Holes, de Louis Sachar, gran expert en literatura juvenil, és la història de Stanley Yelnats, acusat de robar les sabates del jugador de beisbol Clyde Livingston, que acaba en un reformatori juvenil. Meravellosament imaginatiu i divertit, Louis Sachar ha creat una obra mestra.
Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck, so when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre (which isn't green and doesn't have a lake) he is not surprised. Every day he and the other inmates are told to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, reporting anything they find. The evil warden claims that it is character building, but this is a lie and Stanley must dig up the truth.
Wonderfully inventive, compelling and hilarious, Louis Sachar has created a masterpiece. This multi-million bestseller now in an exciting new package ahead of the publication of Sachar's newest 9-11 fiction title Fuzzy Mud (publishing August 2015)
