Books On Our Radar: The Ship Beyond Time (The Girl from Everywhere #2) by Heidi Heilig
Since Monday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day, (yaarrr, it’s real), I got into a conversation about what YA books would you choose to celebrate on said holiday, and someone mentioned The Girl from Everywhere, and I had to hang my head in shame, as I haven’t read it yet! My bookish friend lambasted me, then told me, The Ship Beyond Time, book 2 is coming soon, March 28th, 2017, to be exact. Of course, since I haven’t read it yet, I can’t say if there are pirates, but there is a SHIP, MAPS, and time-travel! So it sounds like a winner…and it sounds like I need to get this one read before The Ship Beyond Time releases!

The breathtaking sequel to the acclaimed The Girl from Everywhere. Nix has escaped her past, but when the person she loves most is at risk, even the daughter of a time traveler may not be able to outrun her fate—no matter where she goes. Fans of Rae Carson, Alexandra Bracken, and Outlander will fall hard for Heidi Heilig’s sweeping fantasy.
Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother—and possibly erase Nix’s existence—and Nix’s future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father?
Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems—not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices. Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. But at the center of this adventure are the extraordinary, multifaceted, and multicultural characters that leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. The sequel—and conclusion—to the indie darling The Girl from Everywhere will be devoured by fans of Rachel Hartman and Maggie Stiefvater. Includes black-and-white maps.
