From the Inside Flap
In first grade, twins Alexis and Adam wrote down what they wanted to be when they grew up and put it in their teacher's time capsule. Now entering their senior year in high school, they are surprised to find out what they wrote: Alexis wanted to "help people" and Adam wanted to be a fireman. But that was before Adam got sick and their family fell apart. Adam's leukemia is now in remission but, sadly, so is the twins' family. Their mother and father are always working--not only don't they have time for Alexis and Adam, they don't have time for each other. Alexis can't even convince them to take a weekend off for one last family vacation to Disney World.
No one is prepared when Adam gets sick again, but this time Alexis is not alone. Adam's illness reunites the family. And Alexis discovers that the time capsule predictions weren't so far off the mark.

Adam's leukemia is now in remission, but sadly the twins' parents are so busy working that they don't have much time for them or each other. Alexis can't even persuade them to go on a vacation to Disney World. Unfortunately no one is prepared when Adam gets sick again. Will his health improve, or will he lose his battle? And can Alexis save the family?
This book made me think about all the children in the world who are dealing with life-threatening illnesses. There is a freshman at my school who had leukemia when she was little and she immediately came to mind. If you like reading inspirational stories about young people, read THE TIME CAPSULE to find out what happens to Adam and his family.
--- Reviewed by Ashley Hartlaub
This is the best book I have ever read, even though it is very emotional and made me and my other friends that read it cry. It has a very good plot and it is very heartwarming. I would recommened this book to everyone.
The twins parents are always at work, and it seems like a divorce is possible. Alot is going on for these busy teenagers and Alexis is so whirled up, she doesn't see the signs.
Adam is losing weight. Adam has bruises. Adam is in TROUBLE. With the truth of a relapse sinking into Alexis's brain, life spins out of control.
Alexis and her boyfrined split. There are no future signs of recovery in view for Adam. Alexis just wants things to be the same, before Adam ever had cancer. But how can that happen when your brother for eighteen years is hanging on by a finger for life?
