Holes by Louis Sachar

Holes by Louis Sachar is a book about teamwork that you can't stop reading. It’s about a boy who goes to a prison camp. Stanley, the main character is forced to dig holes from early in the morning to the hottest part of the day, even though he swears he is innocent of the crime they charged him with. It's hard for him to fit in since he is fatter than the others, so he works slower and has to work very hard to keep up. He grows tougher over time, loses weight, and gets faster and he’s able to do things that he wouldn’t have when he first got to camp.
I really like this book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a book about trying your best to complete your goals. My favorite thing about the book is how Stanley works very hard to keep up with the others and he ends up accomplishing goals that he didn’t even know were possible for him. This book reminds me a lot of people who have difficulties doing certain things or completing their goals. But if you try really hard you will complete anything you want. So why don't you read Holes I bet you’ll really like it.

Holes, by Louis Sachar is a wonderful book!  It’s about a little boy named Stanley Yelnats.  Stanley’s family has bad luck. One day Stanley does something bad and he gets sent to camp.  It’s not an ordinary camp though.  They dig holes that are 5 foot by 5 foot deep.   At camp he tries to run away with his new friend that he met at camp.  The Warden does not like him and his friends are there too! At camp there was a car crash involved and more funny things.  It might be funny now but when the Warden comes around and finds out you will be praying for Stanley and his friends.  There are chapters where you want to cry, laugh, or even be scared for Stanley and his friends.  Over all this is a great book.  Read to find out what chapters are sad, scary, or funny.  I dare you not to laugh, or be frightened.
