Holes – Louis Sachar

I’m not sure why I waited so long to read this modern classic. I actually remember when this book came out, I would have been the perfect age to read it then, about 11 and a friend even recommended it to me, but it just hadn’t caught my interest at the time. This story is about a a young boy who’s family is cursed with bad luck, and through this our hero Stanley is sent to Camp Green Lake to dig holes in a rehabilitation program for a crime he didn’t commit, but things aren’t as they seem at the camp. All the boys at the camp are digging 5×5 foot holes, but why?  This was a great read and I enjoyed the untangling of the story, Stanley doesn’t make all the right choices, but he certainly owns up to the ones he’s made which really made this story stand out.
