First, the setting is in Texas at a Juvenile camp called "Camp Green Lake". There are dangerous yellow spotted lizards everywhere. These characters are Zero and Stanley .
Stanley and Zero's Journey
This is where Stanley got in trouble for "stealing a pair of famous shoes." The antagonists are the Warden and Mr. Sir and Mr. Pendanski. During the conflict, Stanley got in a sticky situation with the shoe incident, but on the bright side, he got to meet his hero, who had the shoes, at court. " Clyde Livinston was at court. In spite of everything, Stanley was excited." Page 22
The lizards and the treasure.
STA- NLY YEL- NATS?
They are dead soon
After that, Stanley met a kid at the camp named Zero. They became really good friends, but, Zero ran away from the camp. Stanley waited for a while, but eventually went looking for Zero. It took a while, but Stanley found him. They decided to move to a better place so, they climbed a mountain called "Big Thumb".
Finally, The Ending
Soon after, The boys reached the top of the mountain, but Zero was extremelyy ill. He slept while Stanley got some food and water. The boys also decided to go back to the camp to find a treasure.
Then, the boys found the treasure, but they soon realize that the warden had been watching them the whole time. They knew that they had gotten caught, but the more important thing right then, was that they were standing in a nest of yellow spotted lizards. When the falling action took place, there was extremely poisonous lizards all over them, but their attorney came to get them. "The sun was down and Stanley was still breathing, he had 8 lizards on him." Page211
Finally, Stanley's attorney came him, and they even got to take Zero! ( and of course the treasure.) Turns out, Stanley's family had something planned for him after all.
