Winner of the Carnegie Medal, the Children’s Books Ireland award, and the YA Book Prize and named to the White Raven list and the Indies Next List, Crossan’s poignant novel in verse is unforgettable.

For Tippi and Grace, it’s simply normal to step into the same skirt. 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 are one. And they are happy, never wanting to risk the dangerous separation surgery. But everything is changing. Their family is having money problems and they must leave the security of home schooling and go to school for the first time. And the girls’ body is beginning to fight against them. Sarah Crossan writes with beauty and sensitivity about the impossible decision the girls now face. One is a break-out novel by a true literary talent, a novel that Shelf Awareness in a starred review calls, “An exploration of intimacy . . . powerful.”

“A tender yet resilient story of closeness and identity…it’s a story of Grace, who’s built her entire identity and existence on being entwined with her sister and who now contemplates what it would mean to be a single person.”
