The Here and Now
by Anne Brashares
Prenna and her doctor mom are not your average immigrants: they have immigrated to New York from the 2090s, a future of climate-change extremes and mosquito-borne plagues that wipe out entire families and civilizations.
The few who have survived the plagues and the journey back to 2010 have been charged with two challenges: change the course of environmental history and assimilate into the culture without disclosing their origins or becoming intimate with the natives.
When an elderly homeless man warns Prenna that she and Ethan must prevent a murder on May 17, 2014 just days away, Prenna realizes she must defy the community and its counselors for civilization's greater good.
