Dads ‘N’ Lads

Holes by Louis Sachar
Published by Bloomsbury, 2000

Stanley Yelnats’ family has a history of bad luck, so he isn’t too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a boys’ juvenile detention centre. At Camp Green Lake the boys must dig a hole a day, five feet deep, five feet across, in the dried up lake bed. The warden claims the labour is character building, but it is a lie. Stanley must dig up the truth.

‘This is a story of friendship with the cleverest of plot twists, and descriptions so vivid you can feel the heat of Stanley’s desert prison burning off the page. A total must-read’ The Times.
