  • The Future of Us
    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 an America Online CD-ROM.
    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

    This book sounds so interesting. I can not wait for it. I read Thirteen Reasons Why earlier this year and it was such a profound and inspiring must read book. There was an excerpt in there for this book and the excerpt made me want to read this book even more. I seriously can't wait till it comes out. I mean the premise is pure genius from the start. I am hoping it will meet my expectations when I read it. =]

    Until next time,

    Happy Reading

    11. I still have to read Thirteen Reasons Why. The future of Us is the second book Jay Asher has written. He became kind of paralyzed after his first big hit and hadn't written anything until Mackler asked him to co-author this new project. I definitely want to check it out. Great choice!
