One

One by Sarah Crossen

Grace and Tippi have never spent a second of their lives apart from each other. The conjoined twins have defied every doctors’ prediction and lived a relatively normal life. Now sixteen, they are starting at a private school for the first time. High school is hard enough for normal teens, but Tippi and Grace are always stared at and mocked wherever they go.  As if navigating school isn’t hard enough, a truth they’ve never wanted to admit is surfacing, and they soon must make the hardest choice they’ll ever make.

This book was one of the best I’ve ever read. It was written in a poetry form, which brought out and made real the emotions and thoughts that a conjoined twin might have. I’ll admit, it made me cry! I loved how Sarah Crossan made Grace and Tippi so unique but so close and dedicated to each other. You could understand their longing for a normal life, but satisfaction with who they were. This book was beautifully written and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a unique but realistic book!!
