A+! Character driven, clever, and other worldy. A world exists here that is so foreign to our own, but very close to our hearts' inner landscapes. It is ours and largely speaks of the trouble and times we are currently experiencing: bullies, self-doubt, destruction of the earth, and ruthless leaders. The biggest issue I had with the Now was wanting more, NOW! I can't wait to read the next installments in the series and have all my unanswered questions answered. What will happen next is plaguing me because Jack, Tija'l, and the Now have truly become a part of my daily thoughts and a part of my life.
