The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
“Josh and Emma are about to discover themselves–fifteen years in the future It’s 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They’ve been best friends almost as long–at least, up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh’s family gets a free AOL CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so that Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign on, they’re automatically logged onto Facebook . . . but Facebook hasn’t been invented yet. Josh and Emma are looking at themselves fifteen years in the future. Their spouses, careers, homes, and status updates–it’s all there. And every time they refresh their pages, their futures change. As they grapple with the ups and downs of what their lives hold, they’re forced to confront what they’re doing right–and wrong–in the present.“

Ashes by Ilsa Bick
“It could happen tomorrow . . . An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the
sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system,
and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead
parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after
the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom-a young soldier-and
Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised
family and the others who are spared, it’s now a question of who can be trusted
and who is no longer human. Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and

devastation. “Gripped me from beginning to end-dark, creepy and suspenseful. I
loved it.” -James Dashner, New York Times Best-Selling Author of THE MAZE
RUNNER “A haunting and epic story of survival in a shattered world. ASHES is a
must read.” -Michael Grant, New York Times Best-Selling author of

BANNED BOOKS WEEK 2011
From ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom : “A challenge is defined as a formal, written complaint, filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness. The number of challenges reflects only incidents reported. We estimate that for every reported challenge, four or five remain unreported. Therefore, we do not claim comprehensiveness in recording challenges.”
