Book #41: Small Steps

Ever read Holes by Louis Sachar?  Small Steps picks up where Holes left off, but following Armpit instead of Stanley.  He is struggling to make a life for himself post-juvenile prison and the trauma of Camp Greenlake. There were a lot of good messages about trying to do the right thing when everything is stacked against you, and trying to do right after so many wrongs.  If you’re a fan of Holes, chances are you’ll like this book.  I felt bad for his missteps and understood his temptations to live a life he couldn’t have, but I didn’t enjoy Small Steps as much as I did Holes.  Probably just personal preference, because Armpit is more likable than Stanley in my opinion.

Goodreads rating: 3 stars.  It was written in Sachar’s unique voice and had some interesting ideas, but I just didn’t care enough to bump it up.
