Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Jennifer A. Nielsen comes a stunning thriller about a girl who must escape to freedom after the Berlin Wall divides her family between east and west. With the rise of the Berlin Wall, 12-year-old Gerta finds her family divided overnight. She, her mother, and her brother, Fritz, live on the eastern side, controlled by the Soviets. Her father and middle brother, who had gone west in search of work, cannot return home. Gerta knows it is dangerous to watch the wall, to think forbidden thoughts of freedom, yet she can't help herself.

She sees the East German soldiers with their guns trained on their own citizens; she, her family, her neighbors, and her friends are prisoners in their own city. But one day, while on her way to school, Gerta spots her father on a viewing platform on the western side, pantomiming a peculiar dance.

Then, when she receives a mysterious drawing, Gerta puts two and two together and concludes that her father wants Gerta and Fritz to tunnel beneath the wall, out of East Berlin. However, if they are caught, the consequences will be deadly. No one can be trusted. Will Gerta and her family find their way to freedom?

    I loved both the compelling story which made me count the blessings of freedom in my life and the audible production. Hats off to the author and the audio book actor! I heartily recommend.

    This book is one of my favorites. I am 12 years old and this book had kept me at the tip of my seat to see what would happen next. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a book about historical fiction, and excitement.

    "Good storyline"
    Any additional comments?

    When I started listening, and realized this story is written from a young girls perspective, I almost gave up on it, I'm so glad I didn't. The 1st chapter is really slow but into the 2nd chapter the tension builds and keeps building right up until the story ends.
    Narration was fine, because her voice was in keeping with a young girl.
    All in all, the story was well written, interesting and compelling enough to keep the attentions of 2 mature people.

    "Really good book"

    I had to choose a book for a book report for school and is book looked really interesting took a long time to read but certainly worth it. I hope more people would read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes slow starting nonfiction history "action" (e action doesn't come in the beggining toward the middle and the end) thankyou for reading my review

    Story
    "My daughter and I listened together"
    What made the experience of listening to A Night Divided the most enjoyable?

    Listening to it with my 10 year old and pausing to discuss what was happening in the world then. And especially how she could relate to being close to being the same age.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because it was emotionally draining. Then tension - the ugliness that was happening in the world. But still compelling to want to finish.
