Small Steps

by Louis Sachar
£6.99   paperback  Bloomsbury (2007)

Small Steps by Louis Sachar Upon returning from Austin, Armpit set five goals for himself. Five small steps.
 
1. Graduate High School.
2. Get a job.
3. Save his money.
4. Avoid situations that might turn violent. And...
5. Lose the name Armpit.
 
In this wonderful, funny, and deeply satisfying novel by master storyteller Louis Sachar, Armpit finds all his small steps becoming much bigger than he had anticipated. When he gets mixed up with his old friend X-ray in a ticket seam, things look set to unravel. But this is only the beginning of Armpit's troubles in a brilliant, fast-paced adventure story.

"Louis Sachar has again managed to write a humorous novel which also deals with issues such as disability and race. The moral of the story is delivered with the lightest touch."
