Holes by Louis Sachar

Holes by Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnat's family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he is not surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Detention Centre. Nor is he very surprised when he is told that his daily labour is to dig a hole and report anything that he finds inside. The evil warden has her own reasons for inflicting such punishment while she insists the labour is a character building process for Stanley and the others. At least Stanley makes good friends there and he gains the confidence to plan his escape.

Several storylines are cleverly wound together to produce a truly memorable read with quite a lot of humour in a setting, that is anything but humourous.
