Description of this Book

Now available in a gorgeous new package, this exquisite novel explores the bond between daughters and mothers, forgiveness, and the healing power of words. When Apple's mother returns after eleven years of absence, Apple feels whole again. She will have an answer to her burning question - why did you go? And she will have someone who understands what it means to be a teenager - unlike Nana. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bittersweet, and Apple wonders who is really looking after whom. It's only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is that she begins to see things as they really are. Multi-award-winning author, and Laureate na nOg, Sarah Crossan tells a moving, perceptive and beautifully crafted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This poignant, realistic tale is about learning to love and taking responsibility, and how poems can tell the truth ... * Sunday Times Book of the Week * A story of the redeeming power of love. It's beautifully written and it made me cry but it also made me laugh * The Bookbag * Poignant, powerful, just perfect * Cathy Cassidy on THE WEIGHT OF WATER * Succinct, with a gentle lyricism, the poems are telling about immigration, prejudice, self-delusion, families and first love, on the way to a life-changing conclusion * The Sunday Times - Children's Books of the Week on THE WEIGHT OF WATER * Exquistely and touchingly written * Irish Times on THE WEIGHT OF WATER *
