Thumbs up!

This book made me think more about being Jewish.

Jason loves baseball and plays in a 6th grade league. His mom remarried a man with two daughters. Jason loves taking care of his stepsisters. On a Saturday afternoon he has a baseball game and his stepdad told him he could not play that game because it was the Sabbath. He makes a plan with his friend to go to the baseball game and then get back in time for the Sabbath.

One of the best sports books ever

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This book was one of the best sports books I have ever read! I loved reading the part about how Jason had some Saturday baseball games and his team and Coach really needed him. But it was Shabbat, and his stepfather didn't allow him to play baseball on Shabbat. I liked the part where Jason had to lie about visiting his Grandfather and going to the Synnagouge event.

This book was a good read. It taught me several things, such as, compromising, listening to what everyone has to say, and how to explain your feelings. It only took me a few days of about a half hour to 45 minutes of reading a day to finish this. I recommend this book to all ages. Good job, Mrs. Miriam Rinn! I would like to hear more!!

I read this a lot of times but that does not make it good

This book made me think more about the importance of family. In my opinion that Jason kid was really annoying all his stepfather wanted to do was connect with him and he refused to. You should read this but it is really honestly kind of weird

Very Good
Submitted 3/1/2019 by glitterygarden

I think that this book is cool because Jason plays baseball. I can relate to this book because I am Jewish as well. I understand that is hard to keep Kosher when you want to go out to eat. I would feel awful if I had to give up something I liked doing on Saturdays just because it was shabbat. It isn't right to have to lie to get something that you want but, I think Jason learned his lesson.

This was a good book. A BOOK THAT YOU COULDN'T PUT DOWN!!! But there were some details that came out of the blue. And some off topic parts and some unexplained parts. (sometimes it can get boring) I would absolutely recommend this book to you if you love stories that include lying and all that jazz and stuff that can make you anxious. Also, it had a nice ending. Overall, it was good.

I liked this book because it was about baseball. Some parts of the story do come out of the blue. For example, when Jason hurts his wrist his step dad comes, even when you don't think he is going to because it is Shabbat.
