More About the Author

Lois Duncan was born in Philadelphia, PA, and grew up in Sarasota, FL.
She knew from early childhood that she wanted to be a writer. She submitted her first story to a magazine at age 10 and became published at 13. Throughout her high school years she wrote regularly for young people's publications, particularly Seventeen.

As an adult, Lois moved to Albuquerque, NM, where she taught magazine writing for the Journalism Department at the University of New Mexico and continued to write for magazines. Over 300 of her articles and stories appeared in such publications as Ladies Home Journal, Redbook, McCall's, Good Housekeeping, and Reader's Digest, and for many years she was a contributing editor for Woman's Day.

Lois is the author of over 50 books, ranging from children's picture books to poetry to adult non-fiction, but is best known for her young adult suspense novels, which have received Young Readers Awards in 16 states and three foreign countries. In 1992, Lois was awarded the Margaret A. Edwards Award, presented by the School Library Journal and the ALA Young Adult Library Services Association for "a distinguished body of adolescent literature." In 2009, she received the Katharine Drexel Award, awarded by the Catholic Library Association "to recognize an outstanding contribution by an individual to the growth of high school and young adult librarianship and literature." In 2015 she was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.

Six of her novels -- SUMMER OF FEAR, KILLING MR. GRIFFIN, GALLOWS HILL, RANSOM, DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU and STRANGER WITH MY FACE -- were made-for-TV movies. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and HOTEL FOR DOGS were box office hits.

Although young people are most familiar with Lois Duncan's fictional suspense novels, adults may know her best as the author of WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER?, the true story of the murder of Kaitlyn Arquette, the youngest of Lois's five children. Kait's heartbreaking story has been featured on such TV shows as Unsolved Mysteries, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Sally Jessy Raphael and Inside Edition. A full account of the family's on-going personal investigation of this still unsolved homicide can be found on the Internet at http://kaitarquette.arquettes.com.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read several Lois Duncan books and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is by far the most surprising and suspenseful of them all. I have once watched the movie "I Know What You Did Last Summer" a while back and remember it to be hardly interesting. The book version however, was much more appealing to the mind than the movie was. The book has the same basic as the movie did with the same four main characters, Julie, Helen, Ray and Barry. It starts out the same with a car accident with a stranger in the beginning that comes back to haunt them the next summer, with threats and later into more killings and suspense than the movie had to offer. The entire story leaves you hanging on the tip of your chair from suspense at its finest. The ending was different from what I had originally expected and I'm sure other readers of this book feel the same. I recommend all mystery/horror and Lois Duncan readers to read this book if they have the time and interest in this type of book or are a fan of Lois Duncan's workings. I rate this book with 5 stars because of my high level of interest and concern throughout the entire book.

A Review by Meghan
One night, while coming home from partying, Barry hit a young boy riding a bicycle. Also in the car were Julie, Ray, and Helen. They all panicked and then called the police anonymously. They made a pact never to tell anyone about the accident. It's been a year now and someone's out for revenge. They all get some sort of sign that someone else knows about it, but who? No one ever told anyone else.
I like how this book keeps you in suspense. The story leads up to the climax very well with everyone getting notes or phone calls. The author doesn't give anything away about the person sending the notes' is, until he reveals himself. You can easily follow when the author switches from one point of view to another. The conflict of someone out to get you seems real because you can kind of imagine someone doing that. The characters Lois Duncan has brought "alive" seem very realistic (especially if you've seen the movie). They were all really believable. I kind of wish the book would extend so you could see what happens after everything has happened.
I would recommend this book to people if you like suspense and mystery. I think this is a really good book. It's easy to follow the book.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on May 6, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really liked this book. It was not like the movie. It has a great mystery behind what is happening .Towards the end it becomes a C.S.I. put clues together sort of thing, which I thought was great. It begins in early summer when 4 friends were on Mountain Road going too fast and hit a kid named David Gregg and kept driving. Then a year later, when they thought they had gotten rid of the worst summer of their lifes, the threats and deadly reminders come in. Who is behind this sinister plot? Read this awesome book and find out.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
First of all I wanted to say that this book is nothing like the movie. It had the same basic plot, but thats about it. As many movies that are based on books, the book is a lot better. This story is about four teens who accidentely hit a kid riding his bike while they were drunk and speeding, they did as much as they could to cover up the murder, but one year later one of the teens gets a note that says "I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER." Next, the person that wrote the note starts blackmailing them by leaving newspaper articles about the hit and run, and pictures of them standing by the kid after the acident. Eventually he begins threatening them. The teens know that they need to find out who knows what they did, before they are either found out by police, or even worse killed by the blackmailer. This book is very suspenseful and it has a lot of twists in the plot. Its a must read for fans of any book fan.

In the intriguing book I Know What You Did Last Summer, by Lois Duncan, you can be sure to be on the edge of your seat though out the whole story. This book keeps you guessing who's after the group of friends. The book also shows how well friends can stick together though out many hardships. Another thing, it tell you how much a group of friends can go through in one year. The story starts out when a group of friends are drunk and hit a little boy on his bike. He was killed instantly. They make a pact to never tell anyone. A year later they all start getting strange and creepy notes saying that someone knows what they did last summer. That is when people started to get hurt. Barry is shot and Helen is pushed out her apartment window. Everyone gets' scared and they all become extremely nervous about all that is happening.
