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.

Moving, unsentimental and utterly page-turning, we meet and share the experiences of a remarkable girl who shows us how quiet courage prevails.

              I am not who I say I am, and Marla isn't who she thinks she is. I am a girl trying to forget. She is a woman trying to remember. Allison has run away from home and with nowhere to live finds herself hiding out in the shed of what she thinks is an abandoned house. But the house is...n't empty. An elderly woman named Marla, with dementia, lives there - and she mistakes Allison for an old friend from her past named Toffee. Allison is used to hiding who she really is, and trying to be what other people want her to be. And so, Toffee is who she becomes. After all, it means she has a place to stay. There are worse places she could be. But as their bond grows, and Allison discovers how much Marla needs a real friend, she begins to ask herself - where is home? What is a family? And most importantly, who is she, really?

              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.
