An unforgettable epic romantic thriller about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world . . . if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.
Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.
This is the story of seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time—a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins.
Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she’s told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth.
But everything changes when Prenna falls for Ethan Jarves.
From Ann Brashares, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The Here and Now is thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking–and a must-read novel of the year.
I’m currently about halfway into this book and I’ll go ahead and say that this is a MUST-READ when it releases on April 8! I read the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books back in junior high and I’m now 25. I was quite interested when I saw that Brashares had written a book that includes time travel! I actually put it off for awhile and let the book sit on my kindle until my mama mentioned to me that she’d been reading it too. (we’re both netgalley addicts…) The Here and Now is unlike anything Brashares has released before and has written an interesting concept that can be enjoyed by teens or adults. Pick this one up when it releases in April!
