'It is said the Bintheyr Map to Everywhere will take its possessor wherever he or she needs to go...'
Master thief, Fin, is unusual - when he's out of sight, everyone forgets he exists! He needs to find his mother - the one person who might remember him.
Schoolgirl, Marrill, boards a pirate ship in a car park and is carried off to another world. She needs to find her way home.
Fin and Marrill are on a wild adventure to find the Map to Everywhere, but can they escape the Oracle - a dark and powerful wizard who seeks the map to fulfil a terrifying prophecy?
The first in an epic new adventure series from husband-and-wife team, John Parke Davis and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author, Carrie Ryan. Beautifully illustrated by Todd Harris.
The friendship that develops between Marrill and Fin is so beautiful and filled me with the warm fuzzies. Fin is a boy that is used to being forgotten. As in, people cannot seem to remember him at all. This made his friendship with Marrill all the more special. She is the first person that can remember him every single day. His first true friend. The adventures that they go on together shows so much trust and displays such a solid friendship. It's probably one of my favourite bookish friendships from 2014.
Not only did I love the friendships, but I loved the whole premise of the book. I loved that the Oracle was a character that we love to hate and I can't wait to see what happens with him in the future books. I loved that the pirate ship just appeared in a car park and I loved searching for the Map to Everywhere with them. The Map to Everywhere is an exciting and original read that I recommend to people of all ages :) go grab yourself a copy!
