Product Description:

Two years after being released from Camp Green Lake, Armpit is home in Austin, Texas, trying to turn his life around. But it's hard when you have a record, and everyone expects the worst from you.

The only person who believes in him is Ginny, his ten-year-old disabled neighbor. Together, they are learning to take small steps.

And he seems to be on the right path, until X-Ray, a buddy from Camp Green Lake, comes up with a get-rich-quick scheme. This leads to a chance encounter with teen pop sensation, Kaira DeLeon, and suddenly his life spins out of control, with only one thing for certain: he'll never be the same again!

In his first major novel since Holes, critically-acclaimed novelist Louis Sachar uses his signature wit, combined with a unique blend of adventure and deeply-felt characters, to explore issues of race, the nature of celebrity, the invisible connections that determine a person's life, and what it takes to stay on course. Doing the right thing is never a wrong choice - but a small step in the right direction.

For ages 10 to 14.

Package Weight: about 5.2 pounds.
