Waiting on Wednesday: The Future of Us

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Pub. Date: November 21, 2011



Goodreads says, "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."


*I love the premise of this book. I remember when I got my AOL CD and signed on for the first time. Dial up internet seems like ages ago! I love the whole idea of looking into the future, so I definitely can't wait for The Future of Us.

  2. I'm excited for this one too. I graduated high school in 1996 so it will be like a blast from the past a little bit. I haven't read anything by Jay Asher but I do like Carolyn Mackler. Fantastic pick!

  6. I love the premise of this one too and cannot wait to read it! I remember dial up and the noise it made and how it would take several minutes to boot up. Now if anything takes more than 15 seconds to load I give up and move on:)
