THE HERE AND NOW
Genre: Young Adult, Futuristic
In her first book for young adults since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, Brashares has imagined an awful future that’s plausible enough to be terrifying. Brashares’ era-hopping race against time is fast paced and heady, with each chapter leading seamlessly to the next. This is a single-sitting read, perfect for fans of Brashares’ earlier work, as well as Veronica Roth’s Divergent.
Prenna doesn’t really belong in the small Westchester town she’s landed in. She’s a refugee from a plague-torn future; most of her life has been a battle against disease, starvation and ruin. Prenna and her mother are two of the lucky ones — they’ve managed to travel back in time with a small contingent of survivors, hoping to change the course of history. To keep the life they’ve fought for, there’s one thing Prenna must never do: fall in love. (DELACORTE, Apr., 256 pp., $18.99, ISBN: 9780385736800, HC, 12 & Up)
