{Review} The Here and Now by Ann Bradshaw


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. 


{My Review}

I really enjoyed The Here and Now by Ann Bradshaw. My very favorite part was the romance between Prenna and Ethan. Prenna lives a cloistered life, and she’s suffocating inside and out. Her only relief comes from Ethan, who is everything a man should be. He’s kind and gentle and determined and thoughtful. 

I found myself rooting so hard for this couple, wanting them to find a way to be together, to be safe. Every character in this book is so dimensional and realistic, even the villain(s). I totally understood why they did the things they did. I even felt sorry for them as they did terrible things, which takes real talent to pull off. 

The Here and Now is sweet and powerful and lovely. I definitely recommend you pick it up.
