            I love this book! Holes is such a good book! A boy named Stanley Yelnats (his last name is “Stanley” spelled backwards) is sent to Camp Green Lake, which is basically the complete opposite from its name. Every day, Stanley would go digging because the Warden wanted all the boys to “build character.” If anyone found something interesting while digging, they would give it to the Warden and get a day off from digging the next day. When one of Stanley’s friends find something, the Warden tells everyone to move to the location Stanley’s friend found it. Could the Warden be making the boys dig for something for a reason? This book is really interesting, and I recommend watching the movie too! ❤️❤️❤️

                A funny and thoughtful books yet there is always suspense around the corner. An perfect example of irony. A good book for grades 5 and over.

                  What an amazing book! I bet this book will be a bestseller! Stanley Yelnats is sentenced to dig holes at Camp Green Lake detention centre for stealing a pair of trainers. Stanley's quest to discover what he is digging for leads to danger and adventure and to a confrontation with his family's past. (Sadly, Stanley technically did steal, but he didn't. He picked them up after they fell from the sky...)
