A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen

     A Night Divided
by Jennifer A. Nielsen, is about a girl named Gerta and her family who wake up in the middle of the night when the Berlin Wall is being built. At the time, her father and little brother are out on a mission so they end up getting separated from the rest of the family. Gerta and her older brother Fritz decide they are going to try and escape by digging a tunnel underground while their mother is away visiting family. Along the way they face challenges and struggles.
    I really enjoyed this book because, it had some adventure and you never really knew what was going to happen next. My favorite part of this book was when Gerta started digging the hole underground because it was like she was just tired of everything that was going on and wanted to escape. I related to this book because it´s like when one of your friends move away and you want to find a way to be with them again.

    1. I learned that people had to stay on what ever side their we on and some people were split apart from their family's. Some people were shot if they tried to go over .We must both like pandas since our usernames have the word panda in it .
