Stuck In Neutral


             The book I read was Stuck in Neutral. The book is about a boy name Shawn who
             lives in a nice town outside Seattle, Washington. He has a brother and sister named Paul
             and Cindy. He gets along pretty well with both of them. His parents got divorced when
             he was young and he now lives with his mother. His father is a very popular writer.
             Shawn has this great gift that he can remember perfectly everything anyone has said to
             him. There is one problem though, even though he can remember anything anyone has
             said to him he can not say anything back. This is because he has a condition called
             cerebral palsy. When he was born he received brain damage because a blood cell burst
             inside his head. Now he can't control any part of his body, which means he can't talk as
             well. Shawn believes that his father is planning on killing him because of things he has
             been saying. He believes he is going to kill not because they do not get along, but because
             his father thinks Shawn is suffering with his disease, and loves him to much to see him
             suffer. In the end Shawn and his father are all alone and it seems that his father is about to
             kill him, but Shawn has a seizure and it never tells what happens next.
             I read the book by using many strategies. One strategy I used was I tried to
             visualize what was happening. This helped me by keeping myself interested with what I
             was reading. I also re-read something when I was confused or didn't understand what I
             was reading. This helped me also understand it better because if I didn't re-read when I
             didn't understand something I would get more confused as I kept reading. Another
             strategy I used was I took notes after each chapter. The book was already pretty easy, but
             this made the book even more easier because if I forgot something I could just go back
             and look at my notes and not have to go through each page to find what I was looking
