The Weight of Water

Author: Sarah Crossan
Publisher: Bloomsbury

In this moving verse novel Kasienka and her mother travel from Poland to the UK to search for her father. Kasienka has a lot to deal with, mostly centred around relationships – adjusting to life in a new country, bullies at school, making new friends, her mother’s anxieties and discovering what has happened to her father. A strong swimmer, she wades her way through it all, emerging triumphant.
