Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author Peg Kehret has written the true story of the year when she was twelve and stricken with polio. At first paralyzed and terrified, she fought her way to recovery, aided by doctors and therapists, a loving family, supportive roommates fighting their own battles with the disease, and plenty of grit and luck. With the humor and suspense that are her trademarks, Peg Kehret vividly recreates a year of heartbreak and triumph.

Wonderful story for modern kids (and adults)

What made the experience of listening to Small Steps the most enjoyable?

This story gives the listener a step into the personal journey of a young person's struggle through isolation, disease and debilitation that could have been life long without good care and personal striving. I didn't expect my kids to like it because it is not a "fun" story - but they were captivated by excellent story telling. I believe we were all enriched to have our own struggles put into perspective and by having the opportunity to empathize with and cheer on this young lady as she made her way through polio. (My sons, 13 & 8, were not put off by it being a female character.)

Great book

The book was a good combination of knowledge of polio and a sweet story of learning to deal with a sickness.
