Hello everyone, it’s Camila here! Welcome back to BookWorms, today I’ll be reviewing the Newberry medal winning book, Bridge to Terabithia.
Bridge to Terabithia is a great book for young readers about how friendship conquers all. However, I will say that is a touch on the sad side because one of the characters that I personally cherished the most throughout my reading time has a tragic accident.
Jesse is an ordinary kid who’s getting ready to start fifth grade, and hopes to be the fastest runner in class, he has a tough family life but finds solace in drawing and running. But when he gets to school he is beaten in a race by a new girl, despite everything else they soon find out that they have a lot in common and become best friends. They make up an imaginary world called Terabithia, in which they are king and queen.
Overall it is a book about overcoming fear, the power of imagination, and friendship.
The storyline is pretty easy to understand, but there is, like I said before, a tragedy that some kids may not be able to handle, because it is so abrupt. Jesse also gets bullied and has a rough time with his family. But, it is also a book about coping with bad things that happen, so I’d say around 8+.
Now, for my postly “How would you describe this book in 3-4words?”
Creative, Captivating, Inspiring, (Sort Of) Tragic
