She waited a little at realized that the blood spelt "I know what you did last summer". She really didn't get why it said that so she kept driving and didn't say anything. That was a mistake. Many more times this happened like on the shower mirror, She gets letters and she thinks it's from a friend and she opens it and it says, " I know what you did last summer".

The author of I Know What You Did Last Summer is Lois Duncan. This book is a very suspenseful mystery story about four teenagers. The main characters in the book are Julie, Helen, Barry, and Ray. Some of the major events in I Know What You Did Last Summer are when Julie gets a note about something that she and three of her friends did last summer, Helen gets a picture of a boy on his bicycle, and Ray gets an article that was cut out of the paper about the accident. Then, Barry gets shot by a mysterious person, Helen almost gets killed, and Julie almost dies.
I absolutely LOVE this book. It is so suspenseful and mysterious, and I like suspenseful things. It was especially suspenseful when someone said that they were going to get Julie, Helen, Ray, and Barry because of what they did. This book starts off interesting and exciting. I think it does because it was very mysterious. It was mysterious because someone that the four friends did not know about what, or who, was coming after them and sending things to them. I feel like I am right there in the book with the characters. This is most likely the most suspenseful that I have read in my whole life.
I think the theme in this book is "Count on your friends to help you." I think so because Barry and Julie think that there is no point in living and that this is the end for them. Then, amazingly, their friends Helen and Ray help them get through their stage. If you are a person who likes mysterious things in life, you should definitely read I Know What You Did Last Summer.

This book, I must say, is one great detailed horrer-thriller. Four friends, all driving in a car when they suddenly hit a young boy. Knowing they would be arrested, they leave the boy lying there and report the incident to the police anonomously. They were shakened up at the beginning, but at the same time, they felt that no one knew besides them. They were wrong. And that witness wants revenge.
One great quote that jumps off this book is,"I'll close my eyes, and when I open them I will wake up. It will be gone-the paper will be gone-it will never have been. So she closed her eyes, and when she opened them again the paper was still there in her hand with the short sentence printed on it-'I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER.' "
Another quote that makes you feel the intensity of the book is, "There was no time to feel the pain, no time to consider the consequences as she thrust her head and shoulders through the narrow opening. And then, because it was the only thing left to do, she wiggled forward through the frame of the of the window and let herself fall."
My favorite part of the book probably is the beginning where Julie finds the note and has a flashback of what she did. I recommend this book for anyone looking for a good scare.

I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is a story about a group of four high school students who are involved in a hit and run accident which ends up killing a young boy. Speeding down the road late at night after hours of partying, the group strikes a young boy on his bicycle. Instead of stopping to help, the group drives to the nearest phone and makes an anonymous phone call to the police to report the accident. The group makes a pact not to tell what happened. The event causes the breakdown of fellowship between the four friends and they go their separate ways. About a year later, one of the girls receives an anonymous note that reads "I Know What You Did Last Summer." Horrified, she gets in touch with the other members of the pact and the chase is on. One thing leads to another and before they know it, they're trying to outsmart a killer.
If you've seen the movie, don't be expecting any graphic violence here or a man with a hook. Instead, this story revolves itself around lessons of honesty, revenge, and the dangers of living a lie. The characters are realistic and easy to relate to. Girls will probably enjoy this book much more than guys because of the romantic elements involved, but it has enough who-dunnit to appeal to males, too.

The amazing thriller, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" by Lois Duncan is a great book for teenagers. This mystery book is action packed with events that will surprise you.
Written in 1973, this book portrays the life of four teenagers, Ray, Barry, Helen, and Julie, who one night when driving home from a party, unexpectedly hit a young boy on the road. Thinking they could get a way with it, they called the ambulance, but did not tell them their name. Now, a year later, someone is stalking them; someone knows what they did last summer.
The characters are portrayed very nicely within the story. Some of the characters may seem a certain way in the beginning of the story, but by the end of the story, the character may turn a totally different direction.
It takes place within many places in the town. The most remarkable things happen at the University campus or at Four Seasons Apartments. Watch these four high-school kids struggle through the events that take place.
Lois Duncan's writing style really adds to the book. She describes the scenery and the characters as if you are there too. When reading this book, I can picture the characters and exactly what they are doing.
While reading this book, I was flipping the pages with anticipation as to what was going to happen next, and I think you will too. Many of you may have seen the movie, but do not be fooled, the book is nothing like the movie.
Now you know what they did last summer. Are you strong enough to read the book?
