Written in verse One tells the story of conjoined twins Grace and Tippi. As finances get tight Grace and Tippi are forced to attend school for the first time. This opens them up to not only staring, looks of disgust and awkward questions but also to opportunities of friendship.

One is written from Grace’s perspective and dialogue is limited, restricting the points of view that we are privy to. As it’s written in verse each word seems to take on extra gravity and is able to be savoured. Students shouldn’t be intimidated by the verse as it is quite easy to read and follow what is happening.
