Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love. Thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking, The Here and Now is a twenty-first-century take on an impossible romance. Ann Brashares’ first novel for teens since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is 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. Meet 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 she falls for Ethan Jarves.

2.0 The Here and Now
The Here and Now has the makings of a good time travel/controlling cult/forbidden love story. But something must have gone wrong in the combining of these ingredients. In the positive category, we have:– A big ol’ wasteland of a future, justifying the trip back in time to save the people of the past...

2.0 The Here and Now (Review)
When this book was finally over, more than anything else, I was relieved. Relieved that I didn’t have to read it anymore, try to make sense of it anymore, try and care about the characters anymore. I was relieved it was just done and I wouldn’t have to think about it anymore. Maybe that’s one of the...

I received a copy through netgalley. The here and now is an interesting take on time travel and how it changes everything. It makes you think about how far you might go for to change the future for the ones you love. It was a good read bit I didn't find that it grabbed me as much as I had wished. Th...

2.0 The Here and Now
www.readingbifrost.comThe novel starts out fair enough. Ethan meets Prenna when she falls through time to escape her dystopian future along with several other “survivors”. But as the book moved on, it made less and less sense and the characters never got past the flatness that they first impressed.T...
