Holes Chapter 37 Summary

  • Zero and Stanley continue up the mountain, getting closer and closer to Big Thumb. They see weeds growing in the area, and there are gnats biting at their skin. Blech.
  • Suddenly, Zero doubles over in pain and vomits up the sploosh. Then, trooper that he is, he gives Stanley a thumbs-up and they keep walking.
  • Stanley realizes that the presence of weeds and bugs means that there must be water nearby. Zero smiles happily at this idea and then passes out.
  • Stanley can't wake him up.
