This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. “Waiting on Wednesday” spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.
Author: Sarah Crossan
Publication Date: September 15, 2015
Excerpt from Goodreads:
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.
Did you read the blurb? Are you has blown away has I am? A young adult novel about conjoined twins?! I first found this book on Epic Reads when they featured the cover. The cover is absolutely stunning and after I read the blurb, I knew this was the book for me! Now I just have to wait until September for this one…unless I can get my grabby hands on an arc copy… Double yay for diverse books!
