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.

This story is about a boy named Stanley Yelnats, who is convicted of a crime he didn't commit. He is sent to Camp Green Lake (ironic because there is no lake), and he is forced to dig holes every day. In my opinion, I wasn't a fan of this book because I thought the book had a vague plot. The climax happened a little too late and it wasn't the kind I expected. The willpower of Stanley is not what I expected. He's got too much to deal with, like the bullies at school, teachers, and now ending up in a camp that is an equivalent to jail. He doesn't speak up enough. I did like the backstories and how they tied to each of the characters. After all, I'm going to have to rate this 3 stars. Don't take my word for it. Go read Holes and see how you like it.

In my opinion, this book was very good. Stanley Yelnats was a an poor high school boy. One day a famous sports players sneakers fell from the sky into Stanley's arms. The cops then came and arrested him for theft. Little did they know, Stanley didn't steal the sneakers. Stanley was then sent to a place called Camp Green lake to fulfill his sentence. The prisoners must dig holes to find a lost treasure. Stanley finds out that the treasure belongs to him. Stanley then takes his treasure (A lot of money,) and he becomes wealthy. I can relate to this story because I have had hard time just like Stanley. I am rating this book five stars because it really explains Stanley's life perfectly.

In my opinion, I really liked this book. One reason why is that it was descriptive. Another reason why is at one spot it got really suspenseful. The last reason why is near the middle it got really interesting . My favorite part is when the author wrote down that the holes that they are digging is 5 ft deep and 5 ft wide. You might like this book if you like mystery and suspenseful. You should read this book because it is a really good

This book is about this character digging a hole. Instead of going to jail, he went to a desert and he have to dig a hole that is 5 feet deep. I feel really bad for the character. I really like this book and you should read it. Also, my school recommend this book so yeah. Bye. Nope you enjoy this book.

holes holes

it is a good movie and a book but i think it has some cursing

This book was awesome. "Holes" is an awesome book with thrilling suspense and also some heart. This book is an awesome story of friendship and fun. I would recommend this book to most people.

The unlucky Stanley Yelnats is “always in the wrong place at the wrong time”, and it’s this that ends him up at a correction facility, “Camp Green Lake”, except it’s not much of a camp, and not at all a green lake. He meets a few others, including a kid who he’d never realized that he’d grow close to. “Holes” is an exceptionally good read, showing the day-by-day struggles of an innocent boy that just wants FREEDOM!
