      "Holes was a very interesting book that I read as a kid where the main character got convicted of falsely stealing an item and sent to a camp to 'man up' by digging holes and living in extreme conditions. Over time he makes friends, uncovers a plot by the warden, and ends up dispelling a curse. It's actually pretty engaging and it was a great movie too. If you have a young kid, get them to read it as I bet they will love it. Highly, highly recommend."
