Bridge to Terabithia Katherine Paterson read online review & book description:

The 40th anniversary edition of the classic Newbery Medal-winning title by beloved author Katherine Paterson, with brand-new bonus materials including an author's note by Katherine herself and a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Kate DiCamillo. 

Jess Aarons has been practicing all summer so he can be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. And he almost is, until the new girl in school, Leslie Burke, outpaces him. The two become fast friends and spend most days in the woods behind Leslie's house, where they invent an enchanted land called Terabithia. One morning, Leslie goes to Terabithia without Jess and a tragedy occurs. It will take the love of his family and the strength that Leslie has given him for Jess to be able to deal with his grief.

Bridge to Terabithia was also named an ALA Notable Children’s Book and has become a touchstone of children’s literature, as have many of Katherine Paterson’s other novels, including The Great Gilly Hopkins and Jacob Have I Loved.

    I never read the book honestly, but I saw the movie and it made me cry. I always wondered why disney never made the 2nd part of bridge to therabithia because the movie is so good is amazing the way they even made it it's so sentimental and so beautiful, the people that banned this book maybe is haters because I never seen any kind of profanity or atheistm coming from this movie. I don't understand why people talk about that this movie promotes atheism, I really want to encourage Disney to make the 2nd part of this movie or the writer to write a second part of this book

    This book is just stunning. I read it when I was pretty young, maybe seven or eight, as I was an avid reader. And I loved it. I truly appreciated the beauty of the novel even at that age, though it is a good book to read with a parent as well. It's hard to describe it, but...Jess Aarons meets Leslie Burke. She introduces him to a whole world of fantasy—inside their heads. Using only their imagination, they create a whole kingdom in the woods. Warning: This novel will make you cry. And yet, it is so beautiful.

    This book was astonishing. In the way the themes, life lessons, morals, are all proposed, is beyond my words. It is almost impossible to describe the goosebumps and excitement and tears I got from this book. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you ever consider reading this, might I say the author is amazing with their work and you will love this piece of literature.
