Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Bridge To Terabithia

Here is my second review for the 48 Hour Book Challenge!  Enjoy!  Jess(e) wants to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade.  He practices every morning, before he has to go milk the cow.  He lives on a farm with four sisters and their parents.  One day when new neighbors move into the house next door, he meets Leslie, their 10-year-old daughter.  After a few days, they become friends and they want to make a place where only they can go, and that only they know about.  So they create Terabithia, a “magical” world with a castle built out of a few pieces of wood, that they swing across a creek on the rope to access.  They are the king and queen of Terabithia, and that is their spot to talk and hang out.  When the rain starts pouring for days, Terabithia becomes harder to enter.  In a tale woven of friendship, magical worlds and loss; Bridge To Terabithia is a lovely story that involves lots of imagination.

My thoughts:

Bridge to Terabithia was a very imaginative story.  The friendship in this story is unbreakable, and bond between Jess and Leslie grows stronger as the story goes along.  I love how they just make this world where they are the rulers, and fight off enemies and speak in old english.  It’s just so creative.  Also getting across the creek with a rope; how awesome is that!?!  I want a Terabithia in MY backyard!  The setting for this story was great too.  It is set back in the day, with “fancy, old language” such as, “Yes, ‘m.”  I think that is just funny; I love the way they used to talk back in the olden days.  The ending is soooooooo sad :-(.  If you like classics, this is a great book.


Overall:  8.75 out of 10 XanderStars

Next will be Liar And Spy!  Look for more posts this weekend!
