Tidbit Tuesday – One


 

Dragon’s real name is Nicola,

but Tippi and I changed it

when she was two,

when she fierce and fire-breathing,

stomping around the apartment and

chomping on crayons and toy trains.

 

Now she’s fourteen and a ballet dancer

she doesn’t stomp anywhere –

she floats.

 

Lucky for her she’s completely normal.

 

Although

 

I do wonder if being our sister

sucks sometimes,

 

if being our sister

makes her a freak

too.

A Freak Like Us, Page 10


One by Sarah Crossan

Grace and Tippi are twins – conjoined twins.

And their lives are about to change.

No longer able to afford homeschooling, they must venture into the world – a world of stares, sneers and cruelty. Will they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends? And what about love?

But what neither Grace or Tippi realises is that a heart-wrenching decision lies ahead. A decision that could tear them apart. One that will change their lives even more than they ever imagined…

From Carnegie Medal shortlisted author Sarah Crossan, this moving and beautifully crafted novel about identity, sisterhood and love ultimately asks one question: what does it mean to want and have a soulmate?
