Now That You’re Here (Duplexity, Part 1)

NowThatYoureHere_AmyKNichols_sm D anny and Eevee are meant to be together . . .

Just not in this universe.

Eevee Solomon has high school down to a science. Get the grades. Get the recommendations. Get into an Ivy League college, and eventually land a killer job at NASA.

Then Danny Ogden enters the equation.

Danny is a street-smart graffiti artist. He’s always managed to stay out of serious trouble, but this time he’s out of luck. One minute he’s running from the cops, and the next, he jolts awake in an unfamiliar body–his own, but different. Somehow, he’s crossed into a parallel universe. Now his friends are his enemies, his parents are long dead, and coolheaded Eevee is not the brazen girl he once kissed back home. Then
again, this Eevee may be his only hope of getting home.

Eevee tells herself she’s only helping him in the name of quantum physics, but there’s something undeniably fascinating about this boy from another dimension . . . a boy who makes her question who she is, and who she might be in another place and time.




“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.”

“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.”

★ Starred review. Read the rest here.

“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.”
“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.”

“A mysterious, sometimes tense, yet sweet story about young love and science gone awry.”
“Watching [Danny and Eevee] fall in love is a treat.”

“Add Now That You’re Here to your running list of books to read if you love Orphan Black or Fringe. Nichols’ part-science fiction, part-romance, and it’s heavy on the science in a good way. It embeds science fact in with the fiction to make the whole story feel real and exciting.”
