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.

Most upsetting and Happy book I have ever read, you really should grabs some tissues before you get to the end. I am a twin and separation is different for everyone whether you are conjoined or not. Very emotional book, But I LOVE IT!!

Fast read and a good one! The one feels real as you are reading it.

Well-written, but a fast read in free verse. Sad, poignant, and genuine, offering a credible voice to what it would feel to be a conjoined twin in shared bodies. Grab your tissue.

Well written, fast read. At first I was put off by the free verse formatting of the book. But I gave it a chance and wound up finishing it in a night. It's very sweet and powerful. The author put a lot of research into the lives of conjoined twins and it shows and brings a very real voice to them.

A beautiful, poignant story told in a convincingly teen voice (and in free verse which totally works and isn't annoying!) that speaks of being different, of falling in love, and of family. Both teens and adults should read this book.
