In The Future of Us Carolyn Mackler, author of the Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things, among other fun YA novels and Jay Asher, author of the still popular Thirteen Reasons Why have created a new romantic twist.

As such, it’s a good summer read. So, snatch up your copy now and be ready for the summer…or read it now and read it again during the summer.
