Publisher's Summary

Heidi Heilig's debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to 19th-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.

Great Story, Dismal Hawaiian Pronunciation

The story was simply wonderful and the performance was good, until the Hawaiian words were introduced. I was appalled by the lack of preparation by the reader for proper pronunciation of the language. Living in Hawaiʻi and working with the language daily made me more frustrated. I would have stopped listening if the story was poor. Please, take this review to performers and make sure they understand that they are performing. It only a story, but honoring a culture.

Good story, HORRIBLE reader.

Would you try another book from Heidi Heilig and/or Kim Mai Guest?

This reader should have consulted with the author or someone knowledgable of the Hawaiian language, because her enunciation sucked! Seriously, it was difficult to listen to.
