Holes - Louis Sachar Protagonists with palindromic names are only cool in kids' fiction (although i suspect Thomas Pynchon could pull it off). So, dear Stanley Yelnats, please change your first and/or last name, because it's painful to read.

Oh, yeah. He was in a book too, right? A disappointing kids' book that could have benefited from a (much) more believable plot? Yup.
