Holes

Written by Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnats has terrible luck because of a curse traced back to his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. After being unjustly convicted of stealing a pair of athletic shoes, he is sent to a detention center, Camp Green Lake. The boys are forced to dig holes to build character, but Stanley realizes they are searching for something underground. He sets out to find out more.
