Award-winning author Louis Sachar is a terrific storyteller who always has an original and interesting perspective. Holes tells the story of Stanley Yelnats, whose family has a history of bad luck. Stanley's not too surprised when he's sent to a juvenile detention centre in Texas for a crime he didn't commit, but even he can't believe that all he and the other boys have to do is dig holes all day. Before long, Stanley realises that what he must actually uncover is the truth... Readers from 9+ who love a good story will find this totally unputdownable.
