The best book I've read in years. It's a spectacular testament to love. It blows your head back
Every word in Sarah Crossan's One feels precisely chosen, each sentence crafted, page after page resonates with exact observation and lyrical awareness. So, how come it has space and light in it too? How does it manage to be a page turner and also leave room for the reader to imagine beyond the story? Perhaps, because it's written by a very good writer indeed. I urge you to read this book. Seduction guaranteed
A beautiful and moving exploration of a sibling relationship like no other, One will stay with you long after the final page.
Read, think, enjoy and weep, because the novel is quite simply an achingly sad and beautiful story about what makes any of us human
This is a strikingly brave, sensitive and unusual book that packs such a powerful emotional punch, I defy anyone not to weep at the end
An inspiring and beautiful book
Poignant, powerful, just perfect
Succinct, with a gentle lyricism, the poems are telling about immigration, prejudice, self-delusion, families and first love, on the way to a life-changing conclusion
Exquistely and touchingly written
Unreliable adults, complex friendships and family ties are explored with sensitivity in this finely crafted story
It will make you laugh and cry ...
A story of the redeeming power of love. It's beautifully written and it made me cry but it also made me laugh
This poignant, realistic tale is about learning to love and taking responsibility, and how poems can tell the truth .
Crossan's inimitable economy of language adds immediacy and intimacy to the narrative. One tackles many issues with sensitivity and honesty, never faltering from the fact that this is a difficult tale and ultimately a heart breaking story. Insightful, impactful and inspiring
