Stanley Yelnats is cursed. It began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has followed Yelnatses for generations. Now Stanley’s been sent to a detention center where boys build character by digging five foot–square holes all day. There’s no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are a lot of holes. What could be buried under a dried-up lake?
