From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The Here and Now is an epic star-crossed romance about a girl who might be able to save the world . . . if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.


"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

Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.
 
   The world Prenna James comes from is in ruins. She and the others who escaped are here to prevent humanity’s destruction. But if they don’t follow The Rules, everything that matters will be gone: Friends. Families. Dreams. Love.
   Ethan Jarves can never know Prenna’s secret. That she’s not from another place.
   She’s from another time.
 

“Fast-paced, gripping, and romantic.”—Publishers Weekly

“Lightning-paced . . . like a cinematic blockbuster.”—Kirkus Reviews  

“An exciting time-travel adventure complete with murderers to thwart and mysteries to solve.”—Booklist

 “Compelling.”—School Library Journal
 
“An 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
