2 books, and 2 parallel worlds come together in 1 exciting bind-up, perfect for die-hard science geeks and Sarah Dessen fans alike.
“The perfect blend of sci-fi and swoons.” —Amie Kaufman, New York Times Bestselling author of Illuminae
Book 1: Now That You're Here. Danny is a street-smart graffiti artist who is jolted into a parallel world. Eevee is the unexpectedly alluring science geek he kissed once in his world and finds himself falling for in this one. Together, they must figure out what caused Danny's jump, before another jolt in the space-time continuum leaves them back at square one.
Book 2: While You Were Gone. In a city where censorship is everywhere and security is everything, Eevee is an artist with a bright future, until an accident destroys her prospects. Danny is given a fresh start when a glitch in the universe lifts him out of his own dead-end life and drops him in a parallel world. But his alternate self is tangled up with an anarchist group that could land him in deep trouble.
As Danny sifts through clues from his past and Eevee attempts to piece together her future, they uncover a secret that's bigger than both of them. . . . And together, they must correct the breach between the worlds before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly, October 2014, starred review: "Riveting.... Nichols infuses the story with a smattering of science fiction and science fact, while making a welcome departure from the stereotype of the book-smart outcast trying to fit in."Kirkus review, October 2014:"While the world-jumping is fantastical, the personalities and characters (fully individual, without reaching trying-too-hard levels of quirkiness) ring true.... A debut with great characters and huge nerd appeal."Booklist review, October 2014:"A mysterious, sometimes tense, yet sweet story about young love and science gone awry."VOYA review, December 2014:"Debut novelist Nichols has such an engaging writing style that readers will have little problem accepting the premise of parallel worlds....Think of the intrigue in Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, softened by the romance of a Sarah Dessen novel."School Library Journal review, November 2014"A mystery set against a sweet romance that will envelop teens. String theory enthusiasts, as well as fans of the television series Fringe or Ann Brashares’s The Here and Now will particularly enjoy this.""With the flips between universes, this book will keep you on your toes the whole way through." —Bustle.com"The perfect blend of sci-fi and swoons, Now That You're Here is like no other book I've read. Riveting, romantic and utterly original, it kept me up late!"  —Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of These Broken Stars"Dynamic, dizzying, and downright daring, Now That You're Here kept me guessing until the end, and ready for the next." —Shannon Messenger, author of Let the Sky FallFrom the Hardcover edition.
