      This book tells us about a boy called Stanley Yelnats. He is accused of stealing but he is actually innocent. The judge gives him a choice - either go to Camp Green Lake or Jail. So Stanley goes to Camp, since he never went before. But Camp Green Lake is horrible, and Stanley hates it...

              This book is very interesting! I read it in fourth grade and I really enjoyed it. There is also a really funny movie that is with the book. Read it before you see it!! The book is really funny and sad at times. You will love the characters. Please read! Someday this may be a great piece of literature.
