"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, 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"--… (més)

This book is fun and engaging from the opening scene. The story itself is interesting, and you don't really know how it's going to end up as it unfolds but it's a great journey to follow, with some interesting history and myths included. The characters are pretty likeable, and the magical aspect is well-balanced between being explained and left as a mystery or up to the reader's imagination. I do wish that some of the feelings and motivations of characters were more explicitly stated in some scenes, as some I thought were left a bit too much up to interpretation.

Overall, this was a fun read that had my attention and made me want more, without an obsessive pull like some stories have. I'll definitely be reading the next in this series, and will likely read this one at least one more time. ( )

A good book by an interesting author with a unique viewpoint, I especially liked the diverse cast of characters. It was a bit hard to follow through the twist and turns of time travel but it does have a good ending. I also loved the notes afterward that explained how much of this book was rooted in myth and history. I'm also glad it's not a trilogy so I can finally wrap up a series! ( )

I listened to the audiobook. Don't read this if you think I'm near normal.
Do you ever read a book in which one minor detail distracts you from enjoying the story?
I greatly enjoyed the story. BUT WHY???
Bee, I think her name is. The lesbian character. WHY!!! It doesn't make sense. One sentence or phrase, everything else left the same and it would make sense, be accurate, be less wrong, have a cooler backstory.
But NO. The author just went with what made the book a typical, comtemporary, YA, fantasy.
Seriously just say 'Bee' had run away from her polygamous husband after 'Ido' died (in childbirth)

Time travel. Pirating. Little hint of romance. Kash is amazing. Diversity is big. Nix is meh but not as annoying as she could be - i understand why she makes a lot of her choices. Her thing with Blake made sense up until the first kiss then it become a ham handed metaphor. I really hope the next book doesn’t bring in a love triangle. Also slade is the worst dad. It’s borderline abusive how neglectful he is of nix in his quest for his former love. ( )

I really liked this one! I remember first seeing the cover and thinking--ooh, I need that one.

Nixie and her father can travel the world, in all of time, as long as they have a map. Slate, her father, is a Navigator. He is able to skip from one edge of a map to another. But they can only use each map once. He's been trying to get back to Hawaii, to Nixie's mother (before her death,) unsuccessfully for years. Always in search of map that will work, they travel to places real and imagined, collecting more maps, creatures, mythological items, and a few people along the way. In the back of Nixie's mind is worry--what if he finds her mother? Will she still be alive? Or will she disappear?

The adventure and relationships between the characters drew me in and kept me interested in this book. It is a series starter, but with NO cliffhanger ending. I'll be sure to read the next one. ( )
