Product Description

Upon returning to Austin, Armpit set five goals for himself. Five small steps. 1) Graduate High School. 2) Get a job. 3) Save money. 4) Avoid situations that might turn violent. 5) Lose the name Armpit.

Louis Sachar delivers another shock twist: a book just as good as Holes! Bad-boy Armpit, a teenage singing star and a killer. A story to die for. Camp Green Lake’s notorious former inmate, Armpit, is finally making small steps towards change. He’s got a job, a savings account and a new best friend. Until he runs into X-Ray and a ticket scam. And gets involved with America’s starriest teenage songstress – and a murderer. Has he just dug himself a new hole? Don’t miss Armpit’s hilarious and moving story: the long-awaited sequel to Holes.

    This is the sequel to holes. It is kind of for teenagers I think because it involves a bit of violence, love nad band gigs. It is OK. I liked Holes better.

    I only read this because it was a sequel to Holes, its really good because its about the life of a side character from Holes, its really funny and imaginative too.

    A brilliant book, it made me laugh till I cried. Lots of fun to read. It’s all about Armpit his good friend X-ray,singing,ticket-scalping and lots and lots of trouble.

    I loved this book because it could actually happen in real life and it was so easy to relate to. Some of it was quite funny especially his name and how he got it .
