Waiting On Wednesday (48): The Future of Us

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday 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
To be Published:  November 21st 2011 by Razorbil
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.
I have had my eye on this book for a while.  I think the synopsis sounds intriguing and it has relatively good reviews on the advance copies.  I have never read anything by either author, but I am willing to give them a try! I remember well the first days of AOL dial up, so this should be an interesting flash back book for me. Lucky for us this book comes out in November, so the wait isn't too much longer.

What book are YOU waiting on?

I love 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher so I have a pretty good feeling that I'll fall in love with this book too. I've read some early reviews that just rave about it. Great pick!

Oh...this summary is much different than I thought it would be from the cover. I remember my first internet days as well which was actually around 1996 so this sounds like a really good nostalgic book for me too. I will have to add it.

Thanks for stopping by my WoW :)
