Description

Josh and Emma are about to discover themselves--fifteen years in the future

It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long--at least, up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh's family gets a free AOL CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so that 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 at themselves fifteen years in the future.

Their spouses, careers, homes, and status updates--it's all there. 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2011 – With collaborators like these, readers expect an ingenious hook, compelling characters, and thought-provoking content, and these two top-of-their-game authors don t disappoint. It s 1996, and high school junior Emma and her neighbor Josh are BFFs until an awkward, romantic moment creates tension. Then Emma gets a new computer and an AOL CD-ROM, which somehow allow her to access her future Facebook page when she goes online. She and Josh are able to read about what their lives will be like in 15 years, but what s more, they discover that they can affect those future lives by their thoughts and actions in the present, a sobering realization with far-reaching consequences for the teenagers. Asher and Mackler s concept is fascinating how closely today is tied to tomorrow and the alternating voices of the two main characters keep each chapter fresh and provide distinct perspectives on the events of the story. Though readers will not necessarily be surprised by how things turn out, the enjoyment and the underlying message is in simply allowing the journey to unfold. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely Amazing!

I got this book and I wasn't able to put it down the entire time! I read through it in one night. What happens to Emma and Josh will have you turning the pages until you get to the end. I thought it was a great book and it really makes you think, 'what would I do if this was me?'. I suggest you get it! :D

Great book!

So far, this book has been amazing! It's got a great, original story that pulls you in from the start. Don't hesitate to buy this!

A Disappointed Reccomendation

I read this book with high expectations...I was very disappointed. The way the authors cut you out of Facebook right in the middle of the action wasnt the smartest idea and Emma was a jerk. I reccomend this book-the plot is amazing and everything seems perfect until the end- but it will disappoint.
