"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 TimesBook 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.
