|Plot Summary of Cruise Control|
Paul's brother is retarded. No, more than retarded. He sits in his wheelchair all day and drools and makes an "ahhhhhhh" sound. Paul loves him, but hates him at the same time. They family is broken up because of his brother Shawn. Dad left. He abandoned the family and left them all on their own. Paul will never forgive that.
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.)
