Holes is an exciting, yet adventurous book that will take you away. The book is about a boy named Stanley, who has the family curse and somehow is framed stealing shoes from a famous basketball player. Stanley is given the choice to either attend Camp Green Lake or Juvenile Hall. He chooses Camp Green Lake and is forced to dig holes all day in the sun. Stanley learns to get along with the other kids and cooperate with them. He later learns the secret of why they are forced to dig holes. Throughout the rest of the book Stanley tries to solve the rest of the surprising puzzle. Holes may be recommended all young adults that like any type of book.
