Review by JLShunk
This is one of my favorite childrens book. I keep tissues handy when I read it. It's a quick read.
Review by YV21
Bridge to Terabithia was a great novel by Katherine Paterson. Jess Aarons a poor farm boy with lack of imagination, meets a girl named Leslie Burke. Together they discovered a place filled with magic called Terabithia. Now everyday brings new surprises for them in Terabithia. But when Leslie dies, Jess is troubled and never wants to come back. After a certain amount of time, he invites his youger sister May Belle to be his princess in Terabithia. A great novel, but I think Leslie should have been left alive.

Lesley and Jess imagine the forest as the secret land of Terabithia. A book which you cannot stop reading.
Review by debnance
Poor Jess is pressured everywhere, to find his place at home, at school. Then he meets Leslie and she changes his life. Leslie is able to deal with the pressures of the real world (cruel kids, competition) and is also able to find great joy in the world of the imagination. Ironically, it is on her way into that imaginary world, while she is swinging across a raging river, that Leslie’s rope breaks and she is killed. Instead of being filled with sorrow, however, Jess takes everything Leslie has given him and uses it to help himself and to teach others.
