In 1996, when teenage Emma goes to install AOL on her computer she accidently stumbles across her thirty-something Facebook page. I have no idea how my teenage self would have reacted to my current Facebook status. But I do know that The Future of Us is cleaver and funny and a great read for both modern teens and those of us who remember life before Facebook.
If you want more details, here is what goodreads has to say about this great book.
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.
