The premise is not new but the execution is quirky and appealing- two teens in the mid-90's inadvertently link to this online entity called "Facebook" and find their futures. This is all about the plot, and the characters' develop only moderately, but I'm old enough to really appreciate the satirical asides regarding social media. Today's teens will be stretched to comprehend a time that in many ways seems current yet lacks the instantaneous connectedness of this decade.
Lots of options for pairing with other time-shifting, butterfly-effect titles.
