Bridge to Terabithia

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 friend’s death and

grief, is what you’ll find in The Bridge to Terabithia.

Though the writing is superb, the book’s a downer. My nephew read it in sixth grade last year (had to) and didn’t like it, He’s a good example of most kids- if they had a choice, they wouldn’t 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.
