Summary / Annotation
Brings the past to life! submitted by flemingj on June 15, 2019, 3:42pm I knew in an a academic sense about The Partition, but The Night Diary taught about the people who survived this time. The uncertainty, violence, and suffering was brutal. The family at the center of the story is still in my thoughts months later.
A Good Read submitted by betsywil on August 26, 2019, 2:32pm This middle grade novel uses diary format to show the impact of the partition of India on ordinary people and families - and tells a compelling story, too.
