If you have ever seen or read the book/movie Holes you will be interested in the book Small Steps. This book is the sequel to the book Holes. The main characters of the book are Armpit and X-Ray; they were both in the first book Holes. Also there is a new character, not in the first book, named Kaira DeLeon, a famous singer. The book takes place in Austin Texas in alower class enviroment. The main event that takes place is Armpit and X-Ray buy six tickets to the concert so they can resell them to make more money. A quality about this book that makes it different than any other book is that it is more relatable to your life like you actually feel his emotions or feelings or troubles. A suprise moment in the novel is instead of resealing two of the six tickets he bought to resell; he keeps two and takes his friend of his that has a disability. Being the sequel to one of my favorite movies was what drew me into the novel. Some examples of excellent writing is for every time the disable person would talk therte would be a stutter. In conclusion if you were considering if this book is worth reading i would highly recommend that you read it.

This sequel to Holes follows Armpit (now Theodore) and X-Ray after their release from the now defunct Camp Green Lake. Armpit is finishing high school and is gainfully employed by a landscaping company. (As the owner says, 'You Camp Green Lake boys dig faster than anyone I know.') X-Ray, however, is still scheming--and offers to let his buddy Armpit in on his latest deal. Armpit is torn between loyalty to his friend and wanting to stay on his path to success. Issues of breaking old habits and choosing to do the right thing are at the forefront, making this an excellent read for middle and high school students--and adult fans of the previous book and the movie as well. My 7th- and 8th-grade students are already clamoring to read it! Well done, Mr. Sachar! (...when's the movie?)

This book taught me to very impotant lesons. First, take small steps to get through life, if the step you take is too big... the current wil sweep you off your feet. Oh. I forgot there is a number two. Two, people may say mean thing to you or to someone else and before you rush over to them at recess or in the hall...ask your self, do you think what they said is true? Amanda Roodzant

All I have to say is that I am completely blown away with how good of a writer Louis Sachar is. This book, and also the original, kept me up late at night reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open.

Small Steps is the sequel to the award-winning book, Holes. How was life for Armpit and X-Ray after their term at Camp Greenlake? Armpit is back home in Austin with his mother, after his release from the camp. He's trying to keep himself busy and stay out of trouble now. X-Ray is making things hard on Armpit with ticket-scalping/get-rich ideas that could eventually land them in trouble. There is, shall I say, a "huge step" between Holes and Small Steps. Particularly, I am referring to the suggested age for kids reading these books. Holes was great for middle-graders, but Small Steps has more mature themes and additional language that the first book didn't contain. Personally, I don't really recommend reading Small Steps for the reasons I've just mentioned. Regardless, the sequel may or may not be suited for the same kids who just finished reading Holes.
