Terry Trueman's Stuck In Neutral was inspired by his son Sheehan, who has cerebral palsy, is not able to communicate, and has been labeled profoundly developmentally disabled. Trueman recently penned Sheehan: Heartbreak and Redemption, about his own personal struggle with his son's severe cerebral palsy that inspired Stuck in Neutral. Trueman's protagonist Shawn McDaniel is in much the same boat; he's unable to communicate or control any of his muscles, including his eyes, and even his family has chalked him up as profoundly retarded.

But Stuck in Neutral, told from Shawn's point of view, reveals a witty narrator with a photographic memory and a zest for life, even if he's not able to communicate it to his family. There's not a trace of self-pity, even though he's at the mercy of family and caretakers for everything from feeding to bathrooming, and he's in a class of profoundly retarded classmates. The plot revolves around the suspicion that Shawn's father is planning to kill him out of "mercy" for Shawn's suffering and his ever-present seizures.

The binding link that weaves throughout the story centers on his father's poem about young Shawn that won numerous awards including the Pulitzer. Now his father, who deserted the family years ago, is a celebrity for his poem that presents Shawn as a helpless, pitiable object, not the funny, smart teenager that he's become, if only in his head, and his father seems inspired by a recent "mercy killing" of another handicapped child.

Trueman does a masterful job of leaving the ending open (he penned a novel written from Shawn's brother Paul's perspective, Cruise Control, that explores Paul's feelings towards his brother and his situation, which is also open-ended in its final decision), and Shawn is an utterly hip, real narrator that shows us how easy (and dangerous) it is to judge someone based on appearances.

"If my dad walked into my room right now and killed me, no one would ever know what I was really like. I want to love someone, and feel loved in return, for my real self. What if someone loved me enough to somehow break through and discover that I'm inside this body?"

STUCK IN NEUTRAL is a book that will stay with me. I will never look at the Life Skills kids in my school the same. Terry Trueman's story pulled me into Shawn's world-- and ultimately opened my mind about people that I am just as guilty of ignoring as Shawn's family is. What an amazing, amazing, powerful read. Should be required reading in high school.

I watched a kid perform a portion of this book at the National Championship for Speech and Debate sometime ago, and I was intrigued by the story so I bought the book. I had no idea it was as short as it was, but it did give a more complete story (compared to the 10 minute Dramatic Interpretation). I will tell you right now that the ending is like "Inception" - it leaves you hanging!!! So if you hate those kinds of stories where the ending is unresolved, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. It'll leave you extremely frustrated!

If you have ever watched a smart person with cerebral palsy being treated like an idiot by those around him, you will appreciate this short novel. This book calls into question the assumption made by many that a severe physical disability automatically indicates a severe mental disability. Shawn, the protagonist of this story, attends public school in a Severely Handicapped Special Day Class. He is surrounded by people who baby-talk to him and talk around and over him, assuming that he does not understand. Being fiction, one cannot take this story as proof that all people like Shawn are highly intelligent, but it should make one question the assumption that they are not. I loved his description of the Special Day Class, although I thought he was unbelievably forgiving of the people around him. I personally cringe (and sometimes enter into a deep depression) when I have to enter such a class, knowing that the students who are being changed and fed and listening to the same stupid nursery rhymes day after day have surely got other places they would rather be. It has to be extremely frustrating to be so unseen. If this book can make people question their assumptions about people with disabilities, then it has done a wonderful thing. It is less dangerous to assume that someone understands what is going on than to assume that they cannot, in terms of how much damage you are going to inflict on that person. Anyone who is going to work, play, or live with someone with severe CP should read this book. I used to reccommend Christy Brown's "Down All The Days" which is incredible, but a long, hard read and no one finishes it. This book is short and engaging and is more likely to be read.

THIS is a book that seems real and makes me so want to be able to understand and communicate with the handicapped people I help. We/I don't understand what they could tell us if they could talk to us. My favorite part is where he says he appreciates his big brother for putting taco chips in his mouth because, unlike his normal mush-stuff, they have an exciting taste. And [SPOILER ALERT] when he has seizures and floats above what's happening and can go anywhere he wants.

Writing inside the book is too small
I have taught this book to 8th graders 5 times over the past 10 years. The voice and themes of the protagonist, Shawn, make us all in the abled-world stop and think. It also raises complex, difficult, and unanswerable questions about mercy, grace, dignity and love. Terry Truemen created Shawn with a voice that fits his 14 year-old protagonist. The digital version has some extras like what would Shawn's iPod playlist be and his favorite movies--cool stuff.
