- Grace and Tippi are identical, conjoined twins. They are joined at the waist, and for the past sixteen years they have shared everything. The girls each have two hearts, and two separate dreams from one another. They have two different lives, but they share the same body. However, now something is happening to them, something they never hoped would ever occur to them. Now, they must decide if they would rather run and hide from the truth, or make the most impossible choice of their lives.
- The cover, title, and premise of the novel is just fantastic. The presentation is appealing and fascinating. I have been highly anticipating this novel since I have heard of it's release date. I have never actually read a novel about conjoined twins, although I've seen many movies on them. Twins have always sounded amazing, a person who is your other half. In this case, the person is literally your other half. I rated One five stars because the emotional impact of the novel felt quite strong, and I did tear up a tittle. It's a powerful novel, one that you might remember for the rest of your lifetime. The writing and everything else is four stars, however, I happened to fall in love with this book so it deserves a five stars from me.
- Grace and Tippy are two shades of the same person.. sometimes. Grace seems more well-behaved, nicer, and calm although, Tippy is more blunt, loud, and outspoken. The two sisters love each other dearly, and they can't imagine life without one another. It was intriguing to see how the girl's stories revolve around each other. Most conjoined twins choose separation in the end, so I have always wonder how their lives were before surgery or even if they choose not to proceed through it. How do they share a bathroom together? What happens when they're married? How do they work? What happens when one of them loves/likes another person? What happens when they decide to separate? It's a bit obvious with the premise that separation might be involved. The predictability is there, although it's still wonderful to know what occurs next in the novel. So many questions, and it's fascinating the book touched on these topics. It shows the struggle of two girls, and how they have two separate minds and hearts, yet their lives must revolve around each other. It's a thought-provoking novel and I loved both of the girls. Grace plays a bigger role in the story, so I was a tad bit closer to her although, the twins were amazing and hilarious together. It's clearly her story, although I wish Tippy had a fair share of the book too.
- The world-building plot was just amazing, as a reader, I couldn't wait to find out what happens next in the novel. The writing was beautiful and in prose. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of prose writing because a lot of blank spaces bother me in writing. I'm not too fond of poetic language, although I like it much more after reading all of Ellen Hopkin's books. It's more of a fast paced novel and the verses go by quickly.The verses were beautiful though, and they did make you feel quite a lot without saying much. The writing style is effective, and the author sure delivers in the novel. There's nothing I actually disliked about the novel, although I do wonder how the ending will progress more. It's a satisfying ending and there aren't any cliffhangers, however, I wonder if the author has a sequel in mind. If not, it's still a stunning novel. I'm definitely going to check out more of the author's work now. Young adult literature this year has really taken off, beautiful concepts with ordinary characters. One does touch the reader's heart through the themes of love, friendship, and family.
