There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.It doesn't take long for Stanley to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake.

    I would recommend this audiobook because of its lessons for teenagers who don't want to come from the holes they had been in before. Thanks for this audioboo.

  • Erica Vetter

    Voices were believable, the story is great, and it moves a good pace for the classroom or car ride. Listeners of all ages would enjoy, but perfect for my fifth grade class.

  • Steven Engelking

    Good book But it is a very fast book for a 11 year old that takes it to school

  • LaJonda Searcy

    I did not think that I would enjoy this book as much as I have! The narrator's voice merely painted a picture with his melodic voice. Sacher did a wonderful job writing this novel. Thank you!!!!
