Genre: Drama, Realistic Fiction
It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long--up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh's family gets an American Online CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign on, they're automatically logged onto Facebook...but Facebook hwasn't been invented yet. Josh and Emma are looking at their profiles fifteen years in the future. Their spouses, careers, homes, and status updates--it's all there. But it's not what they expected. And every time they refresh their pages, their futures changed. As they grapple with the ups and downs of what their lives hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right--and wrong--in the present.
This was a really nice book and I enjoyed it but not as much as I could have. I did, however, finish this in one sitting.
I probably would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I had been able to relate to the characters more. I really thought that they were ridiculous.
At first, this book seemed a bit bland. But then I thought of what I would have done if I had been in Emma or Josh's shoes. I think understood them more and became more interested in the book.
Just like Emma, I would have panicked and changed every little thing to see if it would have made an impact. I probably would have spent hours sitting there and searching up people's names. But then I would have panicked about all of the changes that were happening and then decide to never make a Facebook account so that I wouldn't be able to see my future.
Anyways, this was a pretty nice book and you should check it out if you're interested.
Likes: Emma, Josh, and everyone really.
Dislikes: Emma was a bit rash and annoying sometimes.
