Teen Pick of the Week: The Future of Us

The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long--up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh's family gets an American Online CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign-on, they're automatically logged onto Facebook...but Facebook hasn't been invented yet! Josh and Emma are looking into their profiles fifteen years in the future. Their sponses, careers, homes, and status updates--it's all there. But it's not what they expected. And every time they refresh their pages, their futures change. As they grapple with the ups and downs of what their lives hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right--and wrong--in the present.
