Holes by Louis Sachar, 233 pages
Stanley's latest round of bad luck sends him to Camp Green Lake, a detention camp for wayward boys. It isn't green and there isn't a lake and the boys are expected to dig a five-foot hole every day in the old lake bed.
Stanley unknowingly gets the chance to break the family curse while he's there. This is a great children's book that won many awards, including the 1999 Newbery Medal. I listened to it because I was looking for something quick and enjoyable and I was not disappointed.
