                                                            -KATHERINE PATERSON

This adventurous classic is written by Katherine Paterson,published by Puffin modern classics.The main character of the novel is Jesse Oliver Arons,jr and his best friend Leslie Burke.Jess Aaron's greatest ambition is to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. He will be  practicing all summer and can't wait to see his classmates' faces when he beats them all. But on the first day of school, a new kid, a new girl comes over to the boy's side of the playground  and outruns everyone.Not only does Leslie not look or act like any girls Jess knows, but she also turns out to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. After getting over the shock and humiliation of being beaten by a girl, Jess begins to think Leslie might be okay.

 The two create a secret kingdom in the woods named Terabithia, where the only way to get into the castle is by swinging out over a gully on an enchanted rope. Here they reign as king and queen, fighting off imaginary giants and the walking dead, sharing stories and dreams, and plotting against the schoolmates who tease them.Jess and Leslie find comfortable  in the sanctuary of Terabithia .But one morning a tragic accident befalls Leslie as she ventures alone to Terabithia, and Jess's life is changed forever. I was impressed by their friendship.'This a book that is about two friends who lets their imagination go wild, in a secret land'. I think the author's main point is that to let your own imagination ...The writing is startling good..this is something very special.This book was both, sad and entertaining, full of imagination. I liked this book a lot and would defiantly see the movie and reread the book. I hope my review will make you anxious to read this very interesting book. Thanks for reading my review of Bridge to Terabithia.
