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?
