But as the story progresses, Paul realizes that even though Shawn may not understand him, or understand love, he will try to love him more as a brother.

(This is the same story of the Terry Trueman novel, "Stuck in Neutral." However, this is from Shawn's brother's point of view (Paul), and it is amazingly interesting.)
