Holes by Louis Sachar

Holes by Louis Sachar -- 272

Stanley Yelnats was accused of stealing a pair of tennis shoes and now he is going to boy's detention camp where digging holes is supposed to build character. He blames his bad luck on his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather who stole a pig and cursed his family with bad luck.

So here at Camp Green Lake Stanley is digging holes and told to report anything interesting. Soon he begins to realize that they are not digging holes just to build character, but that the administrator is looking for something, something she will do anything to have, and it just might have to do with the outlaw Kissing Kate Barlow. Stanley is ready to solve the mystery.

Holes is an exciting and suspenseful book, as well as funny. The writing style is gripping and doesn't drag at all, so it makes for a good juvenile fiction book.
