Reflection, Connection & Personal Response:
Yes, yes, I know: this book is way too young for me and I’ve read it like, a million times. What can I say? It’s a favorite.
Holes tells the story of Stanley Yelnats, a boy falsely accused of stealing a famous athlete’s shoes. He gets sent to Camp Green Lake, in which boys digs holes to ‘build character,’ but there’s obviously more going on than what meets the eye.
I love the characters in this story so much. Zero, Stanley, Sam and Kate Barlow….all of them have this set personality that I love. (Especially Kate. She’s amazing, I love her backstory. If I was ever to become an outlaw, she’d be my role model.) I like the small plot twists in the story that all tie up in the end.
(Also, can you believe I still haven’t watched the movie?????)
