2015 год. Boston, 1891. 13-year-old Sophia Tims lives with her uncle, cartologist Shadrack Elli, in a world torn to pieces by the Great Disruption of 1799--when all of the continents were mysteriously thrown into different time periods, from the prehistoric era to the fortieth century. Sophia's parents are explorers. She has not seen them in eight years, when they went on a last-minute trip and never returned. When Shadrack is kidnapped from their home, Sophia sets out--along with her new friend, Theo, a refugee from the West--in order to find him. Their journey takes them across the country, over the sea, and through remarkable cities. Along with a group of law-abiding pirates, and a wayward botanist and his daughter, they search for Sophia's uncle, and run for their lives. What they learn--about mapmaking, the changes taking place in the world, and the legends of the land--transforms Sophia forever. This remarkable debut, the first of S.E. Grove's Mapmakers trilogy, is a true original.
