The book One-Handed Catch is about a kid named Norm Schmidt. World War 2 is over and him and his friend Leon wanted to go set off the fireworks. They couldn't set up the fireworks during the war because of all the blackouts. Norm is eleven years old and he really wanted to set off those fire works. One day Norm works in his fathers meat market. While grinding some meat Norm loses attention of his hand and his hand gets caught in the meat grinder. Norms' life was never going to be the same. Regardless if he had one hand or not he was going to still learn how to play baseball again. Neither Leon or his family though he would be able to do this. This books shows the pros and cons of living with one hand. I gave this book a 5 because now it's one of my favorite books next to Soul Surfer. This book is great for people that want to understand life with one hand or for people that need to learn to not ever give up. This book is 248 pages so it will take you about 1-3 days to complete. You should pick up this book at your local library now!

One-Handed Catch by MJ Auch is a very fascinating story about a boy named Norman. Norman is an eleven year old boy after world war two. At Norman¿s family store he cuts his hand of so he will have to go on with life with only one hand. He has to go on with life like, he want to be an artist but he is upset that he could not be one because he has one hand. Then he wanted to be a professional baseball pitcher for the giants. When it came to baseball try outs he made the team and every game he nearly pitches a perfect game. So I would really recommend this book.

The book I'm reviewing is One-Handed Catch by MJ Auch. The book is really good. I liked it, so I hope other people like it. The book is about a kid that loses his hand in a meat grinder. But he still tries out for baseball and he works hard to make the team. He has a best friend his name is Leon and they always do stuff together. They practice together and help each other to make the team. I can relate to Norm because he likes to play baseball like me. I like to pitch like him too. He never gives up too like me. He gets mad at his friends and does not talk to them some times to. I like this book a lot because Norm works hard at stuff. He loves the game of baseball too. I like books that don't give up. So if you like books that people don't give up, this is the one. I would recommend this book to a person that likes sports or people that don't give up. It tells a lot about sports. I think this book is good so you should read this book

This book is about a boy who loses his hand and loves the game of baseball. He doesn't believe he can still play nor does his friend Leon. The boy practices though. He starts believing he can do it when he starts making baseball training things. The boy learns that even with one hand, anything is still possible.
