Happy Friday, everyone!
Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE by Heidi Heilig, releasing February 16, 2016 from Greenwillow/HarperCollins. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Heidi:
Ahoy YABC! Welcome to the cover reveal for THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE!
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, but words deserted me when I saw this cover. I made sounds though--sounds like OH and EEEEEE and HHHNNNGGGGHHHHH. I realized too late that should have set up a polished shield, like Perseus, so I could safely view its reflected beauty. Thankfully, I’ve since regained most of my abilities to speak coherently, as long as I don’t gaze directly at it for too long. Ray Shappell, Sylvie Lefloche, and the whole team at Greenwillow/HarperCollins worked very hard to create the perfect cover for this book, capturing the drama, the tension, and the precarious sense of a life in the balance. They started with 8 different versions, refining and narrowing down their choices until they hit on this one. Personally, I think they did an incredible job. I hope you agree!

THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE
by Heidi Heilig
Release date: February 16, 2016
About the Book
Heidi Heilig’s debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to nineteenth-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, 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.
In The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance.
