A new student review of The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

kaiyle posted a new student review of The Here and Now by Ann Brashares. See the full review.

I had pretty high expectations for this book since it was written by Ann Brashares (the author of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants) and unfortunately this book fell short of those expectations.  The beginning was pretty confusing because you don’t know all of the details about the time travelling and the main character talks about a bunch of stuff that doesn’t really make sense.  I also thought the story was going to have more romance in it.  It’s weird because the boy that Prenna falls for has really deep feelings for her already and then all of a sudden Prenna feels the same way, so there isn’t a lot of development of their feelings.  The book also talks a lot more about technology than I would have expected.  The book wasn’t necessarily bad, but I think it was too short (the book is only about 230 pages) to develop all the ideas that Brashares is trying to include.
