Asher is the author of the phenomenal bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why, which spent over a year on the New York Times bestseller list. Mackler is the author of the critically acclaimed The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things.

Publisher’s Weekly gave The Future of Us a starred review, saying, “With collaborators like these, readers expect an ingenious hook, compelling characters, and thought-provoking content, and these two top-of-their-game authors don’t disappoint.”
One of our teen reviewers, 14 year old Meredith, reviewed the novel and said, “I really enjoyed this book. This book is not only about the little things you do now affecting you later, but it also is really a book about friendship and forgiveness…The characters, the struggles, it definitely seemed all too real. And I loved it!”
