A moral dilemma is a problem where you have to choose between doing one thing and another, mostly right or wrong.
The moral dilemma in my book, Under the Same Sky, by Cynthia DeFelice, was that the main character, Joe, could turn in three illegal migrant workers at his dad's farm, or does he want to keep it a secret to keep his friends? Joe solved it by deciding to keep his friends a secret and doing the right thing.
My other book, Nothing But the Truth by Avi, is about a boy named Philip who sang during the national anthem at school. He got suspended for two days. He claimed that it was out of patriotism, though. His moral dilemma was, is this breaking the rules? Or did he do the right thing? I did not finish this book, so I don't know how he solved it.
I had a lot of fun doing lit. circles in GOAL this year. I got to read books I've never heard of before!
