Like, really. Who comes up with this kind of stuff? Stanley Yelnats is a fat kid surviving adolescence with an ancient family curse hanging over his head (fault of his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather). When unjustly convicted of stealing a pair of shoes, he is sent Camp Green Lake, an institution designed to turn bad boys into good boys by digging holes all day in a dried-up lake. The fun doesn’t stop there, however; this “lake” includes rattle snakes (you usually won’t die if bitten), saucy red-headed wardens, a secret treasure hunt, and most especially yellow-spotted lizards (you will always die if bitten). It’s a timeless adventure for all ages.
