Armed with a suitcase and an old laundry bag filled with clothes, Kasienka and her mother head for England. 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; 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.

It was written in a form of a song but it was a short story. That made the reading very difficult. The story had no deeper meaning. I give it two stars.

And I read. Slowly I read. In English.

About Plath’s desire to die.

And I wonder if I could do that.

I wonder if I could surrender.

And take my last breaths

Instead of living with a rock

In my belly.

Before we’ve even left Gdańsk Główny.
