    Holes is a book about a boy, Stanley Yelnats, that is sentenced to dig holes, at Camp green lake. Stanley is only sentenced there for something he didn't do! Stanley plans his escape very wisly and it works out. Of course he didn't do it by himself, he made a few friends on the way of the escape. One of the friends is Zero, a boy that Stanley taught how to read. In return Zero an Stanley make a run for it. In the end Camp green lake gets shut down for child labor. Everyone in Camp green lake is realized and sent back home. My opinion on this book and even the movie is 5 Stars. One of the best books I have ever read in a while. I recommend this book to people that like adventure stories as well as action. Have you ever felt like throwing up because you havent eaten or had a drink of water for more than 24 hours, well Stanley and Zero felt like that when they made a run for it. Hope you read "Holes" and enjoy it!!

      Holes Is a book with two kids named Zero and Stanley. Zero and Stanley went to a camp called Camp Green Lake. One day Stanley helped Zero how to learn and spell his name (“Capital Z-e-r-o”). Stanly showed zero how to spell his name so, when Zero needed to write his name he would no how to. Another day the boys had to dig holes and Stanley found a golden tube, he told Zero. Zero thought they could use it to get out of school. If you ever read the book Holes or watch the movie you will also hear the names, Zig-Zag, Hector, the Warden, Mr. Sir, Sweet Feet, and X-Ray.

                    I can tell by the cover of the book that "Holes" is good because it is a gold medal book. I want to read because everyone says it is a great book. I have seen the movie and it was amazing. I can't wait to read this book.
