Stanley is the protagonist of the book, although he is an unlikely hero. Cruelty is something that one person can cause in another and a cycle of violence and cruelty is shown to pass through many decades and several generations at Green Lake. Zero's real name is Hector Zeroni and he is the supporting protagonist in the book. Zero has not had much of an education so he does not know how to read or write. Stanley joins him and as they struggle in the desert heat, Zero shares his last jar of "sploosh" with Stanley after he has run away. She goes to extreme limits to keep everyone doing what she wants them to do and punish those who diplease her.

Cruelty abounds at Camp Green Lake, and its destructive results are frequently illustrated. This justifies an mutual friendship that benifits both parties.
