Bridge to Terabithia illustration will appear here.
Jess and Leslie form a special friendship. They create a magical place in the woods and call it Terabithia. They pretend they are king and queen of their magical palace. In this kingdom they share their secrets.
When Jess takes a trip to Washington with his teacher something terrible happens. When he finds out what happens he wont' want to come back.
The tragical ending to this story changes Jess forever.
I think this is a great story about true friendship. What I like most about this story is that it is a special friendship between a boy and a girl. This story makes you think about how important friendships are.
I recommend this story to anyone above grade four. It can be difficult to read at times.
