This book was released today and I couldn’t put it down. I am a huge fan of time travel stories and The Girl from Everywhere is one of the best. It’s full of exotic places and times, as well as pirates and treasure maps. It has an amazingly unique concept behind Nix’s ability to travel through time and brilliant character you can’t help but love.
“We were sailing towards the edge of the map of Calcutta under a sky so starry it looked sugared; the night would never be as beautiful after the Industrial Revolution.
Those stars dimmed as we slipped into the Margins of the map, the slender threshold between one place and the next, where India in 1774 ran out and the next shore appeared. Mist rose around us like the souls of drowned sailors, and the only sound was the muted hollow music of waves moving along the hull. Everything seemed calm, but the seas in the Margin were unpredictable – the currents mercurial and the winds erratic – and passage was always rougher the farther afield we travelled. And, very rarely, there were ghost ships in the fog, captained by those who had found the way in, but not the way out.”
– The Girl From Everywhere, Heidi Heilig
