Holes by Louis Sachar
Winner of the Newberry Medal and National Book Award, Louis Sachar’s story about a boy with a family curse, and a camp with ulterior motives is a modern-day classic. Holes tells the story of Stanley Yelnats, a boy unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center at Camp Green Lake. Stanley endures long days digging five-foot holes under the hot Texas sun with other boys. Soon he figures out that the boys aren’t just digging holes to build character; they are digging holes because the warden is looking for something, and that something might be the key to Stanley’s family curse. Help readers understand how to determine theme with the Book Club lesson plans and resources focusing on finding evidence to support student-identified themes in the story.
