I think the message was that bad luck acerse more than you think. The story of Holes was based on Stanleys great, great grandfathers curse and how it all comes together. Stanley was hit by a pair of shoes, Clyde Livingstones shoes, who was a famous baseball player. He was sent to Camp Green Lake Detension Centre because they thought he stoll the shoes.
Stanley and Zero were the main charaters. Camp Green Lake isn`t really like a normal detension centre though. It isn`t really that nice at all.
My faverite character would have to be Zero because he is allways a bit mysterious. He also was the opposite to what everyone thought he was.
One of the main events was when Stanley was hit in the head with the shoes beacause i think thats what started the whole thing. The reason it happened is because zero had really stole the shoes. Stanley ended up with 18 moths in Camp Green Lake.
I think the book was great,understandable and my faverite part was when zero was living in a hole underneath an old boat.

boy overboard is a story of a family of 4, jamal, bibi, mum and dad. They lived in a house in kabul. They wanted to move to australia because the government had found out about there elegal school there mum was running.
I think the author wrote this story to make people think about the people in afganistan living with muck hasher rules than us. Making us think how lucky we are. The book makes me want to cry from reading the end.
I think the book was funny and also sad.It teaches you what its like to be one of the afgans.

MASH is a group of people who work in afghanistan, who help troups and locals that have benn injured in battle.
this has been going on since some of the soldiers have been in school. There job is to fly out and find the hurt soldiers and bring them back to the tents where doctors and nurses are treating them. 98% of the time the soldiers that go in the tent are not coming back out!
The Americans are not the only ones that are treated in the tent, Afghani locals and even enemy fighters are all treated in there to. While there are soldiers risking there lives, there is always the medics there to save them. A massive explosion has hit an army transport vehicle, two soldiers are dead and 3 wounded. M.A.S.H stand for (mobile army surgical hospital).
