Small Steps: Reviewed

Author:Louis Sachar
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 12 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 12 and up
Year of publication:2006

Small Steps is kind of a sequel to Holes, but it's from the perspective of Armpit (Theodore) instead of Stanley.

I liked Small Steps; I read it in less than a week, although it gets a little smushy in some parts -- lots of kissing and stuff.

In the beginning, it's just a little bit boring, but it picks up at the end.

So if you read it…

Fizzy, age 11

Parent's note: Along with the romance mentioned, the plot also involves battery and an attempted beating to death....
