Small Steps is the sequel to Holes. Armpit, also known as Theodore, is trying to turn his life around after coming home from Camp Green Lake. Armpit also has a few goals: 1. Graduate from high school. 2. Get a job. 3. Save his money. 4. Avoid situations that might turn violent. 5. Get rid of the nickname Armpit. I think that these are very reasonable goals. But then another friend from Camp Green Lake shows up. X-Ray. X-Ray has what he calls a money-making scheme.But the money-making scheme goes all wrong. Armpit and his friend Ginny, who is entering fifth grade and has cerebral palsy, meet teen pop star, Kaira DeLoen. And a mysterious police officer/detective is on the case of the ticket fraud, not knowing that Armpit is one of the people selling illegal tickets. Life is hard for some people. For some people it is harder, especially when you have a criminal record.
First of all, sorry for not posting for a week. I love this blog and I love you for reading this blog. But back to business. Small Steps is full of twists, turns, and a lot of humor. But there is one problem, the author does not really mention Stanley that much(only once). That is a bit annoying. But otherwise the book is great!!! The suspense was killing me. It was also really interesting to see what Armpit thought because we did not really hear about him in the Holes. All in all, this was a pretty good book. Four Stars. Thanks for Reading!!! Have a Great Day!!! -annaleeliz and Buttons
