This is my favorite book of all those boring books that I read so far. Even though I have to flip back to pages to remind myself I have read because the author had written the book in a complicated form. For example, the author wrote Stanley Yelnets’s story in a chapter, and someone else’s the next. Then, the author combines all the stories at the end. This story is about Stanley IV in Camp Green Lake, where he has to dig holes as punishment for stealing a pair of shoes which he didn’t steal. Camp Green Lake was located in the middle of a desert. Zero and he became good friends. Because Zero escaped, Stanley went out and looked for him. They survived and found a suitcase with the treasure. That is the reason why the camp made the boys to dig holes. Zero found his mother. Stanley and Zero got rich because of the treasure. The other story is about a white woman falling in love with an African American man. People were against their relationship because it happened about a hundred years ago and place was in the South with racist people. The woman was angry because people killed the man she loved. So she started killing the men she kissed. I felt very sorry for the couple who are in love, if I were her, I wouldn’t even know what to do. What if the couple wasn’t in the South or everything didn’t happen back then. I think the stories are really interesting to me and made read again and again. I love this book because it makes me want to read more and more. I wish the author would add more things at the end.

message 1: by Jorge (new) - added it

Jorge Hernandez I also agree with the changes in the story it also got me confused but it was still a good book. Also i agree that the author should have added a little more at the end but maybe thats what he wanted to do but who knows.
Good comment.
