The main characters in Crossan's affecting story are joined at the hip and are under constant medical and psychological care. Now is a golden time for minorities in children's fiction, with Sarah Crossan's One currently exploring the relatively unchartered fictional waters surrounding the topic of conjoined twins. Her main characters, year old Grace and Tippi, talk, joke and feel very much like other US teenagers. Yet they still attract ignorant or unkind comments, finding a note stuck to their school locker reading, "Why don't you go back to the zoo? Grace and Tippi have two heads, four arms but are joined at the hip. Home-schooled and under constant medical and psychological care, this support is threatened when their mother loses her job and already unemployed Dad can't stay off the booze.

One chronicles the story of Grace and Tippi, conjoined twins who, aged 16, have to go to school for the first time and negotiate a world of prejudice, friendship, first love and gossip. Told in verse and in the first person, this elegant, sensitive story will stimulate reflections and conversations about discrimination, diversity, difficult choices and the bonds of love. An engaging read-aloud for junior classes and a valuable book for readers about the futility of war and the importance of respecting different perspectives. This is an important novel for twenty-first century Irish Young Adult literature and for youth culture in Ireland. This absorbing book will immerse even the most reluctant reader and will spark curiosity, pleasure and pride about local environments, history, culture and the richness of modern and ancient Ireland. The books being celebrated today highlight the excellence that children both at home and abroad can expect from books created by Irish authors and illustrators. We are exceptionally lucky to be able to enjoy the skills and talents of a diverse groups of Irish authors and illustrators writing for children.
