Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


The Girl From Everywhere - Heidi Heilig
ISBN - 9780062380753
Publisher - Greenwillow
Release date - February 16 2016
Find - Goodreads

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.


A severe case of cover love and the synopsis sounds fantastic!  Imagine being able to sail to any place in any time, regardless of whether it's real or fictional. I'll take that adventure please...

  3. What a brilliant ability that would be to have! I think I did get this one so I should be reading it soon. But the idea is so creative and I am looking forward to the world building (hopefully) being done well as we explore reads :3
