AUTUMN CLASS READING BOOK
In class, we are currently reading Holes, by Louis Sachar. This is linked to our history topic, Crime & Punishment.
In this story, Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad look, so he isn't too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a boys' juvenile detention centre. At Camp Green Lake the boys must dig a hole a day, five feet deep, five feet across, in the dried up lake bed. The warden claims the labour is character building, but it is a lie, Stanley must dig up the truth.
