‘AÂ brilliant,Â beautifulÂ debut.Â Reading it will change your heart’Â Christian Kiefer, author ofÂ Phantoms
The Long Way to a Small, Angry PlanetÂ meetsÂ The 100Â in this unforgettable debut by a brilliant new voice.
A century ago, scientists theorised that a habitable planet existed in a nearby solar system. Today, ten astronauts will leave a dying Earth to find it. Four are decorated veterans of the 20th century’s space-race. And six are teenagers, graduates of the exclusive Dalton Academy, who’ve been in training for this mission for most of their lives.
It will take the team twenty-three years to reach Terra-Two. Twenty-three years spent in close quarters. Twenty-three years with no one to rely on but each other. Twenty-three years with no rescue possible, should something go wrong. And something always goes wrong.
Don’t miss one ofÂ CosmopolitansÂ books by people of colour to get excited about in 2019, called ‘a tightly wound epic’ that ‘will change your heart’ by Christian Kiefer, author ofÂ Phantoms.
WHY READERS DREAM OF TERRA-TWO . . .
‘An ambitious 500-page coming-of-ageÂ blockbusterÂ . . .Oh is excellent at portraying theÂ aching sense of lossÂ on a one-way trip to the stars’Â Guardian
‘AÂ tightly wound,Â emotional epicÂ that asks important questions about humanity, goodness, belief, technology, love, friendship, and duty.
