Small Steps

by Louis Sachar

Small Steps Synopsis

Armpit and X-Ray are living in Austin, Texas. It is three years since they left the confines of Camp Green Lake Detention Centre and Armpit is taking small steps to turn his life around. He is working for a landscape gardener because he is good at digging holes, he is going to school and he is enjoying his first proper romance, but is he going to be able to stay out of trouble when there is so much building up against him? In this exciting novel, Armpit is joined by many vibrant new characters, and is learning what it takes to stay on course, and that doing the right thing is never the wrong choice.

Bookseller Children's Buyers Guide 'A pacy adventure, which leaves you cheering Armpit all the way to the finish line.' Good Book Guide 'Has a lot to recommend it - funny dialogue, a fast-moving story, some emotive scenes, an interesting central character.' Guardian
