Praise

“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.” – Sara Shepard, bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars

“[A]n appealing romantic thriller, ‘The Here and Now’ also serves as a potent reminder that we inherit the future we buy with our actions today.” –Cassandra Clare for The New York Times Book Review
 
“The Here and Now could just as easily sit among the time-travel sci-fi, coming-of-age, or romantic thrillers of YA. Honestly, even though I really don’t know how to categorize it, I loved it — and the ending made me hope (really, really hope!) for a sequel.”—Happily Ever After/USA Today

“From the author who brought us The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants come the gripping page-turner about a girl who’s willing to risk it all for love and the fate of the world.” –Teen Vogue 
 
“Lightning-paced . . . like a cinematic blockbuster.”—Kirkus Reviews  

“Compelling.”—School Library Journal

“Best known for her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, Brashares forays into science fiction in this fast-paced, gripping, and romantic novel about a girl from a future that seems eerily possible. . . her fans will be happy to find that her prose is as resonant and realistic as ever.” –Publishers Weekly
 
“Brashares . . . builds on her adroit adolescent characterization and ear for teen dialogue and transports them into an exciting time-travel adventure complete with murderers to thwart and mysteries to solve.”–Booklist 

“Skillfully weaving together time travel, planetary devastation, climate change, plague and young love, the author creates an engaging, adventurous tale.” –Shelf-Awareness

“Brashares’ era-hopping race against time is fast paced and heady…perfect for fans of Brasahres’ earlier work, as well as Veronica Roth’s Divergent.” –RT Book Reviews

“Fantasy and science fiction fans will enjoy the intricate cause-and-effect Brashares defines in her story. Filled with suspense and spiced with romance, the story will satisfy any reader who appreciates a well told story. [Brashares] is at the top of her game.” –Examiner.com

“A satisfying mix of science fiction and romance.” –Children’s Literature
