Plagiarism is a serious offense and not worth the loss of your integrity.The introduction of your summary should take only one paragraph.
Try to outline it as though you are its author, and you are in the pre-writing phase jotting down the characters and the plot of a novel, or the thesis statement, major points, minor points, and supporting details of a non-fiction work.
There is a two-fold advantage in cultivating this habit: Firstly, you will actually be helping your studies and giving yourself a distinct edge as a student; secondly, a summary assignment will never catch you unawares.

If you can do this, it will be reflected in your writing, and it will bring you much satisfaction.
Such satisfaction will not be achieved at all if you look for an easy way out via the Internet.
What the summary assignment requires is that you should give the gist of the argument or the story in your own words.
You are bringing out the author’s major points and some supporting detail without any commentary or opinion of your own.
You have to stick to the bare bones of the plot, the main characters, and the essence of the story and not be sidetracked into any minor issues or subplot.
While summarizing may be informative for your readers who have not read the original work, it is really for your instructor who needs to see if you have done the required reading to be able to summarize it with understanding and with some competence.
