Stanley Yelnats isn't so surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a juvenile detention center. After all, his family has been ridden with bad luck ever since a one-legged gypsy put a curse on his great-great grandfather. He is told that the hard labor he must perform, digging five-foot holes in the dried up soil where Green Lake once sat, is meant to build character. But it soon becomes clear to Stanley that the warden is really using the boys to search for something very valuable. The story of the hidden treasure, along with the warden, Stanley's friend Zero, and the curse on the Yelnats family are all part of a compelling puzzle that has taken generations to unravel.

Holes is the 1999 Newbery Medal winner for most distinguished American children's book.

    " Holes is a really good book. It is about a boy, who's under a curse, and he's stuck for 18 months at Camp Green Lake, a camp for naughty boys. I think this book teaches you mostly about persistence and it has got a Newberry Award. I recommend it for kids and adults. "
