What if you could see how your life would unfold just be clicking a button?

It's 1996 and Facebook isn't even invented. Yet somehow, best friends Emma and Josh have discovered their profiles, fifteen years in the future ... and they're not sure they like what they see.

The more Emma and Josh learn about their future lives, the more obsessed they become on changing the destiny that awaits them. But what if focusing on the future, means that you miss something that's right in front of you?

From Jay Asher, the bestselling author of THIRTEEN REASONS WHY - Now a Netflix TV show - and Carolyn Mackey, comes a story of friendship, destiny, and finding love.

Favourite Quote: "I swear, guys in groups are capable of the stupidest things." "Like war." This book is perfect for a fun, light, summer read! I enjoyed it and give it a 3/5 stars! The whole idea of this book was just awesome! Seeing your future through facebook? Complete genius! This part of the plot was my favourite! I loved seeing how everyone changed based on a few decisions, the authors did really well writing it! However the other parts of the plot, like the different romances between the characters or their relationship with their parents didn't really appeal to me, maybe it was because I felt there were under-developed and that's why I never had a connection to them. That's a reason why I took one star off because some of the plot just bored me! As for the characters, they were okay. I started out really liking Emma then I started to dislike her towards the middle and then liked her again at the end. Complete rollercoaster relationship! Then there's Josh who I liked well enough. Their relationship was why I took the other star off, I never felt the connection between them and the ending felt to rushed and forced! The secondary characters that I really liked were the two other friends, there were hilarious! Overall I did enjoy this book and would recommend it to anyone needing a creative, quick, light read !!!!show more
