Public school, bullies, boring subjects, desks with scribbles, eating in the cafeteria, peer pressure, smoking in the bathroom, crushes, recess, riding the bus, sibling rivalry, distant parents, unikely friends, make-believe play, exploring, best friendâs death and
grief, is what youâll find in The Bridge to Terabithia.
Though the writing is superb, the bookâs a downer. My nephew read it in sixth grade last year (had to) and didnât like it, Heâs a good example of most kids- if they had a choice, they wouldnât pick this book to read; especially homeschool kids considering a good part of the story is about public school life.
Katherine Paterson has a very interesting biography, check it out at the site below.
