Stanley Yelnats tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment-and redemption.

Synopsis:

After being sent unjustly to a boys' detention center, Stanley is forced by the warden to dig holes everyday. While the warden claims it's to build character, it doesn't take Stanley long to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. Stanley decides he needs to dig up the truth about what the warden is looking for.
