Description

Bestselling author Jeremy Whitley begins a new series on kids baffled by
their real identities.
Tara Smith's parents are super strict with all
their rules and routines, and Tara is a dutiful daughter. Rule #1: No friends
her own age. Rule #2: keep her bracelet on, or else. But when she breaks her
routine-and then loses her bracelet-she's in trouble.
Now
outed as an extraterrestrial after wielding fire and losing her humanoid form,
Tara is captured by the government. She's given two options: get shipped
far away where she won't be a danger to anyone or stay on Earth and join a
school for other extraterrestrial girls like her. Things at the school
aren't easy-especially for the girl whose only friends were
textbooks. But Tara's goal to learn how to control her powers is soon
sidelined by the discovery that the people she's called Mom and Dad all
these years aren't her parents.
