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.
 


My Thoughts

The Girl From Everywhere was a fresh read. It was my first time reading about time travel and pirate ships and I actually liked it. The story is captivating, I enjoyed reading the myths and fairy tales in the story. The settings are well-built and magical. I loved the diversity in this book.
                                     
Nix is a likeable character. She has a complicated realitionship to her father, and I understand her frustrations to him. Kashmir,a clever man, I love him. Do you know how much I shipped Nix and Kashmir while reading this book? I think they are made for each other, they will make a perfect couple (!!!). This book is mostly made of family  relationship, friendship, myths and legends, and a little bit of romance.


Overall, I’m really glad that I requested an e-arc of this. Thank you Edelweiss for the copy! I can’t wait for the second book, more Nix and Kashmir moments please. J
5 hearts! fave
