#BookReview of One by @sarahcrossan


One
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary, Poetry
About the Book: Grace and Tippi. Tippi and Grace. Two sisters. Two hearts. Two dreams. Two lives. But one body.

Grace and Tippi are conjoined twins, joined at the waist, defying the odds of survival for sixteen years. They share everything, and they are everything to each other. They would never imagine being apart. For them, that would be the real tragedy.

But something is happening to them. Something they hoped would never happen. And Grace doesn’t want to admit it. Not even to Tippi.

How long can they hide from the truth—how long before they must face the most impossible choice of their lives?

Do I Recommend this book? Yes yes yes!!!

Notes and Opinions: I have to say this was the most interesting book I've read because I've never read one in poetry style. But I have to say it was BEAUTIFUL! You have a story about conjoined twins, Tippi and Grace, who honestly just want to live a normal life but everyone is treating them like a freaks. I felt so bad for them. I couldn't imagine the pain and loneliness. It beaks my heart. They thankfully got a friend, Jon, who didn't care what they looked like or what the others thought. He is honestly how true friends should be. I recommend this book to everyone.It's a beautiful and powerful story.
