Waiting on Wednesday: The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Future of Us 
By: Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Publication Date: November 21, 2011

Goodreads Summary: 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.

How cool does that sound?! Such an awesome concept, and I can't wait to read this book :)

  8. Sounds interesting! I like dual perspectives too. It leaves me more satisfied knowing what is in each character's head instead of just one POV.
