Stanley Yelnats thinks that he is under a curse placed by his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. Because of this “curse” Stanley is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Because he is overweight, he gets bullied. And when he finds some old smelly sneakers on the freeway he does not realize that they are the sneakers of a famous baseball player. So Stanley gets arrested and gets sent to a boys detention center called Camp Green Lake. The Warden at Camp Green Lake thinks that digging a hole 5ft deep and 5ft wide builds character. So each boy at Camp Green Lake has to dig a hole 5ft deep and 5ft wide. The Warden says that the kids are digging to build character but Stanley thinks that is something else.
Stanley thinks that Camp Gr een Lake is not what it seems to be. Can Stanley figure out the mystery of Camp Green Lake before someone gets hurt?
Holes is so funny!!!! There are some flashbacks into the past and the past is a romance that can never be. It can be really sad at times but that is why I consider a modern classic. Everyone should read it. Sadly the romance parts are not cheesy romance but classic romance. Sorry Book Princess. So the book starts off slow but gets better as it goes along. Right now I am painting my nails green instead of red like the Warden’s nails. But it is the thought that counts. I really enjoyed Holes. Five Stars. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!!! -annaleeliz and Buttons
