The Future of Us


Sofia Dell'Anno


Have you ever wanted to know what your future held? For two friends, Emma and Josh, they get just that. The year is 1996, and less than half of all high school students have ever used the internet. Emma gets her first computer and an American Online CD-ROM. While setting up her new computer, Emma receives a message with a link to Facebook, a website that does not exist yet. They discover they are logged onto profiles that show them their own lives fifteen years in the future. The only catch is that every time they refresh the page, their future changes. This forces Emma and Josh to figure out what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong in the present.
