A 2019 NEWBERY HONOR BOOK
 
"A gripping, nuanced story of the human cost of conflict appropriate for both children and adults."
                                                                                                                 -Kirkus, starred review
 
In the vein of Inside Out and Back Again and The War That Saved My Life comes a poignant, personal, and hopeful tale of India's partition, and of one girl's journey to find a new home in a divided country
 
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.
 
Told through Nisha's letters to her mother, The Night Diary is a heartfelt story of one girl's search for home, for her own identity...and for a hopeful future.
 
 
「印巴分治」事件發生在遙遠的七十多年前,然而在本書第一人稱視角的書信體兼日記的形式之下,小人物在動盪大環境中經歷的痛苦顯得歷歷在目。主角妮夏自幼就沒有母親,她在日記裡向母親訴說日常、傾吐心事。自從國家分裂後,周遭不同信仰的人們原本相安無事,卻因為一條突如其來的人為分界線,開始彼此仇視並且被迫遠離家園。妮夏平靜無波的家庭、學校生活就此產生巨變。
 
妮夏不明白,只因為信仰不同,人們就得對立?家裡的廚師是穆斯林,所以就不能和他們一起前往新印度?妮夏單純直白的叩問,卻沒有一個大人能給出恰當的回答。面對艱險的環境,即使一家人多次受到生命威脅,她仍竭盡全力凝聚家人情感,一同面對人生中無常的災厄。
