The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Publication Date: February 16th 2016
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.
This is yet another time travel based book that I am so excited to read. From the summary alone this book sounds like everything I want in time travelling books. First, we have all the various locations Nix has visited and what particularly stood out was the fact that the central plot line looks to be based around Hawaii aka one of my top 5 must visit places.
I also love the fact that this book looks at the consequences of time travel and the choice and desire one might have to go back and change things even though it will permanently alter someone’s life. So with these historic and fascinating locations, the consequences of change, and what looks to be a beautiful, budding romance, I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.
What’s your most anticipated book?
