It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long - at least, up until last November, when Josh did something that changed everything. Things have been weird between them ever since, but when Josh's family gets a free AOL CD in the mail,his mom makes him bring it over so that Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign on, they're automatically logged onto their Facebook pages. But Facebook hasn't been invented yet. And they're looking at themselves fifteen years in the future.
By refreshing their pages, they learn that making different decisions now will affect the outcome of their lives later. And as they grapple with the ups and downs of what their futures hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right - and wrong - in the present

"It was love because it was worth it."Fun, engaging and unique.
Woaw, this book totally had me reminiscing and wishing I was back at 90's. I'm guessing some of you are teenagers so you never really witnessed the 90's era. For me it was the best decade ever. And reading this book was like going back in time when I was in highschool and also the music*squeals*, I could totally relate. These two authors pulled a two different characters together neatly. So yes, I'd say I loved this book and I loved Josh ;).
The plot was simple yet unique and very intriguing, I'm sure you'd be intrigued too once you see a site that shows your future you, right? I was drawn to the story of these two teenagers who used to be bestfriends until Josh wanted more than that, but Emma didn't want to lose Josh so she wanted to stay the way they were before. But who is she kidding? Nothing will ever be the same. again But a very weird incident happened and Emma will do anything just to get rid of her unfortunate self in that awful future of her. Unlike Emma, Josh's future was just great, beautiful wife and children plus a successful career. So basically Josh should be okay with everything, but after a while he learned he isn't happy at all, and as for Emma, will she ever learn to love? In the end, they will find out, that the only thing that could make them happy is just right in front of their eyes.. or will they?
I've felt so many emotions while reading this book, I felt jealous, angry, happy, I was frustrated that why cant they see, its them that was meant for each other? The story was also predictable, but fun and entertaining, its a kind of story that you'd continue reading because you still want to witness and experience every moment of it. Loved the ending too, I thought it was just perfect. Would totally read these two authors books/work again.
History's a bitch when you're in the middle of it.
You need to figure out what you want, Josh. If that means you need to swim against the tide to get it, at least youre aiming for something that could make you very happy.
