Heidi Heilig’s debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to nineteenth-century Hawaii to places of myth and legend. Sixteen-year-old Nix has sailed across the globe and through centuries aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. But when he gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. The Girl from Everywhere, the first of two books, will dazzle readers of Sabaa Tahir, Rae Carson, and Rachel Hartman.
Nix’s life began in Honolulu in 1868. Since then she has traveled to mythic Scandinavia, a land from the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, modern-day New York City, and many more places both real and imagined. As long as he has a map, Nix’s father can sail his ship, The Temptation, to any place, any time. But now he’s uncovered the one map he’s always sought—1868 Honolulu, before Nix’s mother died in childbirth. Nix’s life—her entire existence—is at stake. No one knows what will happen if her father changes the past. It could erase Nix’s future, her dreams, her adventures . . . her connection with the charming Persian thief, Kash, who’s been part of their crew for two years. If Nix helps her father reunite with the love of his life, it will cost her her own.
In The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance.
Guuuuyyyysssss. If you haven’t heard of this book you’re probably one of the last few. But this book it looks so amazing! Who doesn’t want time travel right?? I love the idea of traveling on a ship through time, all using old maps. I mean, for me I’d probably rather use a TARDIS than have to maintain an actual ship. But hey, if it meant time travel I think I’d be up for just about anything.
I’m just saying the first place I would go is the opening of Disney World in Florida. Then I’d probably try and go into the future and just buy all of the books (Including this one) and get all of the season sets of my favorite shows to bring back home and then just read and binge to my hearts content. What about you all? Where would you want to go?
