waiting on wednesday: the girl from everywhere

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine!

This week's pick: The Girl From Everywhere
by Heidi Heilig

release date: February 16

blurb: It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer.

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.


I just recently finished Alexandra Bracken's fabulous time-travel novel, Passenger, and so I have been itching for another YA time travel romp to read! I've seen tons of hype for this one, so I'm really hoping that it lives up to the expectations. I can't wait to see where this book takes us in time! 

what are you waiting on?
