Holes - Louis Sachar 

Stanley Yelnats isn't surprised to find himself at Camp Green Lake, digging holes in the dried-up lake bed, day after scorching day. After all, his family has a history or Bad luck.
The boys a Camp Green Lake must dig one hole each day, five feet deep and five feet across. But what are they digging for? Why did Green Lake dry up? And what do onions and lizards have to do with it all? The answers a lie in Stanley Yelnsats own past.
