It is 1961, and 12-year-old Gerta Lowe lives in East Berlin with her mother and her older brother, Fritz. Gerta's other brother, Dominic, and her father went to look for a place to live and work in West Berlin, but the Berlin Wall was erected overnight so now the family is separated. The book tells of Gerta's struggles wanting to reunite her family and living under the oppression of the Stazi. The book does a great job of showing the tension and fear of the citizens that wanted to live freely and what lengths people were willing to go to for freedom. A wonderful story! ( )

An incredible captivating story detailing life behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany through the eyes of a child. Gerta Lowe woke one morning to find her family severed, kept apart by the Berlin Wall which had sprung up overnight, her father and brother on one side and she, her mother, and oldest brother on the other. Among the luxuries West Berliners had- freedom to indulge in modern music and fashion, and a bounty of work and food -they also offered the little liberties we often take for granted. The conflict of the Cold War as seen on a personal scale, keeping families apart and a people oppressed, has never made the words “history repeats itself,” so chilling. A thoughtful story that kept me bound in suspense to the very last word. ( )

[starred review of audio edition] Gr 5-8 – This work follows the brave journey of 12-year-old Gerta and her older brother, Fritz, as they try to leave East Berlin. ... Kate Simses’s reading is fast-paced, emotionally charged, and exciting. Her voice is clear and age-appropriate for the characters depicted. VERDICT This excellent work of historical fiction is suspenseful, realistic, and enthralling.
 
... (ages 8-12) Gerta’s family is divided into East and West after the Berlin Wall goes up practically overnight.... Gerta, her mother and her brother Fritz remain on the east side in their home, while her father and middle brother are trapped on the west side.... This take on life in Germany after World War II is interesting and timely given the immigration crises in the United States and parts of Europe today. ... "A Night Divided" is interesting in spite of some confusing decisions by Gerta and her mother, as well as some pacing issues. ... The ending in particular had some moments that didn’t feel natural or felt a bit contrived to increase tension. ...
 
Four years after the Berlin Wall went up, in 1961, 12-year-old Gerta Lowe is eager for freedom and to reunite her family. ... One day, she sees her father on a platform overlooking the wall, and she realizes he’s trying to send her a message: dig a tunnel! With the help of Fritz, the two siblings plan carefully, overcome dangerous obstacles, and then face the toughest task of all: convincing their mother to escape with them. ...the story’s palpable tension and stark details of daily life in Communist East Germany will hold readers’ interest. ... Though historical novels may not appeal to every reader, this is equally a story of pressure and friendship, suspicion and strength, forgiveness and understanding.

Gr 5-8 – It’s August 13, 1961. Young Gerta wakes up to see that the Berlin Wall has been built overnight, dividing not only her city but her family. ... Nielsen, best known for her fantasy novels, proves she is equally skilled at historical fiction.... VERDICT The novel’s strong setting and tense climax will keep readers engrossed and holding their breath until the last page.

A family is separated overnight when East Berlin erects the Berlin Wall. ... Based on historical fact, the story shines a personal light on the many families who were separated by the division of the two cities. ... As Greta, her other older brother, Fritz, and eventually their mother dig the tunnel, enduring hunger, exhaustion, and risking detection, readers will root for them with every shovelful. However, when the diggers realize the noise they hear is their father digging from the other side and that their tunnels are now only feet apart, instead of pushing through and running to freedom, they decide that they should stop and reinforce the tunnels. This decision seems ludicrous. Further implausible decisions ramp up the tension, but they also ramp up readers’ frustration levels.... Begins wonderfully; ends melodramatically. (Historical fiction. 9-12)
