The book Holes is about Stanley being wrongly accused of stealing a famous athlete's shoes. The judge gives his mother to decide between going to Camp Green lake and jail, and she decides to go to Camp Green Lake, but there is actually a lot more behind Camp Green Lake.

This is an excellent book. It is about a boy named Stanley Yelnats getting sent to a camp for juvenile boys for a crime he didn't commit. Every day at camp, he has to dig a hole 5 feet deep, 5 feet wide. Their is a mystery at Camp Greenlake and its up to Stanley to solve it.

one of my favorite books ever. I read it in fifth grade 3 years ago and I remember every detail of it. very memorable

This was probably one of the best books I ever read. My teacher assigned it for us to read it. I thought it would be boring nut it was really interesting!

Holes by Louis Sachar The main character is Stanley Yelnats the 3rd. He gets caught stealing Clyde Livingston’s baseball shoes. He could either go to jail or dig holes at the camp green lake for 16 months 5 feet wide 5 feet down the length of your shovel except for x-ray his shovel is 4 feet. He was always the last one done he was caught stealing Mr. Sir’s sunflower seeds he took him to the person who owned the lake. She asked Stanley to get her viper nail polish she put some on her nails and scratched Mr. Sir she told Stanley to go dig her hole. Stanley found a nail polish bottle that had KB on it. I would recommend this to a fiction person

I'm reading it right now, and so far, it is pretty good. I will update you when I get finished with the book for my full results. I have to do a book report on it, so that will be in a few days/weeks. Stay tuned on DOGOnews! (I sound like a reporter in that)

I read this book for a book report and loved it!

Stanley Yelnats is always in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it's all thanks to his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. When a pair of shoes inexplicably fall on Stanley's head, it's the last straw: it turns out that they belong to the famous baseball player Clyde Livingston, who had donated them to the orphanage to be auctioned. In court, Stanley's "they fell out of the sky" reason sounds pretty lame to his own ears, and it does to the court judge, too. He gives Stanley and his parents a choice. Either Stanley serves time or he goes to Camp Green Lake. Stanley was never rich enough to go to camp, so of course, he picks CGL, but it turns out to be beyond his wildest dreams - in the worst way possible. Barely any water, scorching conditions, hostile campmates, selfish camp directors, and having to dig a six-by-six foot hole every day is nothing like the camps Stanley has heard of. But when a miraculous encounter with Zero, a fellow camper, shows that their family lines may have crossed before, Stanley's wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time curse has a chance to be lifted.

This book is about a kid named Stanley Yelnats who is accused of a crime he did not do. He is sent to a camp called "Camp Green Lake" (there is no lake) where kids dig holes to find a treasure. I liked the book and would recommend for a read with its action at moments, suspense, and it's plot in general. It was good but the background is a little vauge on what happened.
