Armed with a suitcase and an old laundry bag, Kasienka and her mother head for England. Life is lonely for Kasienka. At home her mother’s heart is breaking; 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.
Written in free-verse, this is a unique and utterly beautiful novel. Kasienka’s story is a heartbreaking coming of age which deals with issues of immigration, bullying and finding your place in the world. This spellbinding story for teens comes highly recommended from our children’s section manager Ruth and is particularly recommended for students who struggle to have an interest in poetry.
