Book Recommendation: Holes By Louis Sachar
Holes is a book by Louis Sachar, in which different timelines and stories intermingle, but all of them come together as one. It is a book about teenagers in trouble, but also about old times, love, racial relationships, greed... This is the plot:
Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he is not too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre. Nor is he very surprised when he is told that his daily labour at the camp is to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, and report anything that he finds in that hole. The warden claims that it is character building, but this is a lie and Stanley must dig up the truth.
