Holes

Author: Louis Sachar
Reviewer's Age: Grade 8

This touching yet hilarious tale follows Stanley Yelnats at a juvenile detention camp for a crime he didn't commit. Each day, the boys must dig a hole five feet wide and five feet deep. The counselors say it builds character, but Stanley and his friend Zero find otherwise. There is also a story of the past which connects with the present tale in many ways. This book is a page-turner, but still has the charm of Louis Sachar's other tales.
