Description

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.show more

Review quote

'Written with a crystalline prose and simplicity of style it is startlingly original. There is not one false sentence.' Independent on Sunday '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 'An exceptionally funny and generous book that is also a tightly plotted detective novel.' Guardianshow more
