start, will become ...

    (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 complica...

    I was excited to see/read a book about something different - it is not common to see children's or many books in general about the Partition of India. So for that I appreciate this book - and I appreciate the story overall. Beyond that, while the other moms and girls from our book club...

    I enjoyed this book and thought it might be a good one for my historical fiction book clubs. The main character is a Hindu Indian during partition and she has to leave her home in India to go to the new India because of her religion. It is interesting and appropriate and was a part of ...

    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...

    Gorgeously written and incredibly gentle despite the topic which could have easily become simply bloody and violent. Read after AHIMSA by Supriya Kelkar for an amazing experience. ...

    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 cir...

    lovely lovely lovely ...

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