In the novel Holes by Louis Sachar, Stanley Yelnats is a teenage boy who was punished for a crime he didn’t commit. For his punishment, he was sent to Camp Green Lake, a reform camp. Stanley finds out there might be buried treasure in the dried up lake. Stanley’s only friend is Zero; they face many dangers together. One of Stanley’s main problems is one of the counselors, Mr. Sir, who is very mean and stern.
I loved Holes. Whenever I started reading it, I could not stop. My favorite thing about Holes is the mystery and the cliffhangers.
People who like mystery and cliffhangers will enjoy this book. I recommend it for ages 9-12 because there is a little violence, but it is an easier book than it seems.
