Summary

The Girl from Everywhere, the first of two books, blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility. Its sparkling wit, breathless adventure, multicultural cast, and enchanting romance will dazzle readers of Sabaa Tahir and Leigh Bardugo.

As the daughter of a time traveler, Nix has spent sixteen years sweeping across the globe and through the centuries aboard her father's ship. Modern-day New York City, nineteenth-century Hawaii, other lands seen only in myth and legend--Nix has been to them all.

But when her father gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. Rae Carson meets Outlander in this epic debut fantasy.

If there is a map, Nix's father can sail his ship, The Temptation, to any place and any time. But now that he's uncovered the one map he's always sought--1868 Honolulu, the year 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hawaiian-born 16-year-old Nix Song has spent most of her life traveling though time, navigating on her father's schooner, the Temptation. Her father, Slate, is a haunted man, addicted to opium and heartsick at having lost Nix's long-dead mother, Lin. He is anxious to return to 1860s Honolulu so he can reunite with and hopefully save Lin. To do this, he needs an accurate map of the era for 16 years, Nix and Slate have jumped through different centuries, acquiring maps that have led them astray. They have also gathered a wonderfully diverse ship's crew that now includes Nix's multilingual, roguish, Persian love interest, Kashmir. Finally they find a proper map and have a chance to actually rewrite history, but Nix, though longing for her mother's presence in her life, is understandably fearful of what this will mean for her existence. With time travel, fantasy, Hawaiian history, mythology, cute animals, and a feisty protagonist, romance and fantasy readers will find much to enjoy in this quick read, which features a conclusion suggesting a sequel.--Carton, Debbie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Debut author Heilig sets this swashbuckling time-travel adventure primarily in 19th-century Hawaii, when the islands were colonized but still had a king. Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a resourceful and multilayered heroine who navigates a tall ship across enchanted maps that lead to particular moments and places in time-some real and some mythological, depending on the map. Her father, Slate, captains the Temptation through time, in hopes of returning to the days before Nix's mother died giving birth to Nix in 1868 Honolulu; when a map from 1981 fails them, they instead land in modern-day New York City. Nix lives under the shadow of Slate's loss, and their relationship suffers for it-not to mention that Nix's life may be at stake if Slate succeeds in saving her mother. Heilig's writing is richly immersive, and a mature exploration of complicated love, both familial and romantic, underlies the story. A riveting and far-reaching fantasy that crosses seamlessly across the centuries, posing questions about fate, loyalty, and belonging. Ages 13-up. Agent: Molly Ker Hawn, Bent Agency.
