Waiting on Wednesday (77)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Here and Now by Ann Brashares (4/8/14):

Description (from Goodreads):
Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.

Thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking, The Here and Now is a twenty-first-century take on an impossible romance. Ann Brashares’ first novel for teens since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world . . . if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.

Meet seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time—a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins.

Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she’s told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth. But everything changes when she falls for Ethan Jarves.
Why I’m Waiting:
First, Ann Brashares wrote another YA novel???? Yes please! I loved her other books, and I’m not sure if there is even an adult book this woman has written that I don’t own and love. She’s a writer who I hope never stops writing. Beyond that, this plot sounds ridiculous! Viruses, time travel, and love story? This sounds rather epic. And I cannot wait until April to get my hands on this!
What are you waiting on this week?
