The one friend Stanley made was a young boy named ‘zero’, hector zeroni, who Stanley taught to read and wright, and cairs for him on gods thumb.Camp Green Lake with Stanley and Hector is an exciting experience, I personally forgot I was reading the story and found myself in the middle of it, it even seemed impossible at times to think I was reading the story. Stanly uncovered important information which put everyone in dread changed his life. He found a suit case, precisely the reason they were put to dig a hole every day. In the suitcase he found together with hector, there were valuable papers and jewelry, altogether was worth about 2 million dollars, which was shared evenly between Stanley and hector. Stanley and his family had enough money to move into a new house and Zero hired a team of private investigators which enabled him to find his lost mother.
