There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
As further evidence of his family's bad fortune which they attribute to a curse on a distant relative, Stanley Yelnats is sent to a hellish correctional camp in the Texas desert where he finds his first real friend, a treasure, and a new sense of himself. A Newbery Award Winner. 75,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Following a miscarriage of justice, the ever-unlucky Stanley Yelnats is sentenced to imprisonment at a boys' juvenile detention center known as Camp Green Lake. There's just one thing about Camp Green Lake--there's no lake, just a dried-up lake bed in which, every day, each boy must dig a hole five feet deep and five feet across. The sadistic warden claims that digging the holes helps the boys build character, but that's nothing more than a lie--and it's up to Stanley and his fellow prisoners to dig up the truth about why the warden really wants them to perform this task. Recipient of the 1999 Newbery Medal.
Author Bio
Louis Sachar
Best known for the critically acclaimed HOLES, Louis Sachar was a lawyer before devoting himself to writing children's books full-time. Though he was born in New York, most of his childhood was spent in California, where he attended the University of California at Berkeley after a brief stint at Antioch ended by his father's death. His experiences working as a teacher's aide at a local elementary school inspired the popular Wayside School series. A bridge enthusiast, Sachar lives with his wife, Carla, in Austin, Texas.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"...a smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel that middle-grade readers will want to solve on their own....Tough, truehearted and ultimately tender, 'Holes' is also a member of that endangered species, the family read aloud." - Betsy Hearne 11/15/1998
