  • HOLES is better Oct 6, 2014
    by Tarissa

    Small Steps is the sequel to the award-winning book, Holes. How was life for Armpit and X-Ray after their term at Camp Greenlake?

    Armpit is back home in Austin with his mother, after his release from the camp. He's trying to keep himself busy and stay out of trouble now. X-Ray is making things hard on Armpit with ticket-scalping/get-rich ideas that could eventually land them in trouble.

    There is, shall I say, a "huge step" between Holes and Small Steps. Particularly, I am referring to the suggested age for kids reading these books. Holes was great for middle-graders, but Small Steps has more mature themes and additional language that the first book didn't contain. Personally, I don't really recommend reading Small Steps for the reasons I've just mentioned. Regardless, the sequel may or may not be suited for the same kids who just finished reading Holes.
