Overview

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.
"This gripping story is set in a world unlike any other and inhabited by beautifully imagined characters that stay with you long after the last page. As always, Brashares expertly captures the wonder of love's enduring power." - Sara Shepard, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars
