Back to doing Teaser Tuesdays yay! Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading (which I’m currently having trouble linking to on my iPad grr) and basically all it is is you get out your current read, open to a random page and share two sentence teasers 🙂

The book:

The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan 

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.

The teaser:

This is where we’ll live

Until we find Tata:

One room on the fourth floor

Of a crumbling building

That reminds me of history class,

Reminds me of black and white photographs

Of bombed

Out

Villages.
