It’s 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.

Emma just got her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM.

Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on–and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future.

Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.

    I’m an alt rock girl, so I can’t get enough of 90s-era Bush, and of course any of the classics by Nirvana. “Wonderwall” by Oasis is still one of my favorites.

    I also tend to get nostalgic over pretty much anything I heard on MTV’s “TRL” during my high school days.

  2. I was a TOTAL alternative freak. Loved Bush, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Beck, The Cure, Duran Duran (when they had their first comeback), Garbage, Live, Radiohead, The Verve, 10,000 Maniacs … Okay I’ll stop! 🙂
