One by Sarah Crossan

Blurb: Grace and Tippi are twins – conjoined twins.

And their lives are about to change.

No longer able to afford homeschooling, they must venture into the world – a world of stares, sneers and cruelty. Will they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends? And what about love?

But what neither Grace or Tippi realises is that a heart-wrenching decision lies ahead. A decision that could tear them apart. One that will change their lives even more than they ever imagined.

Last year I went to the Hay Festival, click here to read about my experience http://larawhitfield.co.uk/?p=394. Anyway, I went to see the winner of the YA shortlist award and this book one. So here is my long promised review of the winner.

I really loved this book! It was interesting as Sarah Crossan has written the whole book in verse. Please don’t think that it is a book with a load of silly rhymes in it, because it isn’t. Even though it is written in verse, it doesn’t actually rhyme. It’s just like reading a normal book but there is more flow to it. This book is about conjoined twins hence the name of the book. My favourite characters were obviously Grace, Tippi and Dragon. All the characters had very different and sometimes clashing personalities which made the book really interesting. I read this book within a couple of days because I couldn’t put it down. This was a really sad book. So if you don’t like that kind of thing then this probably isn’t for you. I nearly cried at the end, read it to find out why. I would recommend this to girls and give it 10 out of 10 stars. Enjoy!

P.S. There will be a new page on my blog shortly called ‘Book of the Year’ where I will be announcing my favourite book from each year. It will be up really soon so keep your eyes peeled. I will say when it is up on my twitter – Njtbbtc – and Instagram – NJTBBTC.
