Extractions: £5.99, paperback Buy this Book Shawn has cerebral palsy: highly intelligent, he has no control whatsoever over his body or its functions. His eyes wander or settle without control. His mouth, tongue, swallowing muscles all have a life of their own. No act of will by Shawn can affect anything he does or anything that happens to him. Yet Shawn's mental life is full of dreams and hopes and love and appreciation of all that is around him - music he happens to hear, things and people that happen to cross his line of vision. Then Shawn begins to fear that his father - from despair at Shawn's condition and believing that Shawn has no life, and never can have, is no more than a vegetable, and never will be - is planning the unthinkable - to put him out of his misery - to kill him...

Extractions: Books and More for Kids and Teens Main www.TerryTrueman.com Official site for the author of Stuck in Neutral currently involved in a controversy in a Wisconsin school. Some parents in Evansville, WI are trying to get the book removed from the curriculum claiming it is obscene. The site offers press coverage of the reconsideration process currently underway as well as Trueman's new book, Inside Out . Kudos to Trueman for giving prominent space to the both sides of the controversy. Here's to hoping the reconsideration process works and the title is retained.

I need to decide if this situation is real or not; I need to decide that right now. Sometimes I understand what's going on, and other times I don't have a clue. If I don't figure this one out, I could be in trouble." According to the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression: "Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe brain disorder which affects approximately 1 percent of the world population. Approximately 2 million people in the United States suffer from the disease in a given year. Schizophrenia is characterized by positive and negative symptoms. Positive symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, disorganized thinking and markedly disorganized behavior. Negative symptoms include reduced emotional expression, social withdrawal, loss of pleasure, difficulty concentrating and/or thinking, and a lack of energy, spontaneity or initiative. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing psychotic relapses. Schizophrenia is usually treated with antipsychotic medication, and may be used in combination with psychosocial therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Many scientists believe that schizophrenia results from a chemical imbalance in the brain, and are investigating various neurotransmitters in determining this imbalance."

Extractions: E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org If you are a writer who is a also a reviewer, you hope for two things when a new book lands on your desk: You hope that you'll like it because it's much easier to review a good book than a poor one, and you hope that you won't like it too much, for reasons of that particularly lively species of green eyed monster; writers' jealousy. Rarely, you are sent a book which prompts such strong feelings that you hardly know how to begin writing about it. The "young adult" novel Stuck in Neutral by American writer Terry Trueman was, for me, one of these. I knew from the start that many other reviewers would see it through different eyes. "No doubt, others will call this a brave and moving account or something similar I wrote in my review, "but I would be reluctant to put this book into the hands of young readers just as I would not give them a racist book or one which told how terrible it is to grow up gay or lesbian This is very strong stuff, a review that has almost nothing good to say about the book and I didn't enjoy doing it.

Extractions: HarperTempest March 2002 $13.95 116p pbk ISBN: 0-06-447213-2 Shawn McDaniel suffers from Cerebral Palsy, and cannot walk, talk, communicate or do anything of his own free will. Stuck in Neutral is told from Shawns perspective, and gives us a glimpse into his mind: his ideas, thoughts and concerns and his belief that his father is trying to kill him. One of the best things about Stuck in Neutral is the way the author brings out the personality of Shawn through his thoughts about the outside world. Stuck in Neutral is very much a character driven story, which is the most distinguishable feature of the novel. However, i t is an uneventful novel, whereby the main character does not have anything happen to him except seizures. This cannot be helped in part since Shawn suffers from cerebral palsy, though you cant help thinking that the story is a little one way. Shawn responds to the world through his thoughts, but no one seems to interact with him. he lack of events also results in little climax at the end of the novel which also proves to be somewhat disappointing as it fails to deliver the answers that the reader set out to discover. If youre 13 to 15 years old, dont care much for action, and like short, easy-to-read novels where the journey is more enjoyable than the destination

Extractions: IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA ORDER ii. The women in the photographs are almost certainly not minors; iii. At most, then, the Government has initiated a "review" of CompuServe purportedly for obscenity and child pornography based only on the availability of indecent material there; (n) Thus, neither actual obscenity nor child pornography provided the impetus for the Department of Justice's referral of CompuServe for "review" by the FBI; (o) Notwithstanding the Government's post hoc rationalization for the actions of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Division, BY THE COURT: [signature] STEWART DALZELL, J. FOOTNOTES For the purposes of this motion only, we refer to the "indecency" provision of § 223(a) and the "patently offensive" provision of § 223(d) as the "indecency provisions". Some of these quotations arose in discussions of the content of the "Schmidt notebook." The Schmidt notebook is a set of exhibits to the declaration of Howard A. Schmidt, a Government expert. The notebook contained downloaded sexual images that range from modestly titillating centerfold-type photographs to depictions of hard-core sex acts. The Government's comments at oral argument made clear that it views the Schmidt notebook as containing, for the most part, indecent material. See e.g., Transcript of May 10, 1996, at 106 (arguing that Congress "needs to sweep into . . . the indecency standard this type of stuff, the kind of stuff in the Schmidt notebook"). Indeed, in the Government's view, "that's the point":
