Apple and Rain
By

Rating
When Apple's mother returns after eleven years of absence, Apple feels whole again. She will have an answer to her burning question - why did you go? And she will have someone who understands what it means to be a teenager - unlike Nana. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bitter sweet, and Apple wonders who is really looking after whom. It's only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is, that she begins to see things as they really are. Like a brilliant hybrid of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson, Sarah Crossan entices you into her world, then tells a moving, perceptive and beautifully crafted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry.

Reviews

This poignant, realistic tale is about learning to love and taking responsibility, and how poems can tell the truth... * Sunday Times, Pick of the Week * A story of the redeeming power of love. It's beautifully written and it made me cry but it also made me laugh * The Bookbag * Poignant, powerful, just perfect * Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER - Cathy Cassidy * Succinct, with a gentle lyricism, the poems are telling about immigration, prejudice, self-delusion, families and first love, on the way to a life-changing conclusion * Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER The Sunday Times - Children's Books of the Week * Exquistely and touchingly written * Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER - Irish Times *
