Waiting on Wednesday (29) The Girl from Everywhere

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

This week, I'm excited about...

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)Title: The Girl from Everywherei
Author: Heidi Heilig
Pages: 464
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Release Date: February 16, 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.

In The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance.

Okay, seriously.  Time travel!  Need I say more?  I got denied by Harper on EW for this.  So I'm kinda sad.  They have never approved me.  So I will just have to wait until February.

What are you waiting on?

  3. Ooh, I'm extremely excited for this one as well! I got it on Edelweiss and I might wait until a bit closer to release date to read it anyway, but I AM SO STOKED. I've only read a few time travel books and I would definitely want to read more. Lovely pick! :D
