No, this is not a review, just an excited post. I get emails from Books-A-Million about new books that will be coming out soon. Well, this one for some reason has really caught my eye. I absolutely cannot wait for it to come out. I am going to read it with my children and then I will let you know what I think about it. It looks really good and it is the beginning of a new series for middle-graders. I am always looking for those. I’ll have to tell you about another series that I happened upon too. We read that one too and it was GREAT! I hope this new one that is coming soon will be too.
If you want to check out availability and other info here is the link on BAM http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Map-Everywhere/Carrie-Ryan/9780316240772?&ad=AD102314#overview .
Here is the Overview of it:
“Anything you need–The Map to Everywhere can take you there.”
To Master Thief Fin, an orphan from the murky pirate world of the Khaznot Quay, the Map is the key to finding his mother. To suburban schoolgirl Marrill, it’s her only way home after getting stranded on the Pirate Stream, the magical waterway which connects every world in creation (Apparently she “shouldn’t “have climbed aboard the mysterious pirate ship that sailed out of nowhere and into a dry Arizona parking lot. How was she to know?).
With the help of a bumbling wizard and his crew, they must scour the many worlds of the Pirate Stream to gather the pieces of the Map to Everywhere, but they aren’t the only ones looking. A dark and sinister figure is hot on their tail, and if they can’t beat his ghostly ship to find the Map, it could mean the destruction of everything they hold dear-not least of all themselves
In Carrie Ryan and John Parke Davis’ first installment of a fantastical new series, adventure, magic, and hilarity collide in the treacherous skies and dangerous waters of the Pirate Stream. Heart-pounding escapades and a colorful cast of characters will have readers setting sail through this wholly original and unforgettable tale.
I’m so excited!
