Staff Review:

Imagine you're a highschooler back in 1996, and you've just gotten a PC and are one of the first kids you know to sign on to AOL. Then imagine that instead of AOL, you log on one day and see a weird site called Facebook - and you can see what your future looks like in 15 years! That's what happens to Emma and her neighbor Josh... and when they realize that their actions now can change every detail about their futures, they struggle with how much they want to - or should - try and design a future for themselves as adults that reflect what they want now, as teens.
