Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather and has since followed generation of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys' detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day, digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.
It doesn't take long for Stanley to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the Warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment - and redemption.

    據紐約時報指出這是最勵志的生命故事,真實與否?對青少年而言,真有值得效仿與省思的地方。
    路易斯.薩奇爾用神奇的筆寫出"洞"裡兩個孩子從洞底爬到山頂的不可思議;"小步小步走"寫青少年罪犯回歸社會的辛苦,都是校園裡值得引導的閱讀,適合六年級以上的孩子閱讀,由於這是翻譯小說,適時引導有其必要。
    但劇情感人,真心推薦~

    A fascinating novel for teenagers, inspiring and somewhat poignant.

    讀這本書就像在排拼圖一樣,一開始覺得故事線很亂,邊看邊整理情結,到最後結局時真相大白,真的很過癮。看這本書最好一口氣看完,不然中途斷掉就會忘記之前拼圖排的形狀。

    I remember reading this book and falling head over heals in love with everything about it. It has such a richly involving story that one cannot help but wish they had friends like the ones described in this gem of a book.

    The plot was so rich and vibrant. The history was all there, the accuracy and way things all strung together, it made this book a gooey wonder, like a freshly cracked open candy bar and was so succulent in every which way that it had to be savored over and over.

    When I finished this book for the first time, I began re reading right away and I have this book as an always favorite. Absolutely brilliant and fun.
