The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
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.
Nix is a smart and capable girl, having literally traveled the world through time and even to some mythical places. As long as they have an original map, they can theoretically go anywhere in time. Nix’s best friend and shipmate, Kash, comes from a mythical land. The two have a wonderful banter of friendship and maybe a bit more. Nix’s father is obsessed with finding a map that will take them back to Nix’s mother – even if it means erasing all that Nix knows.
The Girl from Everywhere is the first in a planned, fantasy duology for young adults. This is a character-driven story with engaging characters that make the book hard to put down. Time traveling pirates wasn’t a story I could pass up. This pirate ship is like no other. Full of adventure, intrigue, drama, magic, and a bit of romance – I loved every bit of this captivating tale. And the next installment can’t come fast enough.
