The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sarah Crossan’s most recent book, One, is one of my favourites of the year so far, so I was excited to read her other book written in verse. I really like this style and quickly got used to reading poems again instead of chapters. I love having these little bite-sized pieces of story. I really felt for Kasienka and everything she was going through at such a young age: moving to a strange country, her parents separated, her father missing and the bullies tormenting her at school. The ending is open but it’s very sweet and hopeful.
