About Holes

Stanley Yelnats has been unfairly sent to a boys' detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the kids spend all day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. Soon Stanley realizes that there might be more to these holes than meets the eye... He tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and strangely humorous tale of crime and punishment - and redemption. Recommended for 5th grade and up.
