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
