My 12 year old daughter has been reading Lurlene McDaniel books and she absolutely has loved each and every title she has read. Her nook is full of this authors titles and she can't put it down once she starts a new book. As a mother I am very grateful for this author and the way that she writes, allowing our children to feel empathy for the characters as well as learning from the experiences that the characters are going through. 2 thumbs up and 5 stars!!

When I read this book it literally brought tears to my eyes. The whole book just made me wanna lay down and cry. Most of all though it made me appreciate what I have. Lurlene McDaniel is the best author for teenage girls who like love and disaster stories. I think this book is totally worth the price and EVERYONE WILL LOVE IT!!!!

The Time Capsule By: Lurlene McDaniel In the beginning of the story the twins Alexis and Adam get invited to their elementary school Woodland Elementary School in North Miami. It was their first grade teacher Ms. Lola, she had written them a note saying in one of the paragraphs ¿I¿m writing because I want you to join me in a celebration picnic here at Woodland Elementary. First, I¿m celebrating 25 years of teaching first grade. But more than that, I¿m celebrating YOU, my students-that is, all of you can locate who are still attending school in the greater Miami area!¿ She made all the students write what they wanted to be or do when they grew up and she had them do that on the last day of school 'last day of first grade'. She then put the pieces of paper in a box called the time capsule. Well now its time to come open it! ¿So please come to the picnic, get reacquainted with one another, eat pizza and cake and meet my brand new first graders.¿ Ms. Lola wrote. Adam and Alexis went under the giant banyan tree by the playground on the last Friday of August at 3:00 pm., just like Ms. Lola wrote in the letter. Alexis wrote, ¿I want to help people.¿ Adam wrote that he wanted to be a fireman. Later in the story their senior year of high school, Alexis wanted to go to Disney World with her family like they used to when Adam and Alexis were young. Alexis planned the trip, she wanted her parents to go but they were to busy with work. So her father told her to bring her boyfriend Sawyer, her best friend Tessa, Adam 'obviously', Adams girlfriend Kelly, and his friend Wade. Alexis started planning the room situations and all that important stuff. Alexis thought that Kelly¿s parents would only let her go if they shared a room together, so it was Alexis, Tessa, and Kelly, and Adam, Sawyer, and Wade. They had a great time in Disney, they didn¿t want it to ever end but, it had to. About 2 weeks after they came home from Disney Adam had a secure when he was with Kelly and he had to get rushed to the hospital. When Alexis got home their was a note on the table saying Adam was in the hospital, so her and Sawyer rushed over there. When they got their they couldn¿t see Adam right away because he was in surgery but, once he got out only family could see him, so Alexis went in and Sawyer waited in the waiting room. When Ally 'Alexis' went in Adams room she found burses on him all over, she asked him why he had random burses, and it was because he missed one of his treatments and no one could tell he had them in Disney because he was covered up most of the time. She had asked him why he never told her because they tell each other everything or at least she thought so. He said that he didn¿t want to make it a big deal. Well Adam was in the hospital for a couple weeks and then they moved him too Kendall Hospital ER. and that¿s where he staid the longest. After him being in there for so long he made a friends with all the little children on his floor. One of the little boys Rudy, Adam called him his little brother. Adam staid in the hospital through Christmas and his ¿little brother¿ got to get out, Adam said that, that¿s a good Christmas present. Adam decided to make the children teddy bears and dress them with the kids favorite things. He asked Ally and Tessa to help and when Ally told her parents what Adam project was they wanted to help, when Ally told Adam that mom & dad wanted to help he was shocked and said ¿Ally what did you bribe them with?¿ aha Ally said ¿nothing they came to me asking to help.¿ Adam was happy that they wanted to help. After they were done with the project Adam, Ally, and Tessa handed them out to all the children and Adam saved Rudy¿s room for last. He wanted some alone time with his ¿new brother¿ since he was leaving. Adam gave him his teddy bear and a wrapped box. Rudy opened it and it was a baseball glove. The little boy was so happy! He had a big smile on his face, thanking Adam. A month or so later, Adams medican

This book is awesome! I would recomend it to anyone. Lots of girls in my class have read. First it seems boring, but then it gets really really exciting. So if your reading it don't quit because it gets really good. And it gives you clues leading up to when Adam gets sick again. So be looking for them and if you don't find them at first it will tell you in the end. I didn't see them untils the end anyways.

This book was soo good. I loved it. This was the first Lurlene McDaniel book I have read. I could actually relate to this book, because I am also a teenager. She's close with her twin brother. Although I don't have a twin brother or sister, my sister and my age aren't too far apart. This book showed real tragedies that a teenager would go through. This book's base and storyline was capturing. It was so dramatic, and I think that's why I enjoyed it the most. It was puzzling without the confusion. It was really sad, and this was actually the first book where I actually cried while I was reading.

The Time Capsule is a phenomenal book. It carries you through the intense life of a teenager that is struggling with her twin¿s sickness. Alexis¿s family is falling apart. Her mother is staying busy with her real estate, and her father is a lawyer that barely ever takes a vacation. However, that does change when her twin brother, Adam, gets a relapse of his cancer. Now, her whole family has to come together and deal with Adam¿s sickness. The gossip of others and ending of friendships doesn¿t make the sickness any easier for Alexis¿s family, true friends, and especially Adam. This heart wrenching novel shows the bitterness and anguish of the diagnoses of cancer to a beloved brother and son. With stunning details, Lurlene McDaniel informs readers of the pain and suffering of both the family and son when tragedy strikes. This book will make you want to hug your siblings!

Cheating. Betrayal. Break-ups. Destinies crashing. That¿s what Time Capsule written by: Lurlene McDaniel is all about. If you like young teen realistic fiction books, and books that make you cry, and make your heart feel all warm and fuzzy this is the book for you! I promise! The main characters in this book are Alexis and Adam. Alexis is the star captain of the debate team, and Adam is a sweetheart who in his life has suffered from leukemia. This book takes place in present daytime, and It¿s basically about everyday life. When Adam and Alexis ( twins ) were in 1st grade, they wrote down what they wanted to be when they grew up, and they put it in a thing called a time capsule. When entering their senior year in high school, they got invited to a reunion to open up the time capsule, and see what they put. They were in shock what they had written. But when life got turned upside down, and all you can do is believe, Adam and Alexis realized that what they put in the time capsule, wasn¿t so far off the mark. I absolutely loved this book because it made me laugh, and cry, and it was really enjoyable. So read this book. I promise that you won¿t regret it!
