YA Event: Ann Brashares

Friday, April 11, 7:00 p.m.

 

From Ann Brashares, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, comes a new novel, The Here and Now. 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. It's thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking - a must-read novel of the year.

This is the story of 17-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...
