THEN: The formation of the UNA, the high threat of eco-terrorism, the mammoth rates of unemployment and subsequent escape into a world of virtual reality are things any student can read about in their twenty-first century textbooks and part of the normal, background noise to Freya Kallas' life. Until that world starts to crumble.

NOW: It's 1985. Freya Kallas has just moved across the world and into a new life. On the outside, she fits in at her new high school, but Freya feels nothing but removed. Her mother blames it on the grief of her father's death, but how does that explain the headaches and why do her memories feel so foggy? When Freya lays eyes on Garren Lowe, she can't get him out of her head. She's sure that she knows him, despite his insistence that they've never met. As Freya follows her instincts and pushes towards hidden truths, the two of them unveil a strange and dangerous world where their days may be numbered. Unsure who to trust, Freya and Garren go on the run from powerful forces determined to tear them apart and keep them from discovering the truth about their shared pasts (and futures), her visions, and the time and place they really came from. Yesterday will appeal to fans of James Dashner's The Maze Runner , Veronica Roth's Divergent , Amy Ryan's Glow , Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone , and Ally Condie's Matched .

Yesterday is a mix of a SF dystopian and romance novel. The novel moves between 1985 and in the future. It's 1985 Freya and her family have moved back to Canada from New Zealand. Freya has had flu-like symptoms since the family moved back and she can’t seem to remember much about her life in New Zealand. She meets a boy at school, Garren, and she is certain that she somehow knows him. Garren does not remember Freya. Freya confronts Garren and they both realize that odd coincidences seem to tie them together. Lots of action, appealing characters, and the high-school setting will appeal to teens. Patrons who enjoyed the Hunger Games will enjoy this YA novel. KY
