The book I read was called I Know What You Did LastSummer by Lois Duncan The main theme that I pickedup from this book was that it really doesnt pay to lie Thepeople in this book had to find out the hard way This iswhat happened they were driving home from the beach atnight up on windy road They were a little drunk and alittle high too another theme not to drink and drive and notto get high but anyway as they were coming around thecorner they hit a little boy on his bike The boy came out ofnowhere and he didnt have any reflectors on his bike Hereis where they made their biggest mistake instead of goingto help him they drove to a pay phone passing a restaurantwith a phone because they didnt want to seem suspiciousand called an ambulance They didnt give their names oradmit to hitting him The guy who was driving Barrytalked them into a pact not to tell anyone It turned out thatthe boy died on the way to the hospital which makes thecharges against them a lot greater Especially for Barrybecause he was driving They didnt tell the cops theirparents or their friends It was almost sad how much theystruggled with this guilt I know I cant stand that guiltyfeeling I couldnt live with my self if it was me in theirI learned that nothing good can come out of lying It is just not worth it I have never lied about somethingthat serious but after reading that book I know I never will If you read this book you will find out how this accidentcontinues to haunt them the following summer They try toforget it but they just cant It was something that changedtheir lives for ever And believe me it was not a change forthe better I realized that truthfulness is an extremelyimportant quality for someone to have And I value honestyin my peers even more
