Summary (from Goodreads):

It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer.Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a time-traveller. She, her father and their crew of time refugees travel the world aboard The Temptation, a glorious pirate ship stuffed with treasures both typical and mythical. Old maps allow Nix and her father to navigate not just to distant lands, but distant times - although a map will only take you somewhere once. And Nix's father is only interested in one time, and one place: Honolulu 1868. A time before Nix was born, and her mother was alive. Something that puts Nix's existence rather dangerously in question...Nix has grown used to her father's obsession, but only because she's convinced it can't work. But then a map falls into her father's lap that changes everything. And when Nix refuses to help, her father threatens to maroon Kashmir, her only friend (and perhaps, only love) in a time where Nix will never be able to find him. And if Nix has learned one thing, it's that losing the person you love is a torment that no one can withstand. Nix must work out what she wants, who she is, and where she really belongs before time runs out on her forever.

Review: The Girl From Everywhere

The Girl From Everywhere is not your typical time travel book. This novel incorporates maps into the time travel theme and is set in the lush, historical Hawaii. Despite the fact that I loved most of the elements in this book, the pacing was too slow for me to fully enjoy the novel. Continue reading

This week’s book: How it ends

How it Ends Catherine LoTitle: How it Ends
Author: Catherine Lo
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: June 7, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

How it begins…

"You're in my English class, right?"
I almost checked behind me to make sure she wasn't talking to someone else.

How it unravels…

“You can be my best friend without being my only friend."
Her words were knives raked along my skin. I could hear the goodbye in every syllable.

How it Ends.

Why should I keep her secrets when she didn't keep mine? All it would take was one little click and a carefully worded message.

How it Ends is an honest, heart-wrenching tale of a friendship from first meeting to breakup. Told through alternating points of view, it is about two best friends’ tumultuous sophomore year of bullying, boys and backstabbing and what can happen when friends choose assumptions and fear over each other.

Thoughts

I love how this book is all about friendship! I feel like friendship books are more enjoyable than romances because they just seem more realistic. The fact that this book also touches on bullying intrigues me. I’m sure that this book will be very relatable and honest!
