The Night Diary

Veera Hiranandani

Half-Muslim, half-Hindu twelve-year-old Nisha doesn't know where she belongs, or what her country is anymore. When her family is forced to flee their home in the aftermath of the 1947 separation of Pakistan and India, Nisha embarks on a treacherous journey that she records in a series of letters written to her late mother. Ages 8 to 12.
