2015 book 132

Jennifer Nielsen's A Night Divided
I read two books today that had some weird similarities--both were by fantasy authors writing new books set in real historical times. This one stressed me out even more than the Rae Carson one did! It's set in East Berlin, shortly after the wall went up--and it's about a girl whose father and brother were in West Berlin that night, and the family has been separated ever since. But she's determined to escape West. YIKES. Good stuff, though it felt a tiny bit simplistic (probably because it's middle-grade). B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in August.
