BOOK REVIEW: On the Other Hand (Jamie and Ryan Book 1) by Jean Gill



BLURB:

Jamie is left-handed and fed up of being called clumsy by Kelly and her gang. To cheer her up, her friend Ryan looks up famous left-handers on the internet and discovers some surprises, from footballers to mad musicians and a computer genius. Jamie launches a day’s protest in school, her left hand tied behind her back, and ends up in trouble with the Head, but things don’t turn out the way Kelly hoped.

Just when their campaign is going well, Ryan’s mother drags him off to live in America where he faces bullying at its most deadly. Jamie has to wait for the next email to know whether Ryan is coping or whether the worst has happened.

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 13 years

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was a short interesting read. It really moved me with how people will do every little thing they can to make what they believe get across to others. 

This book is about a girl named Jamie that is left handed. She has a hard life because people tease and taunt her because she is left handed. Her friend, Ryan, and her start fighting back by researching left handed famous people. That's not all, Jamie does a whole day with her left hand behind her back. However, the mean girls don't get the message that Jamie and Ryan are trying to get across to them. 

My favorite character is Ryan because he stands up for what's right and never wavers. My favorite part is when they do the newspaper for the school. 

I recommend this book for people who have a problem with left handers. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 13.
