Do YOU want to know your future?

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, 15 years in the future. Everybody wonders what their destiny will be; Josh and Emma are about to find out.

The Future of Us, written by #1 NYTimes national bestselling author  JAY ASHER (Thirteen Reasons Why) and Printz award-winning YA author CAROLYN MACKLER (The Earth, My Butt, and Other Round Things), is a fun, imaginative look into the future through the past.  

Ever since my younger daughter, Amelia, read Thirteen Reasons Why five years ago, we have wanted to host the talented Jay Asher -- and now's our chance and we are THRILLED!   Thirteen Reasons Why is the gripping, addictive international bestseller that has changed lives the world over. It's a modern classic which delves into the world of teen suicide, and the aftermath on friends.

This delightful family read aloud skillfully weaves empathy, compassion and family into a beautifully realized story – universal and timeless – I dare say a new classic, in the mold of Charlotte’s Web (without the talking animals). Ten-year old Louie is trying his best to save a mini-donkey, he named Winston, who was born prematurely and whose mother died giving birth. Louie’s track record is not so good at keeping animals in his care alive, but he has faith in Winslow and gives him everything he has – most especially his love. Louie is sure Winslow will survive, and uses his plight as connection to his older brother Gus’ absence serving in the army. Strong, fully developed characters come to life in Creech’s vividly, and deceptively short novel which will stay with you long after the satisfying last page. - Maureen
