Quick French question...

I'm writing out a postcard to a friend, and I want her to tell me everything about her vacation in Paris. She speaks *very* little French, so I'm trying to keep it simple. I also don't want to make any mistakes that she, as a learner, may copy.

"Il faut que tu me racontes tout!"
"Il faut que tu me raconte tout!"

...Which of these is right? I asked a native French speaker, but even he couldn't remember whether the "s" is present in this case or not.

Thanks a bunch! Any general rules on when to put the "s" at the end of the tu-form would be greatly appreciated as well.

Cheers,
