Because Multiples are Awesome (Waiting on Wednesday)

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Weekly book Meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.



Title: One
Author: Sarah Crossan
Release Date: September 15, 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Tippi and Grace share everything—clothes, friends . . . even their body. Writing in free verse, Sarah Crossan tells the sensitive and moving story of conjoined twin sisters, which will find fans in readers of Gayle Forman, Jodi Picoult, and Jandy Nelson.

Tippi and Grace. Grace and Tippi. For them, it’s normal to step into the same skirt. To hook their arms around each other for balance. To fall asleep listening to the other breathing. To share. And to keep some things private. The two sixteen-year-old girls have two heads, two hearts, and each has two arms, but at the belly, they join. And they are happy, never wanting to risk the dangerous separation surgery.

But the girls’ body is beginning to fight against them. And soon they will have to face the impossible choice they have avoided for their entire lives.

Why?:


There are a ton of stories about twins, from Fangirl to Jacob I Have Loved, but Sarah Crossan takes a new approach and tells the story of a pair of conjoined twins. How does it feel to be attached to your best friend day in and day out? As a twin myself, I am eager to pick up this one.

Tisha

As an INFJ Tisha doesn’t like she obsesses. Luckily, she has television, film, and books to keep her busy. Although YA is her favorite, she loves all types of books especially historical fiction. This resident Gryffindor also enjoys traveling and seeing where her wanderlusting nature will take her. Twitter
