Tippi and Grace share everything, clothes, shoes, and even a body. Doctors appointments and therapy is all that lies ahead of them. But after they go broke, the sisters are forced to go to a rundown private school where they meet Jon and Yasmeen. They get the twins into some bad habits. If you like a sad, funny, and heartfelt book, this one is for you!

MissYaremcio I've seen a few different reviews on this book and I think I'm going to have to read it! Great review! Remember next time to include the tone! 4mo

This is a book about conjoined sisters tipi and grace they were only supposed to live for 2 years they are now 16. For the first time have to go to school. They have to deal with stares, pictures, and bullies on the daily. However they met two friends jon and yasmene who help scare away the bullies but get tippi amd grace into some bad habits. If you enjoy books that deal with bullies and struggles of school this is a book for you.

MissYaremcio Oh this sounds like a very interesting book! I will have to add it to my to-read pile! Other than the missing capitals, this is a very well written post! 4mo
Cfischbuch I loved the very unique perspective of these girls. I felt this book was a real eye-opener, it really made me think about what that would be like. 4mo

I loved this story. You don‘t find conjoined twins as main characters ... well, ever. I liked both sisters — very different personalities. I liked the focus on their new friendships and how much they wanted to help the family, not be a burden.

I laughed often. I cried a little. I hugged the book hard.

Cecelia Ahern put it perfectly - this has broken my heart and mended it.

A beautiful, educational, touching tale about the life of conjoined twins. Not a pitiful life, not The Worst Thing Ever, but certainly a struggle, and something that we as "normal" people need to respect.

This was a beautiful and powerful and moving book told in verse. It is a quick read, but is also fully engrossing and emotional. I borrowed the ebook from my library on a whim and am totally glad I did. I haven‘t read many (if any) stories about conjoined twins before, and it was fascinating to read about this unique kind of relationship. The research Crossan did for this novel is also quite commendable.

A story about twin sisters who share half of their body since birth.
Their struggle, their happiness and daily life.
A coming of age story which will made you aw and cry a little bit.
You can read the whole 427 pages in one go because the chapters are short and the author used a different writing style. I would categorize it under YA but think that people who don‘t like the genre would also enjoy it.

I read the entire book in one sitting. I was terrified to put it down. I couldn't.

As it went on, I could almost feel my own heart aching in response. The story is so powerful, I'm not even sure how to describe it. It made me want to reach out for my loved ones and never let go.

I think the most powerful thing I can say about this book is that it's the only book I've ever read in one sitting.

Full review on Movellas.

I love the idea and I also love how it feels real; the imperfection and all. The format of the book is unique; it's more like a collection of poetries but in the end, they told us a pinch of the story smoothly. Also, like the characters! None of them I'm a fond of as much, actually, but none of them I'm hating too. And the ending! I was spoiled a bit of it so I've predicted that already, sadly, but even that so, it's still saddening. 😭

Risetnya, penuturannya, kisah para tokohnya, bentuk paragrafnya yang unik, seperti barisan puisi (poetic) dengan judul-judul per sub bab yang berisi tulisan super singkat namun maknanya sangat dalam. Agak membantu pembaca yang mungkin baru mulai menyukai buku, atau yang sedang terkena reading slump dan butuh buku yang ringkas tetapi mampu mengembalikan semangat membaca. ❤️👍🏻

One is the story of conjoined twins Tippi and Grace and their lives with each other, and their loved ones around them. I was surprised that I liked this as much I did. Tippi and Grace are never treated as freaks or inspiration porn in the story. And while in most cases I am not a big fan of the novel told in poems theme I actually couldn't stop reading because I kept going with the flow. The ending is a bit predictable but still worth the read.

#augustofpages #augustphotochallenge my favourite siblings have to be the conjoined twins in this book 'One'. I highly recommend this book, it is beautiful and heart breaking. It is written in verse, but don't let that put you off, it works so well here. Even if you don't usually read YA, I would still pick up this book.

Honourable mention to Fred and George from Harry Potter!

Heart-wrenching, beautiful, thought-provoking. I had no idea what to expect from this book, between its unusual subject matter (the life of sisters who are conjoined twins) and the fact that it's written in verse. The poetry threw me off at first but I quickly got used to it. But the story was just so affecting! This one will stick with me for a while.

After 9 hours in the car, we just checked into the site for the National Scrabble Championship, where @wanderer15 is a top seed. While he plays 31 games of Scrabble this week, I'll be lesson planning (with the stack on the top) and reading for fun (with the stack on the bottom). We're both looking forward to a fun, wordy week! :)

Conjoined twins, a story in the novel in verse style. She bases her story on real conjoined twins and how they see themselves as one. Read it in one day, well done and makes you think, why do we want them taken apart when they want to stay as one?

Here's my #Recommendsday title! One is a YA novel written in verse and tells the story of conjoined twins Tippi and Grace. How do two people live with one body? Can you separate your emotions if you are always connected to someone? This book is beautiful and deserves to be read!

MLVReads @LiteraryinLititz it is! I want to check out the new book Gemini, which is another YA about conjoined twins but it's not in verse. It's such a fascinating subject and a really great way to look at the emotional complexities that come with the physical issues. 3y

A compassionate & love-affirming look at two conjoined sisters, Tippi and Grace. The poems often take a concept, word, or phrase that comes up in the twins' lives and then uses it to frame a scene in their life. This approach to a novel-in-verse intrigues me both as a poet and as a writer of YA.
