"The Future of Us" by Jay Asher

The Future of UsI read this book simply because Jay Asher's "Thirteen Reasons Why" is one of my favourite books. Like that book this one grabs the reader from the first page and keeps the reader captivated with it's quick pace, interesting characters and very unique plot line.

It's 1996 and Emma has just gotten her first computer. Her best friend Josh has given her an America Online CD-ROM. When they log on they discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future. The alternating narration from the two main characters, Josh and Emma spins an intriguing point of view to the unfolding story giving us a firsthand look at the wonderful character development throughout the story.

The best part of this book was seeing how the future changed because of something that Emma or Josh did in the present. I only wish that we could have seen even a little more of the consequences of their present day actions.

Overall, this was a lighthearted fun read. I definetely recommend this book.

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it (my current rating) it was amazing
