Publisher's Summary

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 17-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was 12. 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 number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The Here and Now is thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking - and a must-listen novel of the year.

Dangling ending

Any additional comments?

Ann Brashares has a knack for weaving an enthralling story, only to have the ending left dangling for the reader, and The Here and Now is no exception. There are too many questions left unanswered at the end of the book, but otherwise, an enjoyable read. I'm giving it 5 stars, because sometimes I think unanswered questions are a good thing, my own feelings of frustration not withstanding.

Captivating

Great character driven story. Interesting plot- not very dramatic but comfortably paced. Emily Rankin did a great job performing and narrating it. Good pacing. Time well spent.
