Publisher Description

Shawn McDaniel's life is not what it may seem to anyone looking at him. He is glued to his wheelchair, unable to voluntarily move a muscle—he can't even move his eyes. For all Shawn's father knows, his son may be suffering. Shawn may want a release. And as long as he is unable to communicate his true feelings to his father, Shawn's life is in danger.

To the world, Shawn's senses seem dead. Within these pages, however, we meet a side of him that no one else has seen—a spirit that is rich beyond imagining, breathing life.

This edition features an Extras section, giving readers even more insight into Shawn's life, and includes a Q&A with Terry Trueman, as well as a sneak peek at the sequel to Stuck in Neutral, Life Happens Next.

    " This is a great book, with many cliff hangers. Its about a boy with autism who, thinks his dad is trying to kill him...... It has a lot great word choice. I would call it a mystery because he doesnt know if his dads gonna kill him so everyday he has to be on red alert! It is a hard read with great word choice. I would recommend this book to anybody who LOVES mystery and adventure books. You definately will love it! "

    " Hard to imagine that a book whose main character is a mind trapped in a useless body can be so engrossing, but this one certainly accomplishes that. I read this with my low-level readers and they would get emotionally entangled in the plight of the main character. The sequel by Trueman, Cruise Control, tells the same story from the brother's point-of-view. An interesting way to approach that topic in the English class, is to have the students read both versions. "

    " Funny and very sad at the same time. And interesting mix of courage and heartbreak. I saw a disabled boy as the genius in his mind. Seeing the rest of the world as whole different place. "

    " Great book. Made me wonder how much of the world i'm really seeing accurately, which i think is a sign of an amazing book. "

    " I didn't really enjoy this book a lot. It's about a boy that has special needs and everybody thinks that he doesn't understand anything that they say. The truth is that he is smarter than most people his age. His father thinks that his son is suffering so he wants to help him. "

    " This story is written in a soft tone that makes you believe this boy has gotten used to his condition, he narrates trying to make his problems humorous. "

    " A compelling fiction book. I would recommend this book to most readers, though it can be difficult because of content and ideas. Interesting viewpoint from inside the head of a handicapped son who cannot express his thoughts or feelings to anyone. "

    " overall it was a good book because it was not to long or short it was just the right lenght for a book like that.it kept my attention for the whole time i was reading it. it has way to many unanswerd questins at the end thought so if you read this book you need to read cruise control. "

    " Another great pick for reluctant readers. Follow this one up with Cruise Control, the story from Paul's perspective. "

    " This is a really interesting perspective on the "dragon parents" dilemma - how much does a child in a non-normal body really understand? What if we just haven't come up with appropriate measurements yet?! Heartwrenching! "
