Publisher Comments:

In first grade, twins Alexis and Adam wrote down what they wanted to be when they grew up and put it in their teachers 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. Adams leukemia is now in remission but, sadly, so is the twins family. Their mother and father are always working—not only dont they have time for Alexis and Adam, they dont have time for each other. Alexis cant 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. Adams illness reunites the family. And Alexis discovers that the time capsule predictions werent so far off the mark.

From the Hardcover edition.
