    the truth about truman

    the truth about truman was short and you knew exactly what was going to happen but....... i learned a lot from this book. the first thing that i learned is that well it takes some time before you know exactly who you are on the inside. another thing is that you need to know who your true friendsa re and trust them when they tell you something that you question about something or someone. so really it takes in a lot of meaning to me but maybe not to everyone else but i think it will so you should read it.

    Disenchanted with the censorship of their school paper, Zebby resigns as editor. Complaining to her best friend, Amr, the two decide to create a web page. If the school paper won't print the hard-hitting articles that Zebby wants written, then they will create an Internet paper. <BR/><BR/>And so, is born. <BR/><BR/>They soon realize that unless the popular kids start talking about it, no one will bother with the web site. So with some creativity, Zebby gets the ball rolling, and before too long, they have over 400 hits to the site. And people are posting, as well. Zebby and Amr want the site to be truthful and allow anyone to post and add to it. <BR/><BR/>When a vicious poll, "Who is the biggest poseur?" is posted, Zebby and Amr debate about removing it, but instead, decide to leave it up. Little do the two realize that one simple poll will create a snowball effect. <BR/><BR/>Lilly, one of the most popular girls in school, becomes the target of the cyber-bullying. Though some of the information is true, most is false, but the kids at school start to believe it. Soon, Zebby and Amr are fighting with each other, accusing the other of being the perpetrator. <BR/><BR/>When Lilly disappears, everything comes crashing down. The police are called in, and the web site is revealed. <BR/><BR/>THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUMAN SCHOOL is a scary look at how cyber-bullying can occur. News reports make it all too clear that such things can happen in real life. By reading THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUMAN SCHOOL, it's easy to see how one simple web site can hurt an innocent person. The story makes the reader realize that anyone can be hurt, even if the information is false.
