Every so often a book will come along which gets the WHOLE world talking, and right now it's Sarah Crossan's new novel, One. It's nominated for pretty much every literature prize going including the Carnegie Medal and the YA Book Prize, so if you haven't heard about it yet then where have you been, pal?

Before we tell you exactly why it needs to be at the very top of your To Read list, we've got the first look at the super snazzy cover, too. Here's a sneaky peek at what One is gonna look like on your bedside table. OOH, pretty.

In a nutshell, One is a must-read, and if you don't believe us then you only need to look at the amount of nominations it's scooped recently. It's been shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie
Medal, the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards, the
CBI Book of the Year Award, the IBW Award and the
YA Book Prize. Phew.

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, and leave them asking what it really means to want and have a soulmate.

It's seriously moving and a pretty extraordinary story - and today's your lucky day because we've got a free extract for you. Get your nose stuck into the beginning of One below:
