The Future of Us by Jay Asher, Carolyn Mackler

It's 1996 and very few high school students have ever used the internet. Facebook will not be invented until several years in the future. Emma has just got a computer and an America Online CD. She and her best friend Josh power it up and log on - and discover themselves on Facebook in 2011. Everybody wonders what they'll be like fifteen years in the future. Josh and Emma are about to find out.


'A clever, high concept novel…it's a funny, romantic page-turner.' - The Bookseller

'Ingenious hook, compelling characters, and thought-provoking content...' - Publishers Weekly, starred review

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
