When he loses his left hand in an accident, Norm finds that the world becomes a complicated place. But he refuses to give up the things he loves - after all, who says you need two hands to play sports or a musical instrument?


Audible Editor Reviews

Young narrator Ryan Sparkes' performance is genuine and heartfelt, it feels as though he's telling his own life story, so fully immersed is he in the character of 11-year-old Norm, who loses his left hand in an accident. Supported by the stirring performances of a full cast, Sparkes traces the challenges Norm faces - from the bullying at school to his attempt to continue playing baseball on the school team. Set in postwar America, this heartwarming story is based on the real experiences of the author's husband, and the inspiring interview with the couple will have listeners ending this audiobook with uplifted feelings.

This is a full cast audio production. There is a great message of perserverance and courage. The mom is a hero. This is a great book for the whole family. I even gave it to my 78 year old father to listen to and he LOVED it! One of mine and my kids favorite audiobooks.
