Weight of Water

Weight of Water (Library Binding, Bound for Schools & Libraries ed.)

By Crossan, Sarah

From Carnegie Award winning author Sarah Crossan, a poetic and timely immigration story that combines first love, friendship, and persistent courage. Carrying just a suitcase and an old laundry bag filled with clothes, Kasienka and her mother are immigrating to England from Polan...d. Kasienka isn't the happiest girl in the world; at home, her mother is suffering from a broken heart as she searches for Kasienka's father, and at school, Kasienka is having trouble making friends. The only time she feels comforted is when she's swimming at the pool. But she can't quite shake the feeling that she's sinking. Until a new boy swims into her life, and she learns that there might be more than one way to stay afloat. The Weight of Water is a coming-of-age story that deftly handles issues of immigration, alienation, and first love. Moving and poetically rendered, this novel in verse is the story of a young girl whose determination to find out who she is prevails.
