The Map to Everywhere is a fun, fast-paced fantasy adventure that drops the reader and suburban schoolgirl Marrill into the crazy, fantastic Pirate Stream, a river of magic that flows between worlds. Along with her un-rememberable new-found friend Fin, Marrill and the reader are swept off on an adventure to save the Pirate Stream and all the worlds connected to it from a Mad Oracle who would destroy it all.

This is a very good book. It is full of imagination, adventure, friendship and the discovery of self worth. There are pirates, wizards and thieves as well as talking trees in this book that learn to work together to prevent a wizard who turned bad, from destroying the world.

This book is amazing! Most of it is complete imagination which is why I think I feel in love with it so much! I love the character Fin. How he is forgotten so easily. It would be hard but its not like super strength or any powers like that... he has the power to be forgotten which is just as much a blessing and a curse. He isn't overpowered by his power he is brought down by it. I love the creativity that went into this book making you imagine the worlds and the different places and things. You should read it this book is Amazing!!!
THE END OF THE BOOK IS SO EXCITING!!!!! I WAS CONFUSED WHEN THE ORACLE WAS LIKE I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO SAVE ME... DOES THAT MEANS? THAT HE MEANT TO LOSE??? I wonder.....
Any way you should read it!

A fun and imaginative adventure, with enough weight and depth to never feel fluffy.

From one of the many worlds openly touched by the Pirate Stream there is Fin, blessed and cursed to be instantly forgotten by everyone the moment they stop interacting with him--great for a career as a master thief; not so great for companionship and loneliness. He thrives at survival in the rough, gritty city known as Khaznot Quay, but has never had a friend and lives very much alone.

From our much less magical world that is almost never touched by the Pirate Stream (magic doesn't follow rules, and my world does) there is Marrill, whose nomadic archaeologist parents have just told her they are buying their first house ever because her mom has become too sick to travel. She goes from feeling stuck in Phoenix to stuck on a pirate ship that appeared out of nowhere then disappeared back into it with her aboard.

That ship is where the two discover that their only hope of being reunited with their mothers is helping an odd wizard and ship captain complete their quest to find the scattered pieces of a magical map. It's a quest that takes them to all sorts of strange, silly, dangerous places.

It's a quest of constant momentum that never feels hectic, one that takes readers through amazement and amusement in equal measure, with just the right amount of tension and wonder.
