Table of contents

The book 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. The plot explores the history of the area and how the actions of several characters in the past have affected Stanley's life in the present. These interconnecting stories touch on themes such as racism, homelessness, illiteracy, and arranged marriage. The book was both a critical and commercial success. Much of the praise for the book has centered around its complex plot, interesting characters, and representation of people of color and incarcerated youth.

It won the U. National Book Award for Young People's Literature and the Newbery Medal for the year's "most distinguished contribution to American literature for children". In it was ranked number six among all-time children's novels in a survey published by School Library Journal. Holes was adapted by Walt Disney Pictures as a feature film of the same name released in A sequel to Holes entitled Small Steps was published in and centers on one of the secondary characters in the novel, Armpit.

Stanley Yelnats IV is a year-old boy from a hard-working but poor family that is allegedly affected by a curse of bad luck, which they blame on Stanley's "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather". He is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile corrections facility which is ironically located in the middle of a desert; the lake dried up decades ago.

The inmates are assigned to dig one hole each day, five feet wide and five feet deep, which the Warden claims "builds their character". The novel alternates this story with two set in the past, with interrelated but distinct plot lines. Stanley's Latvian great-great-grandfather, Elya Yelnats, falls in love with a fifteen-year-old girl named Myra. However, her father would rather she married the much older pig farmer Igor, who can offer him his heaviest pig. Elya goes to his friend Madame Zeroni for help.

Despite not approving of Myra as a partner, she gives him a tiny piglet, telling him to carry it up a mountain every day, and let it drink from a stream while singing to it. Each time, the pig will grow bigger.

Zeroni says that in return, Elya must then carry her up the mountain. She warns him that if he does not do this, his family will be cursed. Elya follows her directions, and the pig grows large. But after realizing Myra does not care whether she marries him or Igor, Elya leaves in disgust and instead moves to America.

He forgets his promise to Zeroni.

Though he falls in love and marries, he becomes beset by bad luck. The song that he sang to the pig becomes a lullaby that is passed down among his descendants. In the year , the town of Green Lake is a flourishing lakeside community. Katherine Barlow, the white local schoolteacher, falls in love with Sam, an African-American onion seller, while rejecting advances from wealthy resident Charles Walker. There is an uproar in the town after Katherine and Sam are seen kissing.

Seeing a dangerous mob gather, Katherine finds Sam and they attempt an escape across the lake in Sam's rowboat, but Walker and the mob intercept them with Walker's motorboat. Sam is shot dead, while Katherine is "rescued" against her wishes. From then on, no rain falls upon Green Lake again. Three days later, Katherine kills the sheriff , in revenge for his refusal to help.

She then becomes a prominent outlaw called "Kissin' Kate Barlow". Among her victims are Stanley's great-grandfather. He was left abandoned in the desert, but survived. Later on, she is tracked down by Charles Walker and his wife. They try to force her to reveal where she buried her loot, but she is bitten by a venomous lizard and dies.

She taunts them with her last words: "Start digging! The Warden allows the inmates the rest of their day off if they find anything "interesting". Stanley begins to suspect the Warden is looking for something. During one dig, he finds one of Barlow's lipstick tubes. He gives it to X-Ray, the ringleader of his group, who pretends to find it the next day. The Warden is excited by the discovery and orders them to enlarge X-Ray's hole. Stanley befriends Zero, a street child and a descendant of Madame Zeroni. Stanley teaches Zero to read in return for Zero digging part of Stanley's holes.

This leads to an argument with the other inmates, and then the staff. Zero then flees. The camp staff decide to erase their record of him and let him die in the desert. A few days later, Stanley follows Zero and finds him living under the remains of Sam's boat, eating very old jars of Barlow's spiced peaches, which he calls "Sploosh".

They journey across the desert and up the mountain, where they discover a field of onions that was once Sam's. The boys eat the onions and find water by digging in the ground, and Stanley sings Madame Zeroni's song to Zero. They return to camp and dig in the hole Stanley found the lipstick tube, unearthing a suitcase and venomous lizards.

Underworlds

The Warden and staff appear and demand they hand it over, but retreat because of the lizards, which are passive to Stanley and Zero it is implied onions deter them. The Warden is revealed to be Walker's granddaughter. Stanley's attorney appears at the camp, explaining that Stanley has been exonerated. Leave no corner unsearched. You never know where some poor prisoner may be concealed. I say. Call Aslan—Phew! How it smells in here—Look out for trap-doors—Up here! There are a whole lot more on the landing!

Oh, do come quick. The little chap was none the worse for having been a statue and was of course very interested in all she had to tell him. The whole castle stood empty with every door and window open and the light and the sweet spring air flooding into all the dark and evil places which needed them so badly. The whole crowd of liberated statues surged back into the courtyard. And it was then that someone Tumnus, I think first said, "But how are we going to get out? You up there," he roared. It will be a pleasure," said Giant Rumblebuffin.

The gates creaked at the first blow, cracked at the second, and shivered at the third. Then he tackled the towers on each side of them and after a few minutes of crashing and thudding both the towers and a good bit of the wall on each side went thundering down in a mass of hopeless rubble; and when the dust cleared it was odd, standing in that dry, grim, stony yard, to see through the gap all the grass and waving trees and sparkling streams of the forest, and the blue hills beyond that and beyond them the sky.

I suppose neither of you young ladies has such a thing as a pocket-handkerchee about you? But just as she was getting near his face he suddenly started and then put her gently back on the ground muttering, "Bless me! I beg your pardon, Missie, I thought you was the handkerchee! Not at all," said the giant politely.

So fine, so handy. One of the most respected of all the giant families in Narnia. Not very clever, perhaps I never knew a giant that was , but an old family. With traditions, you know. Those who are good with their noses must come in front with us lions to smell out where the battle is. Look lively and sort yourselves. The most pleased of the lot was the other lion who kept running about everywhere pretending to be very busy but really in order to say to everyone he met.
