Stanley Yelnats was arrested for stealing shoes that he didn’t steal and was sent to camp Green Lake. There he would dig holes everyday to build character.
There met 5 other boys. Zero,X-Ray, Squid, Magnet, and Zigzag.They dug their holes every day. They didn’t like it but they did it. Secretly after awhile Stanley was teaching Zero how to read and write but Zero had to dig half of Stanley’s hole.
One day Magnet steals Mr.Sir’s (one of the mean counselors) sun flower seeds and they toss them to Stanley to get some but he drops them. Mr.Sir comes back and takes him to The Warden. She slaps Mr.Sir with some crazy nail polish.
One day Zero hit Mr.Pendanski (their consular) and ran away. No one know where he went and how he would survive .
Stanley was so worried that he ran away about a week later too.
Stanley found Zero under a boat. Perfectly fine. He was so relived! But secretly Zero was ailing
