1999 Newbery Medal winner.
Stanley's family neer has any luck, and they jokingly blame it on his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather. Accused and convicted of a crime he did not commit, Stanley Yelnats is sentenced and sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention camp. But there is no lake at Camp Green Lake; only a dried-up Texas lake bed. Every morning, the boys at Camp Green Lake are sent out to the lake bed where they are made to dig a hole five feet deep and five feet wide. "You're digging to build character," the counselors tell Stanley, but it soon becomes clear that he and the other boys at Camp Green Lake are being made to look for something - something that the camp's warden wants.

The warden's secret, the history of Green Lake, the Wild West, and Stanley's own family history all fit together like pieces of a puzzle as choices made in the past continue to have an effect on the present. Soon, Stanley's very life depends on his own choices and events that happened over 100 years ago!

    Purchasing an E-Guide was quick

    Purchasing an E-Guide was quick and efficient. Progeny Press Study Guides have been on of my favorite tools for effectively gauging comprehension and teaching literary devices. In addition, thought provoking questions and scriptural references have enriched many lively discussions.

    Very thorough

    The Holes E-guide is a very thorough study of the book. I like the fact that it encourages the reader to delve into aspects of the characters and plot that really requires them to think rather than offer basic answers. A well written and presented e-guide.
