The first chapter of Holes, Stanley had a choice between Jail, or Camp Green Lake. Stanley told the judge Camp green lake, because nobody wants to be at jail. Stanley and the other fellow camp boys rid in the bus there. Cleary, there were terrified, confused, and upset.
But when the boys got there, there was no lake, or green. (in this scene there is green but not in the story). And they had to dig holes, everyday all day in the sun.
I have a long way to dig..
But Stanley´s hole did get bigger.. Even in chapter 1 it was making just a tiny, tiny difference!
Stanley had to wear orange work clothes when he was working.
