Stanley Yelnats was walking home from school when a pair of shoes fell out of the sky.
Stanley's father thought that he was on the next break through of shoes, and Stanley thought that he could help his dad by just bringing home the pair of shoes.
Just days later, Stanley had to go to court for stealing a pair of shoes. The judge found him guilty and told him that he either got to go to jail or go to Camp Green Lake. Stanley choose to go to Camp Green Lake.
When Stanley first arrived, the sight of the camp was not what he was expecting it would be.
What is this!?
The first thing he got to do was get new clothing. Then he found out what he was going to do at the camp. The fun that they had at camp was digging holes each and everyday.
Even though Stanley had just started and it took him a while to dig a hole, he got to meet a lot of new friends.
