The Future of Us - Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler

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.

While I liked this book, I wasn't taken by it. I found Emma to be bossy and had crazy double standards, Josh seemed a little too much like a doormat and not a realistic teenage boy. I have to say that the writing between Asher and Mackler was very good and seamless. If I didn't know they were two people, I would've thought it was one.

The ending of the novel was good in my opinion, it was open ended and I don't think it could've ended any other way without seeming too cheesy.

I've heard mixed things about this one, which is disappointing since I loved 13 Reasons Why
