This is one of those books that I really wanted to love. The concept behind it – over 5 years or so before facebook was launched (FWIW, I vaguely remember having an account in college, when it was just students and only a limited number of colleges) – what if you could have access to your facebook account and see your future? That is what happens to Emma and Josh when she gets a free copy of AOL online (wow, those were the days) to install on her computer. Intriguing right?
Unfortunately, Emma has to be one of the shallowest characters I have read about in a while. It was like she had no concept that her actions could seriously screw stuff up down the road. However, I did like Josh – he provided a needed sensible balance to Emma’s idiocy. The supporting cast of their high school friends, crushes and family members provided an interesting mix and perspectives.
