The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
Jay Asher is the author of the hugely popular Thirteen Reasons Why (which I loved!) and Carolyn Mackler is the author of the very funny The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things. So of course I had very high expectations for The Future of Us and was not disappointed.
Here's the setup:
If there was a device or program that would give you a glimpse of what your life would be like 15 years from now, would you try it out?
Would you really like to know how life has turned out for you and the people you know?
When you find out that your life in 15 years is nothing like you thought it would be, would you try and change it in the present time?
