    This book is a true story of how Peg Kehret lived with polio for a portion of her life. As you go through the adventures of dorm number 96 you will laugh as well as cry and will have the time of your life. I feel that this is one of the books you will ever read. Hot packs, mean nurses and so much joy.....Rolled into one!!!

          Small steps is a narrative nonfiction book. It tells you to never give up and keep fighting. Will peg walk again? Will the kids make fun of her at school?

                I really liked this book because it told us that Peg was going through some problems and she never gave up on her dreams. She was fighting through her problems and never gave up.
