Book Review-Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio by Peg Kehret


It was the day of the homecoming parade. My friends and I made a float to enter into the contest. I knew that nothing would get in the way of me going. And then I collapsed. When I woke up I was at home. My mom walked into the room. Took my temperature and told me I had a fever. I was going to have to have to miss the parade and take a trip to the doctor. The doctor drew some blood and gave me the worst news of my life. I had Polio! Polio is a disease that has no cure. I was paralyzed from the neck down. I was put thorough a series of treatments. Read the book to hear more of the most dreadful time of my life.

I usually dont like biographies because sometimes they are boring but Small Steps is really good because it makes you thankfull that you dont have to be in a hospitil during christmas,Halloween,and Thanksgiving.

I got the book a year or two ago and within the firs week I'd read the book 4 or 5 times! Hats off to Jonas Salk!
