The first hole's the worst.
No, the second.
Actually, the third.
Stanley is sent to a jail for "bad boys". He is forced to dig holes every single day exactly 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep. Stanley and his friends wonder why they are digging holes. It's all up to Stanley to dig up the truth.
I would give this book a 4.5/5. I couldn't put the book down. Perfect read for 9-13 years of age.
What I like about this book is the humour and the great work of fiction. This book is very adventurous and exciting. I also like the amount of "cliff-hangers". It makes you really want to read the next chapter and so on. A next step is that make the summary on the back more exciting. Most people like me didn't really want to read the book at first (the back seems boring). However, the cover is very well done and looks very artistic! Well done Louis Sachar!
