Stanley is my favorite character because he helps everyone.
The setting was the bottom of a dry lake.
The conflict in this story was that Stanley had been sent to a camp, where the bad boy go, Stanley had to dig a hole every day to build character, the problem was solved when Stanley's lawyer went to Camp Green Lake and helped him to get back home and then the police arrested Mr sir and the Warden of thee lake.
I think the theme of this story is you always need to help everyone because in the future they will help you.
I would recommend HOLES because the this book gives you a message, I would also recommend this book because it helps you to be a better person.
