The Here And Now by Ann Brashares
I found this book to be a compelling read. It is a young adult dystopian novel set in the present day. Seventeen year old Prenna along with a group of people have escaped the future in which global warming has lead to an increase in the mosquito population which has spread a mutated virus causing a blood plague. Her group tries to minimize contact with people who are part of the regular time period for fear of creating more problems. When she becomes friends with a boy named Ethan, and an odd homeless man, she finds out how difficult that can be. There is romance and adventure in this book. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
