Holes by Louis Sachar


Book Blurb:

Stanley Yelnat’s family has had 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.

So did I like it (by A aged 10)?

Yes, but it’s not one of my favourites (I read a lot of books so I’m not saying it’s bad!) It’s not that hard to read though and it’s not the sort of book where you read the start and then stop and read another book instead. It is full of suspense and has some twists. Read it if you have nothing else to read. It’s not the sort of book that you read lots of times, so it’s best to get it from your library instead of buying it.

If you liked this you might like…

Hmm, I’m not sure.  I’ll get back to you!
