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 believes in him is Ginny, his 10-year-old disabled neighbor. Together, they are learning to take small steps. And he seems to be on the right path, until X-Ray, a buddy from Camp Green Lake, comes up with a get-rich-quick scheme. This leads to a chance encounter with teen pop sensation, Kaira DeLeon, and suddenly Armpit's life spins out of control, with only one thing for certain. He'll never be the same again.

In his first major novel since Holes, critically acclaimed novelist Louis Sachar uses his signature wit combined with a unique blend of adventure and deeply felt characters to explore issues of race, the nature of celebrity, the invisible connections that determine a person's life, and what it takes to stay on course. Doing the right thing is never a wrong choice, but a small step in the right direction.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yaoyao | 1/30/2014

    " It's the sequel to Holes about Armpit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brendon | 1/24/2014

    " I really loved this book. The adventure that the author takes us through is quite engaging. The type of character that the author creates is very unique. "

    " Less intresting than the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/2/2014

    " This book is about another character from Holes. Not quite as good as Holes, but still worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Lehotzky | 1/2/2014

    " This was an awesome sequal to Holes. A must read if you loved the first one. It was a quick easy read that I couldn't put down. There were many plot twists that moved the story along quite easily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nat Frankli | 1/2/2014

    " small steps is the sequal to holes its the story about armpit who leaves camp and comes back to live in the real world he is a gentle giant "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keli | 11/13/2013

    " I liked this better than Holes. It expands on the theme of trying to create a self image in the face of overwhelming expectations (both good and bad) and older teens trying to take control of their lives even if they don't feel ready or capable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Corotis | 10/31/2013

    " Take off from Holes. Similar to Holes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna | 4/17/2013

    " Realistic Fiction, trying to make a quick buck, disabilities, mystery, friendship, music stardom. I listened to this book on audio and definitely was in engaged. It was pretty predictable but intermediate to young adolescents would enjoy the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 9/4/2012

    " Its quiet slow and hard to get into "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/11/2012

    " This book is kind of a sequel to holes. It's awesome and there is a little bit of romance in it. It's cool!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sis_p5ejoseph | 5/23/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justina carter | 1/1/2012

    " Pretty good book for the most part. The only thing is i didnt like how it ended because it left you wondering:/ "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yena | 11/30/2011

    " Louis Sachar's Holes was very well written so I had really high expectations for this book. This book was simple and not as exciting as I expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexis | 11/23/2011

    " It wasn't exactly the ending that I was expecting, but it was still very interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Skop | 5/21/2011

    " Small Steps is a children's book from the same author that wrote Holes. It actually has some of the same characters in it that Holes does. I actually enjoyed it better than Holes. It had a good meaning and I think kids would really enjoy it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddie | 5/16/2011

    " Trying to milk the Holes franchise, aren't we Louis Sachar? AREN'T WE?
    Pretty good book.
    Although I don't really remember any of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tatum | 5/16/2011

    " Small Steps is only good if you have already read Holes (which I did). The end of Small Steps is sweet and very, very confusing... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 4/23/2011

    " It's kind of harsh but I think holes is better "

    " Well...this sequel to Holes is no Holes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 3/31/2011

    " What a great book! Really good for inner city schools, you can really relate to the main character. Wonderful heart warming book. Good to use instead of holes same format/writing style not as well known. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morgan | 3/18/2011

    " I absolutely loved this book!!! <3 i would reccomemnd this book to everyone! i have it if anyone wants to borrow it!! :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 3/17/2011

    " I think I thought this one would be just as exciting as Holes, but the semi-sort of sequel which focused on "Armpit" and his post Camp Green Lake experiences was a very good story, too. (I did miss Stanley Yelnats and Zero though...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evie | 3/9/2011

    " I always end up reading young adult novels when I visit my parents place. "
