I'm trying to find the theme of the book I'm reading, but I don't really know what exactly is a theme, could anyone give me an idea of what a "theme" of a story is?
-Is the theme = What is the author trying to teach us? Or is it the central message of the story? Thanks

    The theme of the story is the central message and what the author wants you to know.
