It’s live!! Cover Reveal: The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig + Giveaway (US Only)



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!

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.

    I LOVE this cover. I first heard about the book last spring/summer when I saw the query on QueryShark. And I died. This books sounds so amazing. It sounds really original and fresh compared to a lot of YA fantasy out there that is really derivative. And the cover! Ugh. I love Nix’s eyes in the water, something I missed at first glance because I was swooning. The orange sails of the ship against the black background is such an amazing pop. I just can’t. I need this book.

    love this cover

  41. Devin Murphy says:

    I think the cover’s pretty cool; I do not like this trend of young adult novels HAVING to have a face on the cover because I think it’s just kind of weird. It would be ten times cooler without the obvious feelings of needing to meet with the usual YA standards but that’s the market I guess. I think the book itself sounds super cool and interesting and I hope I win it because I am confident that I’ll enjoy reading it.
