The Future of Us

It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long--at least, up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh's family gets a free AOL CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so that Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign on, they're automatically logged onto Facebook ... but Facebook hasn't been invented yet. Josh and Emma are looking at themselves fifteen years in the future. Their spouses, careers, homes, and status updates--it's all there. And every time they refresh their pages, their futures change. As they grapple with the ups and downs of what their lives hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right--and wrong--in the present.

  • "Im Mai 1996 bekommt die 16-jährige Emma ihren ersten Computer geschenkt. Mithilfe ihres besten Freunds Josh loggt sie sich ein und gelangt zufällig auf ihre eigene Facebook-Seite - 15 Jahre später. Geschockt stellt sie fest, dass sie mit 31 Jahren arbeitslos und unglücklich verheiratet sein wird. Josh hingegen, bislang alles andere als ein Frauenheld (der erst kürzlich von Emma einen Korb bekommen hat), wird das hübscheste Mädchen der ganzen Schule heiraten und zudem seinen Traumjob ergattern. Emma ist jedoch nicht gewillt, sehenden Auges in ihr Unglück zu laufen. Um das Zusammentreffen mit dem Jungen zu verhindern, der sie später mal unglücklich machen wird, beginnt sie, bewusste Änderungen in der Gegenwart herbeizuführen. Doch der Versuch, in ihr Schicksal einzugreifen und dadurch ihr künftiges Facebook-Profil zu verändern, setzt eine fatale Kettenreaktion in Gang."
