Happy Release Day to Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler

There are so many books out there to choose from, but for some reason there are a few authors that you wait and wait for another book to devour.  For me, Jay Asher is the bee's knees!! This book was featured on a Waiting on Wednesday post back in September. I am so happy that I can finally say -- HAPPY RELEASE DAY to Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler!!!

  1. I've been seeing this book more & more around the blog world. It sounds like such a great/interesting read. I love how they see themselves on FB in the future-how crazy would that be?! :-)

  2. The plot itself was a little rushed at the end and weak in comparison to the nostalgia and social commentary. Also, after all of their antics in trying to change and shape their futures, I felt like at the end it would have been nice to have a page telling what really did happen to everyone in the future based on the actions they all took throughout the book.
