The Here and Now - Ann Brashares

I finished this in a little more than a day. It was mediocre, at best. I was irritated with Ethan's constantly wanting to get into Prenna's pants, I was irritated by their relationship, I was irritated with the nonsense of the time traveling, I was especially irritated by the "don't do anything to disrupt time's natural flow" rule because nobody realized that they're simply being in the records of the time period and making friends and having jobs completely disrupted the natural flow... It wasn't one-star bad, but it was pretty lame in all areas. Kind of makes me glad I never bothered with reading The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
