Kids say (3 ):

Thanks to its unusual setting, Hawaii in the 1860s, and its mix of the mythical and the historic, this romantic adventure succeeds in spinning a complicated tale of time travel and family conflict. THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE features a compelling main character eager to set off on adventure, yet bound by the obligations she feels to her family and fellow crewmates. Nixie's relationship with the charming young thief Kashmir is particularly well-handled, as are her mixed feelings for her dangerously obsessed father. Author Heidi Heilig keeps the narrative pace brisk, the stakes high, and the repartee witty.
