This week I am waiting on The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig (February 16, 2016)

Summary from 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.  

Why I'm Waiting

I'm a sucker for time travel and boats, so a time travelling boat? Yes please! I don't know much about historical Hawai'i, just the basics, so it will be very cool to read about it.  And the travel being completely paradoxical sounds so awesome!  I can't wait for this one!

  1. The fact that this book is partially set in nineteenth-century Hawaii makes me automatically want to read it. I love when books are set in unique places/time periods. Excellent Wow choice. Definitely adding this to my Goodreads!
