Small Steps: the year i got polio Houghton Mifflin,1996,174 pp.,$6.99
ISBN 0-618-06274-2

“Your daughter has polio.”
Those were the four words that Peg and her parents never expected. After that it all got worse.
peg got sick and confined from her parents. She was stuck in a room with no one at all.
When she moved to the Sheltering Arms polio care center she hated it immediately.
She stops getting to see her parents. Over a short period of time she reaches a point where they cant take care of her anymore. Getting moved meant she was getting better but it didn't feel like it to her. In the new hospital she has three roommates. They become her best friends.
This book takes you on an emotional journey. The way the story is told you feel like you are going through it with her. I never wanted to put this book down. This is one of my favorite books, it teaches you to be strong with courage. I have read this book four times, and each time i read it, i feel like i have never read it. This book is great for teens because it inspires kids to have courage.
