This is a very good book about a innocent boy named stanley. He is convicted of a crime that he had no idea about. There is a curse on his family, and he ends going to a detention centre called Camp Green Lake. There Stanley and the rest of the criminals have to dig one hole each day in search of a treasure. Eventually Stanleys lawyer comes to say he was innocent but by that time Stanley ran away in search of Gods thumb. But by the end of the book Stanley is home with a treasure. I really liked this book because it was very interesting.
