Terra Publisher's Summary
For Terra, the human alien, fitting in was never an option.
"Terra is delightful...wise, funny, and above all, human." (Neil Gaiman)
Abducted from Earth as a baby by a well-meaning alien, Terra has grown up far across the galaxy on planet Fnrr. Terra has always known she was different. Her skin isn’t grey. Her eyes are a weird blue color. She has... ears.
And now, Terra is starting high school. A daunting prospect, even without being the only human in class.
There’s lots to like about life on Fnrr. Society is ordered and peaceful - founded on reason, logic, and the pursuit of knowledge. However, its inhabitants are blissfully unaware of the impending invasion that could destroy their way of life forever.
Before long, Terra will find herself propelled into a fierce battle to save the world she calls home.
A story for young listeners - or adults who remember being one - Mitch Benn’s Terra is a warm and witty coming-of-age sci-fi adventure for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. Escape into a story of hope, discovery, and the unbreakable bonds we naively refer to as "humanity".
Praise for Terra:
"Terra is delightful.... I found myself thinking of Roald Dahl, Douglas Adams, and Terry Pratchett, but the voice and story are uniquely Mitch Benn’s. Wise, funny, and above all, human." (Neil Gaiman)
"Mitch Benn is a very fine writer, and Terra is a very fine book." (The Independent)
"High-end deadpan sci-fi silliness...with added warmth. For a story set light years away, it feels wonderfully human." (Matt Haig)
Terra is book one in The Terra Trilogy. Terra's World and Terra's War, the second and third books in the trilogy, will be coming soon.
