Max Koebel on 11/4/2016 7:25:15 PM says: I loved it. I'm not a huge fan of memoirs, but Small Steps is by for my favorite memoir, and one of my all time favorite books. The way Peg described all the details, I actually felt what she was feeling in the book! Small Steps is the only book by Peg Kehret that I've read. But I am still very inspired by her as a writer, which is what I want to be when I grow up. My dream is to meet someone famous, and if I got to choose which famous person I would get to meet, I would choose Peg Kehret.
