For Tara Krishnan, navigating Brierly, the academically rigorous prep school she attends on scholarship, feels overwhelming and impossible. Her junior year begins in the wake of a startling discovery: A message from an alternate Earth, light years away, is intercepted by NASA. This means that on another planet, there is another version of Tara, a Tara who could be living better, burning brighter, because of tiny differences in her choices.
The world lights up with the knowledge of Terra Nova, the mirror planet, and Tara s life on Earth begins to change. At first, small shifts happen, like attention from Nick Osterman, the most popular guy at Brierly, and her mother playing hooky from work to watch the news all day. But eventually those small shifts swell, the discovery of Terra Nova like a black hole, bending all the light around it.
As a new era of scientific history dawns and Tara's life at Brierly continues its orbit, only one thing is clear: Nothing on Earth--or for Tara--will ever be the same again."

The discovery of another planet that nearly mirrors Earth, right down to inhabitants who are close facsimiles of both well-known writers and average citizens, heralds a cosmic shift in Tara Krishnan’s life just as she begins junior year. After her best friend and fellow outcast Meg moves away for the year, Tara is accepted into the cool clique, amid other personal shake-ups including her mother’s sudden involvement with a cultlike group. Debut author Khorana keeps the science fiction elements of her story light, using Terra Nova more as a metaphor for the distortions of social image versus the true self, as well as “what if” questions that leave Tara pondering if another version of herself has made different choices with less disastrous results. Changes big and small get equal footing, with news developments that alter the history of mankind given similar attention to Tara’s musings on her crush giving her a ride to a party. For the most part, the focus is on Tara’s social struggles, which reveal that even the most outwardly perfect girls can be insecure, damaged, and flawed. Ages 12–up. Agent: Jenny Bent, Bent Agency. (June)
