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
What a cool young adult novel that is a great read for adults too. I read this after my 15 year old daughter devoured it in one sitting over Thanksgiving break. I figured if it engaged her so much, I wanted to read it too. The premise is two teenagers in 1996 who just got their first computer . . . complete with dial up AOL. But, somehow when they logon they see this new weird thing called FACEBOOK! They are able to see their future Facebook pages--are they happy or unhappy? Married, single, successful, etc. Soon, the two teens figure out that what they do in the present day 1996 affects them in the future. They can see how their actions affect the future postings on Facebook. What a cool premise. This is a fun read and would be great for parents of teens to read and discuss together.
