As somebody from Texas, this was one of my all time favorite books, and the film adaptation was subsequently added to my list of favorite movies. The story follows an inherently unlucky teenage boy named Stanley who is sent to a juvenile labor camp, where he discovers a mystery that eventually leads to him uncovering a hidden truth that connects him and a fellow camper’s ancestral destinies.

This is about a boy named Stanley Yelnats whose family has a curse that followed him into getting trouble by the law for something he didn't do. Then, he gets sent to a camp for boys who are juveniles called Camp Green Lake and Stanley doesn't really fit in. For every day of every boy, they have to dig big holes for their "punishment" for them to learn what they have done wrong before coming here. However, Stanley and the other boys are digging to find valuable things for the head of Camp Green Lake. But, there are things that Stanley finds out and meets especially a key character Zero who he teaches how to read. This book is a good book for young teens to read and understand what this story is about. I loved that the book does reflect the movie that they made. Also, this taught me to not do horrible things in life that would get me in trouble and to have others be there for me when I need help. ( )

This book has a story within a story, along with nail biting challenges personally and within life. It is a fun read for students and adults.

Stanley Yelnats is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention camp, for a crime he did not commit. Everyday the boys at the camp have to build five feet wide and five feet deep holes in the desert, where an old lake was. Stanley realizes that the boys are digging holes for a reason and sets out to find out why they are digging. There are flash backs to the past they help the reader figure out what is happening in the book. ( )

This book is amazing. The movie too. It's fun, exciting, and the pace of the book is steady/ fast. Stanley has "bad luck" if you believe in luck. But his family is always misfortuned from his dad's job to Stanley ending up in a boys' juvenile detention center.

I absolutely loved it. The plot twists were great and the storyline is so unique! I highly recommend reading this book! Watch the movie too! ( )
