This was a very clever concept for a YA book, and it was delivered--at least in the well-done audio version I listened to--in a pretty charming package. I think it's a good sign about the book that I started out listening to it just in the car cd player going back and forth to work and doing errands, but then transferred it over to my iPod because I wanted to keep listening and had nowhere else to drive. I did want to slap the lead female character, Emma, a couple of times just for being stupid and self-absorbed and generally teenage girl-y, but her behavior and thoughts seemed about right for her age, and all was redeemed in the end.

What would you do if you knew where you'd be in 15 years? That's what happens to Emma and Josh one day in 1996 when Emma installs America Online onto her new computer and finds a link to a strange website called Facebook. The teenagers are baffled by this place where people reveal their most mundane and intimate details of their lives, but even more shocked that they can see what looks to be their own lives 15 years down the road. As they attempt to grasp what they are seeing, they also learn how the small and big decisions they make in everyday life has major impacts on their future. Will they be able to control their future without damaging their present? Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler write alternating perspectives chronicling the life-altering events of one week in the life of two teens.

I must confess that I liked this book in a large part due to that I was the same age as Emma and Josh during this novel. I could totally relate to all the quirks of everyday life in the mid-90s. It's crazy to think how much life as changed due to the Internet, and it was funny to see which aspects of life on which the authors focused. Sometimes Emma's character got on my nerves--she was rather cruel in certain parts of the book--and personally I would have liked to see weirder characters since I hung out with the oddballs in school, but all in all, the authors wrote really good voices for each teen. Some of the events in the book were predictable, but the ending wasn't exactly what I expected, which was handled rather well. This is a thought-provoking and inspiring read. I dare any reader to read this and not wonder about what one would do if put into this situation.

*Nit-pick note: "Crash Into Me" wasn't released until the end of 1996. I'm not a Dave Matthews fan, but I did stay relatively up-to-date to current music and watched MTV somewhat frequently during my freshman year of high school (1996-1997), and I remember this didn't become really big until the next year. Just sayin'. ( )

I think this was a cute book. I feel it could’ve been done much better in a lot of different ways but given that it is a youth book, I think it was done well. I could see quite a few writers taking this book’s idea and turning it into some amazing work as the subject is quite fascinating, in my opinion. ( )

This was a quick, fun read about a pair of teenagers who are able to access their future Facebook accounts. Emma and her former best friend Josh have just installed AOL on her computer when a strange website appears on her Internet screen. They laugh it off as a prank of some sort, but Emma becomes curious when she notices someone with her name and birthdate listed on the website. Eventually they determine that this "Facebook" is some sort of futuristic directory listing information about themselves -- fifteen years in the future!

The idea of being able to access today's Facebook while a teenager fifteen years ago is mind-boggling -- seeing the pictures, the notes, the blogs, who your "friends" are, what your relationships are like, and so on. This novel could definitely have been developed into something far more complex and insightful, but as it stands, it is an easy, fluffy read. ( )

Flat characters with little spark or verve, who are as inane as the third major character in the book - Facebook. The book is sprinkled with lots of references to 90s music and movies, which feels forced and unnatural instead of setting a scene.

The characters are so featureless that I couldn't tell who was speaking without checking the name at the beginning of each chapter. How that's possible when they were actually written by two different authors, I don't know. ( )
