The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler

The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
Release date: November, 2011
Pages: 356
Source: Borrowed

My feelings: 

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 Josh did something that changed everything. Things have been weird between them ever since, but when Josh's family gets a free AOL CD 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 their Facebook pages. But Facebook hasn't been invented yet. And they're looking at themselves fifteen years in the future.
By refreshing their pages, they learn that making different decisions now will affect the outcome of their lives later. And as they grapple with the ups and downs of what their futures hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right—and wrong—in the present.

My Review:
Don't you just love it when you are at the library and you come across a book you always wanted to read, but never had. When I came across The Future of Us I couldn't be any happier.

Emma and Josh are both great characters. Emma is 'ambitious', but was at times very frustrating. She wants her future to be so perfect that she kind of became obsessed with it. I did understood Emmas character. When you're 16 and read facebook updates, which gives you just a small peep in someones life and it doesn't fit with your goals right then and there you for sure want to change it. Josh was a very caring character and he always wanted to do what was right. A great friend to have. 

The plot is great, very addicitve. When you start reading The Future of Us you just can't get enough and you want to read it in one sitting. I also love that it had short chapters! I'm a sucker for short chapters. 

If you're like me and did not read this book when it was published years ago, you should go to your library and borrow it! It's really good!
