Shawn McDaniel’s life is not what it may seem to anyone looking at him. He is glued to his wheelchair, unable to voluntarily move a muscle—he can’t even move his eyes. For all Shawn’s father knows, his son may be suffering. Shawn may want a release. And as long as he is unable to communicate his true feelings to his father, Shawn’s life is in danger.
To the world, Shawn’s senses seem dead. Within these pages, however, we meet a side of him that no one else has seen—a spirit that is rich beyond imagining, breathing life.
2/5 stars (it was OK)
I think the idea of this book was great but the delivery not so great. So his dad only wants to kill him because he thinks he’s suffering. By the end it comes down to will his dad do it or not and Shawn is just helpless and can’t tell anyone that he is not suffering. I thought the book was too short and it ended abruptly.
Our next book: Night – Ellie Wiesel, Marion Wiesel
