Coming This Fall: A Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler Collaboration!

Ever since I finished Jay Asher's debut novel Th1rt3en Reasons Why in November of 2007, I have been stalking* him in an attempt to find out any information possible about any upcoming projects.  Today that wait is FINALLY over!  It has been announced that Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler (author of the Printz Honor book, The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things fame) have co-written a novel, The Future of Us, which is set to release under Penguin's Razorbill imprint this fall.

Jay and Carolyn both created cute videos to promote the upcoming title.  Here's Jay's video. Here's Carolyn's.  Set in a world before high-speed internet, The Future of Us is the story of Emma and Josh, who log onto a free trial CD-ROM of AOL and "discover themselves on Facebook...fifteen years in the future." Hmm...Dial-up internet? Time travel? Sounds oddly intriguing.  And since these are two authors whose past work I have enjoyed, I'm excited to see how it turns out.

ARCs at BEA? ALA? I hope so!
