Jay Asher, The Future of Us


If you could see your future, how would you change it? Jay Asher, author of the bestselling Young Adult novel Thirteen Reasons Why, explores that theme in his new novel with Carolyn Mackler, The Future of Us. The year is 1996, when less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet. When Emma and her best friend Josh log on to AOL, they discover themselves on Facebook...fifteen years in the future.

Jay and Maryanne explore the idea of changing your destiny (if there is such a thing) without a magic computer. Jay and Carolyn have created an intelligent, sympathetic story to give us clues how to know what’s the right thing to do, when we don’t know how our actions might affect those around us. Are you living your life like you’re going to meet your future self?
