Description of this Electronic Book

Two best friends crushing on one very cute guy ... someone's going to get their heart broken. Emily has been friends with Adriana since Year One, way back when Adriana had a huge gap between her teeth and was super skinny. Emily wasn't any less awkward looking, but the girls are the best of friends and that is the way it has always been. When Adriana's mother dies, very suddenly, everything changes. Adriana's father accepts a job in Borneo and the girls spend Year 10 apart. Despite the rubbish internet connection (on Adriana's side of things) the girls manage to stay in touch. And then Adriana returns home. And she has gone from awkward to AMAZING and turned into a goddess! But the saving grace is that Adriana is no different on the inside. She's still the same best friend Emily knows and loves, and they're certainly not going to lose their friendship over the fact that Adriana has lucked out genetically. Emily just wishes that one guy, any guy, would want to get to know her for some other reason besides being Adriana's best friend. In the meantime, she's committed to helping Adriana manage the throngs of potential suitors that are texting, emailing and adding Emily on Facebook in the hope of an introduction to 'the goddess', as Adriana is still pretty shy around boys and no-one's made her want to step out of her shell. That is, until she sees the brand new and super cute guy in Emily's art class. The one who really is called Theo James and makes Emily laugh. The one who doesn't seem all that affected by Adriana's appearance. Two best friends crushing on one very cute guy ... someone's going to get their heart broken. MY BEST FRIEND IS A GODDESS is about what happens to a friendship when two girls change - and not just on the outside. Ages: 13+ 'My Best Friend is a Goddess is a sincerely sweet and seriously smart story with a lot of heart! It's a wonderful book for young girls in particular; a reminder that they are more than the sum of their parts, and encouraging them to celebrate their complexities by rejecting the labels that other people want to put on them and their bodies. It's also a celebration of female friendship that's forged in the intense flames of high school - amidst crushes, family dramas, and self-doubt - and the realisation that friends who stick around after a fallout, are the ones you really can't do without.

Author's Bio

Tara Eglington grew up in Byron Bay, NSW. Like Aurora, Tara was brought up by a real-life NAD (New Age Dad) although thankfully, he never dated her interpretive dance teacher. Surrounded by crystals, chakras and sound-based healing, Tara's only option for teen rebellion was to complete a non-arts degree and move to Sydney for a 'normal' career. She ended up following a creative pursuit anyway and wrote freelance stories for the Bridal industry, risking life and limb at Wedding Expos as she battled bridezillas for free champagne tastings, all in the name of delivering a good story.
