  • Small steps, Cause I don t know where I m goin.Small steps,I just take it day to day.Small steps,Somehow get myself together,Then maybe I ll discoverWho I am along the wayI think it s rather silly to label this book a sequel to Holes, when it simply takes two non prominent characters from Holes and takes their story forward And that s about the only thing connecting the 2 books, as they couldn t possibly have been different.I know a lot of people have had an issue with this book as they quite o [...]


  • I can t tell if this was supposed to be a young adult book or not Small Steps is a sequel to the book Holes, which was fun to read In this second book, Sachar follows Armpit as he transitions back into society after his stint at Camp Green Lake I thought the premise had potential, but in my opinion, it was a fairly transparent story about puppy love and cliche rehabilitation The book ends with a startling act of violence which doesn t fit with the rest of the story, and then leaves the two main [...]


  • Contains minor spoilers.Unfortunately, I didn t enjoy Small Steps as much as I did Holes In fact I found it rather boring It was great that we got to see where Armpit and X Ray ended up after their stint at Camp Green Lake but I would have preferred reading about Stanley While I didn t mind Armpit he wasn t a bad character, just dull I really didn t like X Ray I didn t understand why he lied and cheated I get that a fair few ex prisoners relapse and end back in jail, but ticket scamming It just [...]


  • Last we saw Armpit, he was digging holes at Camp Green Lake Now, Armpit nicknamed for a wasp bite on his armpit is still digging holes, but now he s getting paid for it, working for a landscaper in his hometown of Austin, TX Armpit or Theodore, as he prefers to be called is trying to straighten his life out after two years of juvie, while everyone is expecting the worst of him The only person who believes in him is his feisty ten year old neighbor Ginny, who has cerebral palsy He is earning hone [...]


  • What s easy about being the sequel to Holes is that any implausibilities of plot are irreproachable, cause you can t hardly get implausible than Holes and it was awesome What s hard is simply that you re the sequel to Holes Because it was awesome High bar I m embarrassed to admit it took me 5 years to get around to actually reading Small Steps, the story of Armpit s X Ray influenced adventures back home in Austin, trying to get his life turned around after his time at Camp Green Lake After Armp [...]


  • I was reluctant to read Small Steps since Holes is my all time favorite book and I had heard several negative things from readers concerning how Armpit and X Ray were handled.After reading the book, I can see where some people might be disappointed it s not Holes However, I found Sachar s ability to weave several stories together to be captivating His strength of creating acting true to who they are characters is on display as Theodore finds himself interacting with diverse characters.The book h [...]


  • 3.5 I enjoyed Holes so I thought I d read another from this author I was not disappointed This was a surprisingly gripping story An off shoot from a couple of the characters in Holes, Armpit and X ray return in this novel Armpit putting to work what his counselor had advised him to do take small steps, hence he set 5 goals for himself graduate from high school, get a job, save his money, avoid situations that might turn violent, and lose the name Armpit X ray of course had to jiggle those goals [...]


  • I thought that this book was sorta weird compared to holes it was less exciting I didn t really get the same feeling as I did in holes I got hooked to holes but I am not saying I hated it I am just saying that the book had no connection to holes There are 4 main characters in the story Armpit, X Ray, Ginny, and Kaira Deleon The book has a way of wanting me to keep reading even though I thought it was boring I think it s because the characters that are form holes Armpit X Ray you want to know if [...]


  • Take Armpit, X Ray, a teen star and a little girl called Ginny Add a well meaning mayor, parents who don t understand, other parents who do, and one who doesn t even want to Mix in some ticket scalpers for the teen star s concert plus some impossible coincidences that just have to be the way they are because that s how the magic of Sachar s stories works And rest assured it does work, beautifully, un put down ably and, just like Holes, delightfully memorably too.


  • Uhhh 4.5 5 I dunno This book is like really good and the ending was like waaayyy too sudden and it was like WOOOOAAAHH And the ending was really sweet but not sweet enough to make me cry I love how the main character changed and it s all about Armpit now instead of that other guy Uuuhh yea You should read this book, I guess I recommend to 5 9


  • I loved Holes so I was happy to find this book with some of the same characters And I have to say right off that Louis Sachar should write song lyrics The ones in his book were really good Maybe Lady Gaga could hire him because whoever she has doing that job keeps coming up with stuff like, Tonight, yeah baby, tonight.But I digress.Anyway, I liked the book In a couple of places I wanted to yell out instructions to the main character.My only complaint was the ending I wanted of a romance and was [...]


