The book Holes by Louis Sachar is an amazing book that takes you to Camp Green Lake in Texas. The main characters are Stanley and Zero and they show good teamwork. The setting is in the middle of nowhere. It used to be a lake but it is a piece of dried up land. No one knows what is going to happen to Stanley. The readers follow Stanley through Camp Green Lake. But he does something you will never expect. Sachar is the writer that makes you think that you are in the book. Also, it makes you look at the story in a different way. “The lizards have eleven yellow spots, which are hard to see on their yellow-green body. They have black teeth, and white tongues.” That is the writing style that Sachar does and it is amazing. It makes you see what really happens in detention centers. Also, it is cool to see how much people can care for each other. Holes won the Newberry Award in 1999. Which is a very hard award to win.
