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…
I bought this book awhile ago. I wanted to read more diversely, I wanted to read about subjects not normally portrait. One by Sarah Crossan is such a book. As you can read in the synopsis this book is about conjoined twins. A subject matter I wanted to learn more about. Both about the physical/medical implications and the emotional/psychological aspect. I am a 139 pages in and so far I enjoy it. I feel it will be a very impactful read. A book you don’t easily forget about.
