CAPSULE: SHORT STORIES ABOUT TEENAGERS THROUGHOUT THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
York : Delacorte, 1999.
Capsule gives you a whirlwind tour of the 20th century. Each short
story represents a key event in that decade. We start out from 1900-1909
with “The Electric Summer.” Did you know that iced tea was first
introduced at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair? As the stories progress
through time we experience Prohibition, the Depression, World War II, the
Cold War, and the swinging 60s. “Do You Know Where Your Parents Are”
is a parody of the 70s which were perhaps the most controversial years
in the past millennium. (Read from pages 169-172.)
Hang onto your hats, folks, it’s a wild ride! (Mary Huebscher,
