Moral Dilemma Literature Circles

A moral dilemma is when you have to choose between right or wrong. The first book I read was Nothing but the  Truth. The moral dilemma in that book was that Philip, the school's prankster was singing the National Anthem at school in the mornings.  There was also a rule at his school that you were not supposed to sing along. After Philip got into the newspaper because of this, the town's adults and adults everywhere started debating whether or not it should be a rule that you can't sing along during the National Anthem. The second book I read was Nobody Else Has To Know. The moral dilemma in that book was that Grampa let Webber {Webb} drive, and Webb hit a little girl. Grampa wants to take blame for the accident and let Webb have a future in Track. During the crash Webb broke his leg on impact so he could not run for the school's track team that season. The little girl that he hit, her name was Taffy Putnam, and Taffy's babysitter goes to Webb's school, and at school and Physical Therapy, Dylis the babysitter tries to guilt trip Webb into admitting things that didn't happen.

  1. I think you're absolutely right but I think Webb needs to take some blame too!

  3. These books sound very fun to read! You described then in a way that says a lot about the book without giving away the end or too much!

  4. When Webb hit the girl with the car, I think that it was a little bit of the Grandpa's fault because it was the grandpa who let Webb drive in the first place, but I still think that Webb should admit he hit the girl instead of getting Grandpa in trouble that he didn't do.
