Zero

Zero’s real name is Hector Zeroni, but he has been called Zero for most of his life. He has been homeless for most of his life, and his mother abandoned or lost him when he was still small. Zero has not had much of an education so he does not know how to read or write. Zero knows that he is smart and he has a sense of standing up for himself. At first he is presented as a strange character because he rarely speaks and always walks around with a grim appearance on his face. Then Zero become friend with Stanley and he would only want to speak with Stanley. He knew that Stanley was different from the other guys. And he feels a little guilty because it was because of him that Stanley got arrested. Zero is a little bit younger than Stanley but they became best friends anyway.

Zero is very quiet most of the time, the leader makes fun of him because he thinks he is very stupid and call him Zero and not Hector. The leader always says their real names but not to Zero.

Holes; summary chapter 1-12

Stanley Yelnats, a boy who has bad luck due to a curse placed on his great- great-grandfather, is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention camp, for a crime he did not commit. Stanley and the other boys at the camp are forced to dig large holes in the dirt every day. Stanley eventually realizes that they are digging these holes because the Warden is searching for something. As Stanley continues to dig holes and meet the other boys at the camp, the narrator intertwines three separate stories to reveal why Stanley’s family has a curse and what the Warden is looking for.

When he was a boy, Stanley’s great-great-grandfather, Elya Yelnats, received a pig from Madame Zeroni, a gypsy, in exchange for a promise. Elya’s promise was that after the pig grew strong he would carry Madame Zeroni, who only had one leg, up a mountain and sing her a song that she had taught him. After becoming disappointed with the girl he thought he loved, , Elya hop on a boat to America, forgetting his promise to Madame Zeroni. Elya marries and has a child in America and always thinks about Madame Zeroni, who he believes has cursed him because of his failure to fulfill his promise. He knows that Madame Zeroni’s son lives in America, but Elya never finds him.

One hundred and ten years before Stanley arrives at Camp Green Lake, the town of Green Lake is a beautiful place where peach trees bloom throughout the spring. In this Texas town, the schoolteacher, Katherine Barlow, falls in love with Sam, the onion seller. Sam sells onions to eat and to use for medicinal purposes. While Katherine and Sam are alive, racism is institutionalized in the United States and it is against the law for a black man to kiss a white woman. Because Sam is black and Katherine is white, the people in the town become irate when they find that Katherine and Sam have kissed. Charles, or Trout, Walker, the richest man in town has always wanted to marry Katherine. He is already mad that Katherine does not wish to go out with him so when he finds out that she is in love with Sam he gathers the townspeople to burn the schoolhouse and attack Sam. Katherine seeks help from the local sheriff but instead finds that the sheriff, who makes lewd advances towards her, also wants to kill Sam. Katherine and Sam attempt to escape but their boat is destroyed while only half way across the lake and Sam is killed. Katherine is driven mad by her grief and becomes an outlaw known as Kissing Kate Barlow. Her name refers to the fact that she kisses the men she kills, leaving a lipstick imprint of her lips on their faces. In her twenty years of robbing people in the west, she happens to rob Stanley’s great- grandfather while he is on his way from New York to California. She buries Stanley’s great-grandfather’s money somewhere and even though Charles Walker and his wife Linda try to torture her into revealing its location, Kate dies before anyone can find out where the money is hidden. After the day that Sam is killed, rain stops falling on Green Lake and the lake dries up.

Han tar upp ett läderetui ur fickan. Läderfodral/ask eller plånbok.

Elisabeth är storasystern till Patricia som John-John hade räddat.

Hon är vad man skulle kalla en äkta snobb. Hon bor i en lyxvilla i Bromma med sin familj, shoppar när hon vill och alltid på NK. Hon är uppfostrad med silversked i munnen det vill säga att hon är väldigt bortskämd. Hon lever livet som många drömmer om men hon gillar det inte alls. Hon skulle mycket hellre vilja vara speciell. Hon känner sig som “vem som helst” som hon säger till John-John. Hon tycker inte att hon passar in med de andra i hennes klass. Allt detta är för att hennes pappa knappt pratat med henne sedan hennes bror dog för 5 år sedan. Det har gjort henne till en väldigt sorgsen tjej. Men John-John gör henne lycklig och ger henne sådan kärlek som hon aldrig har fått uppleva. Elisabeth har mellan brunett och blont hår, hon är 16 år och i medellängd.

När John-John hade ringt Elisabeth eftersom han undrade varför hon inte va i skolan så fick han höra att hon hade slätt ner Rolf även kallat skithuvet och är väldigt panikslagen efterdet. Några dagar senare i skolan kom Elisabeth men fortfarande väldigt ledsen. Hon berättade allt för Ulla och Staffan och Ulla tröstar henne medans hon pratar.

Efter denna händelsen så är John-John på sjukhuset med sin mamma och ska hämta Rolf och föra han hem igen. När John-John är på väg ut så kommer Elisabeth där och ser honom med Rolf och springer snabbt iväg eftersom hon ser då att det är John-John pappa iallafall vad hon tror.

När John-John kommer till skolan nästa dag så ser han sin gamle vän Sluggo som har blivit polare med ett gäng andra killar i skolan. Efter lektionen så pratar John-John med Elisabeth om det som hände på sjukhuset men hon är väldigt arg på honom eftersom att han som Elisabeth slog ner var John-johns fejk pappa och tror att det var han som gömde tavlorna o allt. Men sen berättar John-John att det var hennes pappa som gömde tavlorna men hon tror inte honom och går iväg.

Hemma hos Elisabeth har John-John tagit fram tavlorna och hängt upp de på väggen. Hennes pappa kommer in i huset och ser att tavlorna hänger där och försöker att gömma de igen, men sen kommer Elisabeth, hennes syster och hennes mamma in och ser tavlorna med.

Det slutar med att John-John öppnar dörren och skriker efter ”Elisabeth” efter när hon hade lagt handstilsanalysen i brevlådan. Han skriker så mycket efter henne så han nästan blir hes. John-John kramar om henne och gråter samtidigt. När de kom in igen så tog Elisabeth handstilsanalysen och skrev över John-Johns namnteckning ”Jag älskar dig!”
