Holes There was a boy named Stanley Yelnats , who was arrested and sent to Camp Green Lake. The warden told Stanley and his friends to dig holes under the dried-up Lake because she is looking for the suitcase in which there are jewels and valuable paper that belonged to the first Stanley Yelnats . The boys found the suitcase in a hole full of lizards. Finally, Stanley tried very hard to climb out of the hole and succeeded. Opinion : I chose this book because I like how Stanley persevered in digging holes.
