  • Witty, poignant and at times heart-breaking, Louis Sachar's searing story is set in the Camp Green Lake juvenile detention centre. Stanley Yelnats, sentenced to penal labour – digging holes in the desert – begins to tap into the secrets and deception that lie at the facility's heart. Masquerading as a character-building exercise, what is the real reason behind the holes? Intensely touching and artfully plotted, Holes is a masterpiece.

    Holes lends itself to explicitly teaching comprehension skills such as understanding themes, inferences, and character and quote analysis. It helps to build new vocabulary under the guise of a great plot.

    Children will develop empathy for the protagonist, reflect on their own character and identify with the themes of growing up and even living in a dystopian world.
