Book Shorts: The Future of Us

Future of Us

Title:  Future of Us

Author:  Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler

Summary:  It’s 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet. Emma just got her first computer and Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on – and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future. Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.

I started reading it because…the unique premise of teens accidentally discovering their future selves on Facebook in the mid-’90s intrigued me.

I kept reading because…I wanted to see if these kids would ever figure out they are meant for each other!

Main characters: If they were in a yearbook, they would be voted Most Likely To:  Grow Old Together.
