"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are barely able to restrain our ethusiasm for.
My pick this week (and my very first one ever) is The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler due out 11/21/11 by Razorbill.
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.
Ever since I read Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why a few years ago I have been waiting with bated breath for his next book release and it's finally here--well, it will be in a few months. A recent article in Entertainment Weekly gives a very good explanation of the length of time between publications.
