“Louis Sachar is magic to the toughest circle of critics: librarians, children’s booksellers, teachers–and, most of all, kids.” –USA Today
“Mr. Sachar's gentle but surefire approach nails down challenging issues such as racism, teen romance and drugs.”–Dallas Morning News
“Part of what makes Small Steps so believable and appealing is that its characters do have insecurities, and they aren’t ashamed to let them show.” –BookPage
“Sachar is a master storyteller who creates memorable characters.” –School Library Journal
“Cleverly wrought…heartwarming, witty and suspenseful.” –Time Out New York Kids
“Sachar has a talent for creating realistic relationships between unlikely friends. Although that's a staple device of children's literature, it often works by drawing on clichés. Sachar's characters, though, are never stereotypes, but always vividly alive.”–Los Angeles Times
“His prose is clear and relaxed, and funny in a low-key, observant way.”–New York Times

I thought the whole story was sort of odd, unimaginative and amateurish. It didn't even seem like it was by the same person who wrote Holes. There's a clunky romance in which a teen singing star inexplicably falls for Armpit after meeting him twice. [Spoiler Alert] This leads to Armpit traveling to visit her which culminates in a shockingly violent and bizarre turn in the story where she is beaten with a bat by her stepfather!!
I would also agree with other reviewers who mentioned inappropriate language and content. I'm no prude but, I would not consider this book appropriate for middle-schoolers at all.
