Waiting on Wednesday: The Future of Us

This is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that
spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Pre-order from the Book Depository
Authors: Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: 21 November 2011
Hardcover: 309 pages
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)
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.



Why? 


First of all, I loved Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why. I thought it was very well-constructed and well-written. Secondly, I'm a sucker for time travel. Any sort of time travel. Also, being someone who grew up during the time when the Internet became popular, I'm thinking that I will really connect with these characters. I already love the reference to the AOL CD in the summary. I remember getting those all the time! Seriously can't wait for this!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
