Burning up

The book i have just started reading is about this girl named Macey who lives in her hometown, conneticut. Macey is suppose to do a research paper and she decides to write about this barn that was burned down in 1959 wich is across the street from her grandparents. But the thing is is when she asks her relatives who lived long enough to remember what happened to the barn and the story behind it, no one wants to answer the questions she asks them.  But when one of her friends becomes the victim of the city they live in, something inside of macey clicks. She starts to think twice about people in that town and she has to discover her own true colors and face the truth about that barn that burned down.


I finished up reading up the book called "Holes" and when Stanley goes off to the camp, he hardley talks and nobody really talks to him but when Stanley goes to dig his first hole it was the hardest for him and he finishes up as the last one done and he has major blisters on his hand. After he's done digging he goes into this wreck room type thing and while he wasn't paying attention he trips over the mean looking dudes leg and the big guy gets up and pushes Stanley. All of the kids from Stanley's group goes over and tries to protect Stanley and that's when he gets the nickname "caveman". While Stanley reads his letters he got from his mom Zero stands behind him and Stanley doesn't like it because he doesn't like it when people read over his shoulder. But no worries Zero can't read. So Stanley and Zero make a deal were if Zero digs part of Stanley's hole everyday,Stanley could teach Zero how to read since Stanley won't be so tired. But that only goes so far. When other people start figuring out Zero is digging part of Stanley's hole, they start to disown Stanley. When the counselor comes down to refill the kid's canteens and give them stuff to eat, a kid named zigzag starts stuff with Stanley. Stanley and Zigzag get into a fight and Zero comes up and jumps on Zigzag and starts to choke him to protect Stanley. When they get broken up the warden comes down to see what went on. Zigzag and his crew tell her what all happened and how Zero is digging some of Stanley's hole. the counselor and her talk to Zero about how it's a waste of time teaching Zero because he is dumb. The counselor says letters for Zero to see if he can spell it. Zero is irritated by this, so when the counselor spells out d-i-g, Zero takes his shovel and wacks it against the counselors head and Zero gets over him and says "dig" and he takes off running away. The next day when one of the other counselors comes and delivers water, Stanley steals the truck and tries to drive it to Zero. But he ends up driving it into a hole so Stanley takes off running away to catch Zero. They eventually end up meeting up with eachother while Zero was under a boat. They see this mountain that looks like the shape of a thumb so they march up the mountain and Zero faints and Stanley carries him up the hill while singing the song his great great grandfather was suppose to sing to Madam Zeroni. When they get up to the top they find water and onions. They stay up there for a couple of days and hed back to camp secretly because Stanley knows were possibly the treasure could be. At night when they sneak back into camp and get to their hole they start digging and while digging they here a "thump" and they dig up around that area. What they found was the treasure. But the warden and the counselors catch them but while they get out if the hole and the warden tries to take the treasure away from them because she thinks it's hers, Zero yells "it has Stanleys name on it!" and it sure does right on the side so when Stanley's attorney comes for him to take him home because he was proved innocent, he tells her he's not leaving without Hector (Zero) so his attorney asks for Hectors files and they don' have any of them because they destroyed them. So Hector and Stanley get to go home happy. But before they do it starts to rain again at the camp because Stanley broke the hidden curse. When they leave the camp, they become neighbors.
