SMALL STEPS is a hip young adult novel from Louis Sachar, the New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Award–winning smash hit phenomenon book and movie/DVD sensation HOLES. Two years after being released from Camp Green Lake, Armpit is home in Austin, Texas, trying to turn his life around. But it's hard when you have a record and everyone expects the worst from you. The only person who believe in Armpit is Ginny, his ten-year-old disabled neighbor. Together, they are learning to take small steps. Armpit seems to be on the right path until X-Ray, a buddy from Camp Green Lake, comes up with a get-rich-quick scheme. X-Ray's plan leads to a chance encounter with teen pop sensation Kaira DeLeon, and suddenly Armpit's life spins out of control. Only one thing is certain: he'll never be the same again. Combining his signature wit with a unique blend of adventure and deeply felt characters, Sachar explores issues of race, the nature of celebrity, the invisible connections that shape a person's life, and what it takes to stay the course. Doing the right thing is never a wrong choice—but always a small step in right direction.

I've finished, she's only part way through (and she doesn't know who Britney Spears is). It was good. I got very...

4.0 If you were wondering what happened after Holes
I finished reading Small Steps and I smiled. This instinctive smile just came across my face and I was sitting on the train just smiling to myself. This book was the companion to Holes that I always wanted and never knew I needed.How many times did I read Holes when I was younger? At least half a do...

I enjoyed reading it, but it never grabbed me the way Holes did. I'm afraid it suffered some from the comparison.
