Publisher's Summary

Heidi Heilig's debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to 19th-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, blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility. Its witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, multicultural cast, and enchanting romance 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Great Story, Dismal Hawaiian Pronunciation"

    The story was simply wonderful and the performance was good, until the Hawaiian words were introduced. I was appalled by the lack of preparation by the reader for proper pronunciation of the language. Living in Hawaiʻi and working with the language daily made me more frustrated. I would have stopped listening if the story was poor. Please, take this review to performers and make sure they understand that they are performing. It only a story, but honoring a culture.

    "Disappointed"

    I was really hoping for a more adventurous story. I wanted to come aboard the ship & go to lands & times not known to me. No Bueno. To be honest, the book was a bore.

    "Good story, HORRIBLE reader."
    Would you try another book from Heidi Heilig and/or Kim Mai Guest?

    This reader should have consulted with the author or someone knowledgable of the Hawaiian language, because her enunciation sucked! Seriously, it was difficult to listen to.

    Story
    "A little fiction, myth, travel, and romance"

    This book honestly reminds me of the Tamora Pierce Tricksters Choice series. It has a mix of fiction, myth, travel, romance and a strong female heroine finding her place in a world that thinks only men can do a certain job. I enjoyed seeing the evolution of the story and the progression of the main characters as they work together and against each other to bring the story to a climax and conclusion with a twist that I was not expecting. Listen to this book, you'll like it.

    "Too many similies"

    I like a good long audiobook to fill my commute. But when the similes started piling up sentence after sentence I just couldn't take it anymore. I suspect it's a better read than an audiobook.

    Story
    "Great concept, boring execution."

    If you were thinking that the exploits of a time traveling ship would be about imaginative adventure, I just your expectations down. Well there is some interesting use of the fantasy plot device, mostly we get a pallid love triangle mostly sat in the 1800s Hawaii. The author seems totally uninterested in creating set rules are mechanics for how the travel works. I will say that I thought the book was performed very well.

    "More Twilight than swashbuckling"

    If you're looking for a teen novel love story than this is it. Characters were good but it book was more about angsty love than I was hoping for. Good performance. Not a bad time waster.

    "Refreshingly Imaginative"

    I recommend this book if you've always longed for adventure, and have time-voyaging inclinations. I have to say that the characters are what I enjoyed the most. They were lovingly fleshed out, and DIVERSE!!!!! Heilig's writing was fast paced and suspenseful, so thank goodness this seems to be a start to a series.

    Story
    "In every myth, Paradise is meant to be lost."

    It was good. But it was more like she was from Hawaii than everywhere. Never the less it was a good book. There probably won't be a sequel that tells about the conclusion of the love triangle.
