Waiting on Wednesday: One by Sarah Crossan

Title: One

Author: Sarah Crossan

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Release Date: September 15th 2015

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.


 I am not a huge fan of Contemporary books, they’re actually the genre that I read least often but I am particularly excited for this novel for one reason: the premise is phenomenal. I feel like it’s going to be one of those novels that just inspires a bunch of tears and thoughts and I’m really looking forward to it!

What books are you guys waiting desperately for on this very beautiful Wednesday? Is One on your TBR list? Feel free to drop a line and tell me! Until my next blog post, I love you guys to infinity and beyond!
