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.
(GoodReads)

This is such an awesome idea for a book. I remember the days when my friends and I would go on AOL, when (to us) the internet was this new, awesome, mysterious thing. Being able to easily connect with people from all over the world was such a great concept. Then when Facebook came around, it brought whole new possibilities concerning social networking. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
