I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! Having read the two books that precede this (Stuck in Neutral and Cruise Control), I was very happy to get a real sense of closure with the characters and Shawn's fate. The only thing I didn't like was how different Shawn's 'voice' is in the novel compared to Stuck in Neutral. I think the author allowed his own voice to show through too often and the story, occasionally, became more philosophical than anything. But, that being said, the whole series is great and offers such a different perspective on the severely disabled that as, a society as a whole, we can benefit from.

This will give you a different perspective! It is the sequel to, "Stuck in Neutral". I will rate it when I am done reading it.
