The harshness of the situation is mitigated by the multifaceted mystery and by the strangely lighthearted way the author tells the story.
How did she come to be such a fearsome outlaw? Stanley, or 'Caveman' as the boys at Camp Green Lake call him, is a juvenile with a disturbing secret. After his friend Zero, a boy he helped learn to read runs away, he goes looking for him.
And I just sort of put all those elements together, not really knowing what was going to happen. The Warden tries to claim they stole the suitcase from her, but Zero reveals that the name 'Stanley Yelnats' is written on it, as the suitcase had belonged to Stanley's great-grandfather.
Without revealing too much, and yet dropping enough clues for readers to piece the puzzle together as they go, Sachar unveils each story as a stand-alone piece while keeping firm footing in the main story.
Stanley Yelnats, falsely convicted of stealing a celebrity's sneakers, is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention center in the middle of the desert, where the inmates are required to dig a large hole every day. A book filled with adventure and friendship. It's a very subtle blend of real life with a hint of magic.

When you finish, the rest of the day is yours. Every time that Stanley does something nice for X-Ray, X-Ray is nice to Stanley and stands up for him when the other boys pick on him. He finds that he has to dig holes every day, as wide and as deep as his shovel. We don't need a fence. Stanley often thinks he is the weirdest and craziest kid at Camp Green Lake.
In return for Madame Zeroni's help, Elya promised to carry her up the mountain to drink from a special spring one more time before she died. On the verge of death. He also asks if Zero can come with him, which in turn leads to the closure of Camp Green Lake.
He is often referred to as his "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather", constantly being blamed for everything that goes wrong in Stanley's life. Will he even survive in the desert? Zero is known to be the best digger at Camp Green Lake.
He gets upset when Kate denies his request to date her. The book itself is chalk full of fun While at Camp Green Lake, Stanley has improved his physical strength and his self-confidence in addition to making a true friend.
However, a much older pig farmer named Igor Barkov also wants to marry her, offering Myra's father his heaviest pig in exchange for Myra's hand in marriage.
Myra's father promised to award her hand in marriage to whichever suitor can raise the fattest pig. He even forms a tentative friendship with one of them, Zero.
Although the rest of the white people in the town are racist and enforce rules that prohibit black people from going to school, Kate, who is white, does not care about the color of a person's skin and she loves Sam for the person that he is.
When Kate and Sam kiss, the angry townsfolk kill Sam and destroy her beloved schoolhouse. Stanley and Zero find a suitcase that has the name Stanley Yelnats on it. Sam is ruthlessly shot and killed in the water, while Kate is "rescued" against her wishes. It is a great book for a teen reader.
He attempts to discover a way to recycle old sneakers and because of this, the Yelnats' apartment smells bad. The keys to the mystery are scattered among a boy named Zero, a warden with rattlesnake venom nail polish, and a boat that is named after an onion-eating mule and sits in the middle of a dry lake bed.Louis Sachar is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Holes, which won the Newbery Medal, the National Book Award, and the Christopher Award, as well as Stanley Yelnats' Survival to Camp Green Lake; Small Steps, winner of the Schneider Family Book Award; and The Cardturner, a Publishers Weekly Best Book, a Parents' Choice Gold /5().
