Love is in the air and on the Internet in The Future of Us, but to mixed success. Kellan and Tyson can't seem to figure out what they want from each other; Josh and Emma are struggling to regain their friendship after Josh's romantic revelation before the book opens; and Emma cannot seem to leave her future alone based on her dislike of the husbands Facebook shows await her. And that's really just to name a few of the ways love is woven into this story. While we see love in all sorts of forms, both good and bad, one thing is always true: It ain't easy… until, of course, it is.
