Summary: It s 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have never 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.

Review Overview:

  • Alternating perspectives with fantastic characters
  • Culturally relevant but at the same time a blast into the past of the 90’s
  • I can’t wait to buy the finished copy and reread!

Full review to come soon!

Hah, a bit ironic but this book has a Facebook page! Another reason to pick this up: Warner Bros. has already secured the film rights for the book.
