Book Review: Terry Trueman's Stuck in Neutral
By: Danielle D.
I read the book Stuck in Neutral. It is about a boy named Shawn McDaniel. He has cerebral palsy. And he thinks that his dad is going to kill him. It tells about his life and how he has to deal with his seizures. He has out of body experiences that let him fly around the town. I would suggest this book to anyone.

Additional Information about Stuck in Neutral (as found on Amazon.com):
Stuck in Neutral is a truly unique journey into the mind of a truly unique character. Shawn McDaniel, who is literally trapped in his own body, will serve as a powerful metaphor for teens who feel cornered by circumstances or their own physical shortcomings. Terry Trueman's first-person portrayal of Shawn is made all the more poignant by the fact that Trueman's own son, Henry, also suffers from cerebral palsy. This is an original and moving debut. (Ages 11 to 15)
