    45. 45. Newbery: Literary Qualities Holes by Louis Sachar. Published by Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group Holes by Louis Sachar The reader is probably asking: Why would anyone go to Camp Green Lake? Most campers weren’t given a choice. Camp Green Lake is a camp for bad boys. If you take a bad boy and make him dig a hole every day in the hot sun, it will turn him into a good boy. That was what some people thought. Stanley Yelnats was given a choice. The judge said, “You may go to jail, or you may go to Camp Green Lake.” Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to camp before. Style + Setting + Character + Theme
