The Printz Honor Book Stuck in Neutral introduced the world to Shawn McDaniel, a fourteen-year-old kid with cerebal palsy. But what happens next?Shawn's got a new perspective on life. Only no one has a clue. That's because they can't see past his wheelchair, his limp body, his drool. They don't know he has a perfect auditory memory, that he's in love with a girl, and that he holds steadfast to his belief that someday, someone will realize there's way more to him than his appearance. But how do you connect with others when you can't talk, walk, or even wave hello? In this long-awaited sequel to Stuck in Neutral, Shawn discovers a new definition of normal and finds that life happens next for everyone.Life Happens Next accompanies the rerelease of Stuck in Neutral, which features a fresh cover design and an Extras section so readers can learn more about author Terry Trueman and his unforgettable character Shawn McDaniel.Awards and Praise for Stuck in Neutral:Michael L.
