              This is such a great book! It has such a great plot twist toward the end of the book that you would never expect. The book has a happy ending. Although i do recommend ages 13 and up to read this book because you rally have to understand it to be interested in this book. It can come off boring to some people but i personally loved it!

                    This book is very well written. The book starts off a little slow but gets faster and faster. The book is very thrilling and it will leave you thinking: "what will happen next?" The book is very good.

                      Stanley Yelnats is useless. He's overweight and a social outcast. Then Stanley is accused and convicted of a crime he didn't commit. Stanley is sent to Camp Green Lake, the dryest, dustiest, and least green place in the world. It toughens him up, both physically and mentally. Stanley and his friend Zero fight against the corrupt leadership. The book had such a unique writing style. I would recommend it to anyone.
