Hi! I ́m Alejandro Lleó and I will explane you the book that I wrote:
A weird illness, a young scientists group, and a time machine, do you believe in happy endings?
The characters first met were in the MIT University because they study there and they made friends, do you want to know them? , they are the characters from my story:
-Peter: Tall, curly and blond hair, funny and friendly. -Jonathan: Medium tall, a short and black hair and boor. -Jerry: An English man, short tall and long hair.
-Mike: The new of the University, friendly, medium tall.
Want to save the life of Fernando, an Argentinian man, tall, blond and long hair and a very good friend that he was diagnosed at 20 years old from ALS, and the cure will be done at 2020.
The time machine designed by them will allow them to travel to the future and get the cure of this disease. But they will have problems because a wair broke and they will go to another years that they don ́t need to go.
In August 2014 i knew in social networks the #IceBucketChallenge trending topic, it was a way to collect money for ALS fundation. I thought that was the moment to write a book to raise awareness about the importance of publish and giving to know this type of diseases. When I knew this desease my life changed, I knew wonderful people that they fight day by day to survive, and always have a smile to give me. So I thought I had to do something to help them.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor neurons of the brain, brainstem and spinal cord, which are the cells responsible for transmitting the order of voluntary movement of the brain to the muscles.
I ́ve been studying during four years all about this degenerative illness and the work done in this foundation. All dates on the disease were contrasted in my book, but I want call the attention of young people, so I decided to write a science fiction novel. This isn ́t my first novel for teenagers, I need sensensitize the youth, because they are our present and more important, they will be our future, so they will have the key of the time machine. “The novel overflow sensitivity in a world where people meet without looking at each other ́s face.”
I hope that you already know that all the people deserve an opportunity to try to survive. The prupose of my book is to collect money to donate at ALS ́investigation.
I hope you enjoy.
