Sarah Crossan in Conversation

Sarah Crossan has a unique writing style. Her award-winning books The Weight of the Water and One are written entirely in verse. Sarah’s writing is honest, heartbreaking and undeniably original. What prompted her to write in this innovative form? And how did she manage to co-write her new novel, We Come Apart? She talks with writer and YA fiction expert Bec Kavanagh about the freedom and challenges of reaching an audience through verse.
