Holes by Louis Sachar
This multiple award-winning novel skilfully captures the essence of childhood in the form of the adventures of Stanley Yelnats and his exploits. It introduces different coloured threads in the beginning which eventually get woven together bit by bit, creating a vibrant tapestry in the end. Also, it teaches you that if you are and overweight kid then digging holes in a desert in the sun is as good an exercise as any. Very riveting and thrilling, it is truly a page turner.
