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.
Are you ready for a time traveling task to save the future? But can you really change the course of history that has already been dated and printed in future newspapers? Prenna is from the future. She lives amongst strict rules that bind her from being free of all the basic human rights. Especially, the hardest rule for a girl in high school- the ability to love. Somehow Ethan is catching on to her secret. She pulls away knowing it will only bring devastating pain to both of them. But love is strong, too strong to keep them apart and the future of the world depends on it.
This captivating novel captured me with every turn of the page as I constantly tried to predict what could possibly happen next. Best of all, you are left with a resolution that you know will open to another captivating novel.

Looking forward to see if the future holds a sequel!
