Reader Ï Stuck in Neutral ✓ Terry Trueman

How sick is this I'm the major jock stud in high school but my brother has the brain of a badminton birdie and a body to match I've got everything and he's got nothing I'm a three year three sport letterman and Shawn can't even stand up Like I said sick huh? It's hard to be a brother to someone who doesn't even know you're there How can you talk to him when he can't understand a thing you say? How can you listen to him when he can't speak a word? How can you love him when he's so messed up he can't love you back? And how can you have a life of your own when your father bailed on the family leaving you to be the man of the house? Fueled by rage at what has happened to his family Paul is ready to explode And he is haunted by something even worsesomething he can never tell anyone It is something he will have to face if he is to have any hope of a future at all While Cruise Control is a companion to Terry Trueman's Printz Honor book Stuck in Neutral it is the completely independent story of a family's other sonthe one who is healthy gifted normal It is a courageously hopeful story told with power compassion and humor I have a confession to make I actually wasn't going to start reading CRUISE CONTROL for another week or two After all I had just read INSIDE OUT and STUCK IN NEUTRAL in uick succession I have a lot of other books on my reviewing plate and I didn't want anyone to think I had a Terry Trueman obsession But then I decided I want to read this book now I probably do have a Terry Trueman obsession and no one is going to stop me Sothat's my story I'm sticking to it and now for the story of CRUISE CONTROLThis book is billed as the companion book to STUCK IN NEUTRAL not a seuel And for good reason This book doesn't pick up where SIN leaves off although I would recommend reading SIN first if for no other reason than to learn the history of Shawn McDaniel and his family CRUISE CONTROL is the story of Paul McDaniel older brother to Shawn and sister Cindy son of a prize winning poet father who abandoned their family and a mother who works hard to take care of her childrenPaul is fully aware of the unfairness and inconsistencies in his life He's the star of the basketball team his brother is a vegetable confined to his wheelchair and unable to control any of his movements from blinking his eyelids to swallowing his food Paul is always angry even to the point of physically attacking virtual strangers his brother is unable to show any emotion at all from love to annoyance He hates his father for leaving the family and yet wonders what it would be like for him to be a bigger part of it Paul's life is for all accounts and purposes messed up As his sister Cindy puts it There's no way I'll ever believe that the problems a brother like Shawn brings to a family are 'gifts from God'As Paul discovers that his father might not have left the family due to abandonment as his feelings of rage turn to shame for a secret he's kept way too long Paul realizes the truth that his mother has long known It's okay to love your brotherCRUISE CONTROL is Paul's story and it's just as heartfelt and genuine as Shawn's I'm sorry to leave the McDaniel family behind but at least it's with the feeling of love and respect and not sorrow and shameReviewed by Jennifer Wardrip aka The Genius
