About the Book

Two best friends crushing on one very cute guy ... someone's going to get their heart broken.

Sixteen-year-old Emily and Adriana have been besties since Year One. Way back when Adriana had a gap between her teeth and was super skinny. Emily wasn't any less awkward looking, and ever since they've stuck together on the social sidelines. But when Adriana returns during Year 10, after having spent eighteen months overseas, she has gone from awkward to AMAZING. As in utter goddess. Thankfully, Adriana is no different on the inside. She's still the same best friend Emily knows and loves. But Emily just wishes that one guy, any guy, would want to get to know her for a reason other than being Adriana's best friend. Cue Theo ... Two best friends crushing on one very cute guy ... someone's going to get their heart broken. 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.

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.
