Holes is a funny book and everyone will love it. You can picture it in your mind and you'll feel sympathy for the main character. You'll feel the excitment and friendship and bullying. It's like real life, but, of course, you don't go to boy's detention camp because of your no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great- great grandfather that put you under a curse and get arrested when you're inoccent. I hope other people will enjoy the book because I did!
