Hello!
I have to write a summary of a book that I've read, and I've been writing it, and I'm worried I'm putting in too much detail/making it too specific/too long?
I wasn't sure if I'm supposed to summarize the whole plot in a couple of paragraphs, or if it's like the way I'm doing it, which is mentioning all the notable events that happen each chapter?
