Subject: Stanley's experiences at a boys' detention center.
Setting: The fictional Camp Green Lake in Texas
Stanley has been sent to a boys' detention center for a crime he did not commit. Stanley's unjust sentence is the continuation of a curse that began with his great-great-grandfather. The boys at the center are forced to dig large holes to "improve their character." In time, Stanley figures out that the boys are really digging the holes because the warden is looking for something.

SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS
Things went wrong a lot for Stanley Yelnats and his parents. It was a family joke. They always seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. They didn't believe in curses but they seemed to have more than their share of bad luck. Write a paragraph about a time that you felt unlucky.
In the two settings of the realistic novel "Holes," both present and past, the characters live in isolated, lawless environments. Many of the characters take authority into their own hands and act cruelly towards others. Write a multi-paragraph essay that argues that the characters in "Holes" begin to behave cruelly towards others after they have been treated badly themselves. You must write a thesis statement that expresses this opinion, a body of two or three paragraphs to support your statement, and a concluding paragraph that sums up this point of view.
