really liked it

Stanley Yelnats is sent to an all-boys correctional camp called Camp Green Lake after he is accused of committing a crime which he did not commit. There, boys are ordered to dig holes all day under the scorching heat with a fixed provision of water. Their conditions at the camp are clearly not as well as anyone would hope.

It appears that the "camp counselors" order the boys to dig holes because they are in search of something wonderful that they believe is hidden beneath the earth's crust in that area. And the people Stanley meets as he spends his time at the camp are all very unique.

Holes is another book in which the characters (each and everyone) captivates me because they all play a special part that makes the story more and more interesting. This books really challenged me because it pushed me to make connections throughout so that the story would make more sense. At the same time, it was a fairly light read. I would recommend this book to all!
