"Waiting on" Wednesday [10]

The Hear and Now by Ann Brashares

Publication Date: April 8, 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Press
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. 

I'm a huge fan of time travel stories and I'm excited to see what Ann Brashares, author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, has come up with in her latest book. It looks like it's going to be a good mix of sci-fi thriller with some romance thrown in for good measure. I received a advanced galley from NetGalley and I'm very excited to read this book in the next couple of days.  I'll be sure to post a review once I finish reading it!

Check it out on Goodreads
