Stanley is a school boy who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is convicted of stealing shoes and sent to correctional camp Green Lake. Camp Green lake is by the side of a dried up lake in the middle of a desert. Escape seems impossible because there is no food or water. The life is tough. Each day the boys have to dig a hole 5 foot deep and 5 foot wide measured by the shovel. The book has a good ending but you need to read the book to find out what happens. You won’t be disappointed. After each chapter you will not want to put the book down. There is another story running parallel telling the events at Green lake 110 years before which tie into the main story.
The book is not lengthy and easy to read. Good characters well described. Well written. Not boring. Recommended for all teenagers. Adults can enjoy. I read the book because my son is reading it at school.
