Reading - Holes

Holes by Louis Sachar
Stanley Yelnat'sfamily has a history of bad luch, so he isn't too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a boys' juvenile detention center, Camp Green Lake.  But there is no lake -  it has been dry for over a hundred years - and it's hardly a camp: as punishment, the boys must each dig a hole a day, five feet deep, five feet across, in the hard earth of the dried-up lake bed.  The warden claims that this pointless labor builds character, nut this's a lie.  Stanley must try to dig up the truth.
