2.0 out of 5 stars Bitty, 27 April 2013
This review is from: The Weight of Water (Paperback)
This is quite a clever way to
Cover a lot of paper and justify
Charging £ 8.99
For a book whose content is slight and really
pretty
banal and
consists of a story about immigrants
(very
fashionable)
Together with

Bullying and boyfriends which are neither
of
them
particularly original

And a heroine with sporting prowess
which is the only prowess some people
seem to have any
respect
for
nowadays

Presumably it's the politically correct subject
matter and the
unusual
format
which put it in line for the Carnegie, but

it's rather like putting sugar-free lemonade in for a
prize for vintage
Champagne.

One thing though:
it's not about death
which we get much too much of in Carnegies these
days.
