About the book (Not included):
Holes is a 1998 novel written by Louis Sachar. It won the 1998 U.S. National Book Award for Young People’s Literature and the 1999 Newbery Medal for the year’s “most distinguished contribution to American literature for children”. The story centers on an unlucky teenage boy named Stanley Yelnats, who is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile corrections facility in a desert in Texas, after being falsely accused of theft.

These interconnecting stories touch on themes such as racism, homelessness, illiteracy, and arranged marriage.
