Small Steps

Small Steps by Louis Sachar

While not as artful as Holes, at least on first reading, this continuation of Armpit's story after he leaves Camp Green Lake and heads home to a dingy duplex in Austin, TX is worth reading for both teens and adults. Armpit (or Theodore, is he would like to be known now) lives in a very modern world of racism, hard work, temptation, prejudice, suspicious parents, and occasional lucky breaks. He wants to stay out of trouble, so he plans to follow his counselor's advice and taking small steps to just keep moving forward.

I checked it out. 257 pgs.
