By Sarah Crossan
Greenwillow Books, 2015. 400 pages. Young Adult

Grace and Tippi are conjoined twins who have been home schooled for sixteen years.  But when funds get tight, they make the difficult decision of going to school for the first time ever.  But as they begin to make friends and have new experiences, their health takes an unexpected turn.

Two strong, distinct voices come from the sisters, who struggle with their condition but who will raise a lot of awareness for the reader of what life is like for conjoined twins - how it is hard, and also how it is NOT as negative as you might think. This is a great book for any teen (or adult), great for discussions, great for building empathy and understanding, and is written beautifully.
