The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler – ” What if you could see how your life would unfold–just by clicking a button? 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.”
CRBLC Movie of the Week:
