Item description for To Live Again by Lurlene McDaniel...

With her leukemia in remission for five years, Dawn has been able to hide her sickness from her friends, but when another medical crisis causes her to be partially paralyzed, she worries how she will handle this obvious condition as a high school student.

Publishers Description
Dawn Rochelle looks like any other 17year-old girt, but looks can be deceiving. At the age of 13, Dawn was diagnosed with leukemia. Now almost five years into remission, Dawn's a senior in high school and looking forward to going to college. But her plans are disrupted when she suffers another medical crisis that causes partial paralysis. The doctors are optimistic about her recovery, but Dawn finds herself giving in to despair. At least during remission she could try to forget about her cancer and pretend she was a normal girl. But the effects of the paralysis are impossible to hide from her friends and the boy she cares about. Dawn had thought her bad times were over. Will she be able to find the strength and courage to live again?

Dawn Rochelle Novels  Sep 23, 2007
I love the Dawn Rochelle novels. I love how the author goes into good detail.
veryyyyyyyyyy good book  Dec 6, 2006
The Dawn Rochelle books were very good books. I was touched by this book because i had a firend in 2 grade that died from cancer. And it helped me through it.
Dawn Rochelle Series  Jul 16, 2006
I loved the first 4 novels by LM in the Dawn Rochelle Series. I thought that they were original and awesome! But in the 5th DR series novel, "To Live Again" I was highly dissapointed. Since the DR series was at first just 4 books, and the 5th was written years later, you find yourself thinking "This isn't the Dawn we know!!!" Dawn seems to have a different attitude, like a different person, and a less likable one at that. The different obstacles Dawn go through are boring, and rather stupid. I found the book to put a damper on the whole series. In my opinion, if you read the DR series, just stop at the 4th one, and skip the 5th.

To Live Again By Megha

To live Again by Lurlence Mc Daniel's is an amazing story. Dawn the main character in this book was diagnosed with leukemia when she was thirteen and had a stroke at the age of seventeen. It was lunch time when her left arm felt heavy and she collapsed on to the ground in front of everyone. Then all of a sudden she was rushed to the hospital. Dawn had a stroke and lost many brain cells and it would be hard for her to recover. She worked with many therapists to help her fully recover. Her favorite therapist was Haley; she helped Dawn stand and walk. Dawn was in her senior year of high school and wanted to go to collage. Also she wanted to graduate with her class but it would take a lot of hard work because she had to recover. Dawn was determined to graduate on time so she got a tutor to help her with her classes. Dawn finally caught up with the two grading periods she missed. Then Dawn was finally well enough to go back to school. Everyone was really nice to her and welcomed her back. Especial her friends Jake and Rhonda. Jake is one of Dawn's friends and she had liked Jake for along time. Rhonda is one of Dawns really good friends who helped her with her books and drives her home. Tasha is one of Jake's friends Tasha also likes Jake. Tasha's Brother Brad got into a serious motorcycle accident and is in critical condition. In the end Jake asks Dawn to the prom and Dawn with hard work graduates on time.
I think this book was very exciting to read because Dawn was in critical condition and was always working hard to get better. I felt like I was in the book because of the way the author described what Dawn was going through. I thought the main conflict was very interesting because some people don't fully recover from strokes so I wanted to know if Dawn would or not. I think all the characters in this book seemed real because of the medical conditions that were in the book. Also because of all the people that helped Dawn because there are people who want to help others. I think the ending of this book was amazing. I think this because Dawn overcame everything that was against her.
I think the author's voice was someone watching everything going on and reporting it. The author used a wide range of vocabulary also the vocabulary was very descriptive. The author made you feel and experience what Dawn was going through which I really liked. The author used dialogue and tone well also was very descriptive. I really liked the authors writing style.
I would rate this book a ten out of ten because I think it was amazing. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an inspiring story, short book and a great read. Compared to other books I have read it is really great and one of my favorites.
From this book I learned many things I learned alot about strokes. I learned that to always believe in your self, you need to work hard to get in places in life and life isn't easy. I really liked how Dawn always believed in her self and never gave up. Dawn has been through some up having some much experience losing a loved one she helped Tasha get over her Brother. With out Dawn Tasha would have never realized that she has to move on with her life. Read To Live Again by Lurlence Mc Daniel.

Dawn Rochelle has been in remission for almost 4 years after her battle with leukemia. She has overcome Chemotherapy, infections, and a bone marrow transplant. she is a senior in high school, lost and made more friends than she can count. But one day something happens that brings Dawn's hopes and dreams to a screeching halt she can't move her left side at all it is a useless lump she can't talk, read, write, or even walk. She can only think, think about her family and friends. Dawn has had a stroke that has killed brains cells so she is paralyzed temporally on the left side. Now dawn must think and work very hard to accomplish the simplest of tasks. Dawn is giving up knowing she is hopeless. One night why lying in bed in the dead of the night she is visited by a very special friend. Long after visiting hours have passed and her family has gone home. This special friend gives her strength and courage to fight threw her battles. Can Dawn find the strength to get her old life back and walk with her graduating class in June or will she fall to the mercy of even more tragedies? Read To live again to find out. This book is realistic fiction. This book takes place in ohio.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good cry. Any girl from the ages of 12-112 would like this book. There is a warning to this book if you have a soft heart have o tissue box handy you will cry. You may cry and you may cheer but you will not know what is going to happen next; this author is always throwing curve balls at you so be prepared. What makes this book such a topper is it makes you think about what you have and what you might do if you where to loose all abilities except thinking. It makes you wonder if you could count on your friends and family to help you every minute of every day. It makes you feel even lucky that you can do the simplest tasks without thinking and not having to have special care. well at least it did for me. So if you like a page turner and a good cry this book is for you.
