One by Sarah Crossan. Recommended by Austen (Library Support Assistant).
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. But can they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends? And what about love? Just as Tippi and Grace have begun to live like normal teenagers, Grace gets sick, so sick separation might be the only option left open to them. But separation could mean spending the rest of their lives in wheelchairs. Separation could mean death. And whatever happens, it means being torn apart
‘This book is both deeply moving and magical. Sarah Crossan beautifully tells the tale of two teenage Siamese twins who have been joined together since birth. Told through verse, the novel is incredibly symbolic and shows you the true meaning of love and trust. It broke my heart and mended it. Such a brilliant read!’ Austen.
