The Here and Now; Ann Brashares

The Here and NowThe Here and Now by Ann Brashares
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reading this reminded me of a reverse Running Out of Time only with visitors from the future trying to keep their existence secret from the 'natives'. Once you're comfortable with the idea of time travel and how one might influence (corrupt?) the timeline, the premise of the book works. What works less well is the love story or the ending with Prenna's power move against the leaders. For me, anyway, it read as though there was a need for a strong ending but rather than go for something different the author chose to go the predictable route.
