What is a "lesson learned" from Avi's Nothing But the Truth that can be described in a report?
Many lessons can be learned from Avi's Nothing But the Truth, as it examines several issues of morality and civic duty. I believe one of the strongest lessons is to stand up for what you believe in. Though Philip at first may not have been singing because of his civic duty, throughout the entire situation, he never really takes a stand either way. Many of Philip's and other people's troubles could have been lessened if he would have taken a stand. Avi shows through this novel that taking a stand is not only the right thing to do, but it can also be beneficial.
