Title: The Girl from Everywhere

Author: Heidi Heilig
Upcoming Release Date: February 16, 2016

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a time-traveller. She, her father and their crew of time refugees travel the world aboard The Temptation, a glorious pirate ship stuffed with treasures both typical and mythical. Old maps allow Nix and her father to navigate not just to distant lands, but distant times - although a map will only take you somewhere once. And Nix's father is only interested in one time, and one place: Honolulu 1868. A time before Nix was born, and her mother was alive. Something that puts Nix's existence rather dangerously in question...

Nix has grown used to her father's obsession, but only because she's convinced it can't work. But then a map falls into her father's lap that changes everything. And when Nix refuses to help, her father threatens to maroon Kashmir, her only friend (and perhaps, only love) in a time where Nix will never be able to find him. And if Nix has learned one thing, it's that losing the person you love is a torment that no one can withstand. Nix must work out what she wants, who she is, and where she really belongs before time runs out on her forever. 


Why?: This cover is wonderful. Time travel and pirates seem to, oddly enough, be a trend this year in YA. I am all about it! I am very much into time travel stories, but they have to deal with paradoxes is ways that make sense. 

Expectations:   I'm expecting a fun adventure in time that takes place on a pirate ship!

Judging a book by its cover: This cover is beautiful. I love how simple it it. The waves. The boat. The eyes.
