    A summary is a brief retelling of a collection of main points. For example, a summary would be explaining what happened in a book or a movie, or at an event. You don't have to mention every single detail, but a quick account of the main parts is what's necessary, the important things. A summary's length depends on what you are summarizing. If it's a chapter book, a summary could just be a few paragraphs.