  • I ll admit, I was well over halfway through this book and wasn t sure I was I was going to like it at all I felt like I was missing the point But then I read the last fifty or so pages today, and felt glad that even though than ten years had gone by since its release, I finally read SMALL STEPS, and it was worth it.




  • Second in the Holes realistic fiction series and revolving around Theodore Johnson we knew him as Armpit It s been two years since Holes, 1.In 2007, Small Steps won the Schneider Family Book Award for Teen Book.My TakeThis ll get your dander up when you read how Armpit was railroaded Where the heck is justice in this world I will say Sachar went off in an unexpected direction, and I m loving it It s so positive and upbeat, in spite of the setbacks Instead it s an opportunity for Theodore to grow [...]


  • I really liked this when I first read it but there is some language in this I enjoyed the representation of the main character and someone with cerebral palsy not looked at as less.But I don t ever plan on re reading because of the language and I don t recommend for younger then 13 for some other parts of the story As always it can very for each kid, I read it very young But I don t think it would be good for most people at the age it was ok for me not the language but it is so overly used but I [...]


  • Holes has a sequel This was the story of one of the boys from Camp Green Lake and him trying to get his life back in order in Austin, Texas This was a good story and I love how LS ties stuff together, but this one had a lot mature elements than Holes The Austin elements were fun There was a lot about race that could lead to good discussions It quickly morphed from a story about a teen and friendship and choices to a love story to a mystery and then leaves a nice open ending.


  • She said his life would be like walking upstream in a rushing river The secret was to take small steps and just keep moving forward This book is a good sequel to Holes and shows life after Camp Green Lake It s an easy read but the ending was a bit anti climactic compared to only a few chapters earlier It s like Sachar set some goals for himself writing this book.1 Have a cute friendship2 Keep them digging3 Lose the name Armpit


  • Not as good as Holes but still a good read My 10 year old liked it too Some good lessons about the choices we make to make in life.


  • A sequel to the beloved book Holes, Small Steps follows Armpit and X ray during life after Camp Green Lake Armpit is trying to create a stable life for himself by going to high school and working construction He knows that when X ray shows up with an invitation for some quick money, he was in trouble What follows leads to Armpit meeting an up and coming pop star and a little bit of romance If you want to know if Armpit and X ray get caught, or if Armpit falls in love, read Small Steps to find ou [...]


  • Probably 3.5 Theodore Johnson better known by most as Armpit has returned home from Camp Green Lake and is trying to turn his life around Summer school, a good job digging holes , and an unlikely friendship with his precocious ten year old neighbor Ginny who happens to have been born with cerebral palsy seem to be pointing him in a positive direction, even if his parents don t seem to trust that he s doing his best to improve his situation and his prospects When his old Camp Green Lake buddy X R [...]


  • Small Steps By Louis SacharPersonal Response I really liked this book I was a really big fan of the first book, Holes, and loved to read a sequel.Plot This is a sequel to the book Holes The book starts out with a young African American teen that has a job digging holes This is a good job for him because he dug a lot of holes at Camp Green Lake Correctional Facility His name is Theodore Johnson or Armpit He used to be overweight but the job has helped him lose a lot of weight His life was getting [...]

  • Sequel to Holes, read aloud with Hinton It focuses on a couple of the minor characters in Holes after they leave Camp Green Lake Unlike most books I read with him, this one I had never read before We both totally enjoyed it There were a couple nights I was tempted to read ahead after he went to bed because I wanted to know what was going to happen


  • Sachar is a good writer, regardless of the style or level of writing geared to Young Adults as the 10 to 15 year old tweeners that libraries aim his books toward are known He succeeds at least as well as I can tell being a 48 year old father of three kids who went through that stage a few years back at hitting the sweet spot of that market with smart, funny, insightful, writing that makes good reading even for adults.This is a followup to his smash title Holes, which I also read and reviewed and [...]


  • Small Steps is the sequel to Holes Both books were extraordinarily good Small Steps is the continuation of Holes, but it s not told from Stanley s point of view any Stanley went home and lives a normal life, but the story is now focused on Armpit s life Armpit was another person in Camp Greenlake, he and Stanley were friends His life after Camp Greenlake is told through this book, and it is extremely interesting It s such a great book, I believe that if you have read Holes then you should defini [...]
