Holes is about a kid named Stanley. His family was very poor. A random kid saw the shoes were stolen, and thought it was Stanley, so he had a choice between going to jail or Camp Greenlake. He chose Camp Greenlake. It's called Holes because at the camp every day you have to dig a five foot deep and also five foot wide hole.
I chose it because it had an interesting story. For example: near the end, lots of deadly lizards were surrounding and on top of the kids, Zero and Stanley.
In conclusion, the book was a big adventure. I think you should read it, too.
