First edition. 1999 Newbery Medal Winner and 1998 National Book Award Winner! When Stanley Yelnats is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention center in a desert in Texas, after falsely being accused of theft, little does he know that he will be spending the rest of the summer digging holes in the dried-up lake. But there is more going on at this camp than character improvement, and Stanley and his new friends are about to dig up some long-buried truths that may change their lives in ways they never could have imagined! The basis for the 2003 Disney film starring Shia LaBeouf and Sigourney Weaver.
