A Night Divided by Jennifer Nielsen

The Berlin Wall is built overnight splitting Berlin in half.  Gerta remains in communist East Berlin with her mother and older brother, Fritz, where the government and rules are very strict.  Gerta’s father and her other brother, Dominic, are caught on the democratic western side while visiting.  To Gerta, the western side of Berlin represents freedom and independent thinking.

Will Gerta’s family ever be reunited?

A NIGHT DIVIDED by Jennifer A. Nielsen draws the reader in with concern and an anxious interest for the Lowe family.  The anticipation and intrigue grow as the story unfolds.

This is a great work of Historical Fiction, and a wonderful companion to a middle school curriculum.
