One* by Sarah Crossan is the story of conjoined twins, Grace and Tippi.
At 16 Grace and Tippi are about to start a new school. This will be their first time attending school as they have been homeschooled up until now, but the funds have run out.
How will they cope with their new world? Will they make friends? How can they assert their individuality when they are seen as one by so many people? And when something happens that could change their lives forever what will they decide to do?
Written in free verse and told through the eyes of Grace, One* is a moving look at sisterhood, friendship, love and identity.
The use of free verse is glorious; Crossan has a way with words that left me speechless more than once and had me rereading passages in awe.
It is beautifully written, evocative and at times heartbreaking. One* is an excellent reminder of how brilliant YA can be and it’s one of my favourite books of the year.
One* is published on August 27th.
