Back to the Future is my favorite movie trilogy. I do tend to like things more related to time travel, even if I don't get all nerdy and know everything about it. I just like the idea of seeing the future and changing things now to effect it. I do believe in the moth effect (a moth flaps his wings in Arizona and produces a tidal wave in the south Pacific, stuff like that). This story takes place in the 90's (so like when I was in high school too) when the internet was first starting. A pair of kids accidentally get logged onto this website called "Facebook" and they can see the future. And while the guy of the pair likes his future a lot and doesn't want it to change, the girl does not like hers at all and uses the information she has and tries to change things now to effect her future. Very interesting (to me!) concept. Of course, there is a moral and whatever, but I love stuff like this, so I really enjoyed this book, even for a YA novel.
