Nobody knows the real reason they're digging all these holes, but Stanley soon begins to question why the Warden is so interested in anything 'special' the boys find. Stanley and his campmates must stick together and keep one step ahead of the Warden and her henchmen as they plot a daring escape from the camp to solve the myster and break the Yelnats family curse.
