Now available in a gorgeous new package, Sarah Crossan's exquisite debut novel explores first love, friendship and quiet courage. It will leave you sad, happy and wanting more. Armed with a suitcase and an old laundry bag filled with clothes, Kasienka and her mother head for Engl...and. Life is lonely for Kasienka. At home her mother's heart is breaking and at school friends are scarce. But when someone special swims into her life, Kasienka learns that there might be more than one way for her to stay afloat. The Weight of Water is a startlingly original piece of fiction from multi-award-winning author, and Laureate na nOg, Sarah Crossan; most simply a brilliant coming-of-age story, it also tackles the alienation experienced by many young immigrants. Moving, unsentimental and utterly page-turning, we meet and share the experiences of a remarkable girl who shows us how quiet courage prevails.
