"Everyone makes mistakes. You may have done some bad things, but that doesn't mean you are a bad kid."
"This is really crazy."
First, the reader is introduced to Camp Green Lake. Camp Green Lake isn't much of a lake. It is more of a desert. Next, the reader is introduced the the main protagonist, Stanley Yelnats.
Thanks for the help, boys.
Just after the introduction of Camp Green Lake, the reader is told why Stanley got sent to Camp Green Lake. Stanley got sent to Camp Green Lake because a pair of shoes that were worn by the famous baseball player, Clyde Livingston, fell on top of him. He thought that they could be useful to his dad. However, he got accused of stealing them and was sent to Camp Green Lake.
As soon as Stanley arrives at Camp Green Lake, he meets Mr. Pendanski and Zero. Mr. Pendanski was going to be his counselor. Later on, after Stanley and the other kids in Group D dug many holes, Zero hit Mr. Pendanski and ran away. Stanley soon followed him to see if he was okay, or even if was still alive.
After Stanley found Zero, he helped him a ton. He gave him the things he needed, like the onions. He helped do things that he couldn't do because he ate the "sploosh" that was under the boat. The Warden then finds them digging a final hole. The two boys however did find a suitcase, with Stanley's name on it. However, they were stuck in the hole with yellow spotted lizards.
Stanley's new lawyer came, and helped get Stanley and Zero out of the hole. Stanley was allowed to leave. Zero was then also allowed to leave because after he ran away, all of his records were deleted. Stanley and Zero were finally released to go back home!
This is illegal.
Woo! We're free to leave!
In the end, Stanley and Zero found out that the suitcase had valuable jewels, and papers. Them combined were worth thousands and thousands of dollars.
