review 1: The weight of water was quite an easy read, but that didn't stop me from reading the book. I loved the way the words on each page were written as though it was a poem. The book was also very interesting and I enjoyed reading the book.

A country that doesn't speak her fluent language must be hard for everyone. She then has to be moved a grade down for it. Her feelings are true and relatable no matter how different the circumstance. She's confident but going through what every teenager goes through.What I know for certain is that in a few years time I will pick this book up again and read every stanza and try to get the meanings and look at the structure of it all. I did so this time but not with a pen and paper. I think after a few more poetry books I will understand this book better. less

Written in verse, so a quick read. Poignant view of life through the eyes of a young teen.
Loved it. Kind of surprised I did because it's written in verse.
Great free verse novel
